Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Eliese Ghaffari, and this is my fourth year with Norwood Elementary. This will be my fifth year teaching Kindergarten, as I taught for a year in Telluride prior to buying a home in Norwood. I have my Masters in Education with my focus on Differentiated Instruction. I have been working within the realm of teaching since my first job at 16. I have done everything from swimming and snowboarding lessons to outdoor education. I found my passion for teaching early childhood while completing my student teaching in Kindergarten. Since then I have taught preschool, worked as a paraprofessional, substituted, and earned my masters degree. All of these experiences have helped prepare me for my own classroom!
Outside of school I enjoy hiking, biking, rock climbing, and snowboarding with my two dogs and husband.
