February 2019 Teacher Spotlight

Steve Orozco

Physical Education Teacher, PreK – 2nd Grade 
New York City Public School 228
The Ivan Lafayette Early Childhood School of the Arts – “The Little School with a Heart”

How long have you been a teacher?

I have been teaching for over 15 years.

How did you learn about Math & Movement?

I went to a session on Math & Movement at Shape America’s 95th Annual Eastern District Conference at Atlantic City in May 2016. Suzy Koontz, Math & Movement founder, was the speaker of the very engaging presentation.

How long have you been using Math & Movement in your classroom?

I have been using Math & Movement with my PE students at PS 228 since the start on the 2017-2018 school year.

What changes have you seen in your students since using Math & Movement?

Children are more focused in class; They are motivated and eager to incorporate movement and math skills into the PE program.

What is your favorite floor mat and why?

I like them all; however, I especially like the Skip Counting by 3’s mat because it gives the second graders a challenge. Most of them have not been introduced to multiplication yet and some of them set high standards for themselves and strive to achieve their goals.
