About Mr. Conver
Chris Conver has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a master’s degree in curriculum and instructional design from University of Phoenix. He has also earned all of the credits required for a bachelor’s in history with an emphasis on U.S. history and will soon earn his bachelor’s degree in information technology and software development soon.
Conver feels his best quality as a teacher is making education fun and relevant to his students. “When I design and deliver my lessons, I try to make them so the students want to be in my class,” he said.
When teaching at Athlos, Conver always looks forward to the movement. “There are many schools that want students in their desks the entire class time to learn,” he said. “However, this is a difficult thing to do. Athlos wants movement breaks; we want the kids to be active throughout the day to help them learn better. Incorporating movement into the lessons keeps students involved and interested in what is going on.”
Favorite Performance Character Trait: Grit
“Grit has always been one that I relate to the most,” he said. “I have always refused to fail or stop striving for my goals, regardless of what happens. We cannot control when bad things happen, but we can control how we respond. My response is always to keep going forward.”
