Sean Thorpe

5th Grade

My name is Sean Thorpe. I am a graduate of Westminster College School of Education with a dual licensure in Elementary Education and Special Education.  I am so excited to be teaching Fifth Grade at Canyon Rim Academy!  I am passionate about seeing children learn and discover knowledge.  I strongly believe in allowing children to discover and engage in learning through being self directed, taking leadership, and problem solving. Using these characteristics, we will explore American History using simulations, rich math tasks with a growth mindset, Hands On Science Labs and programmable technology, and much more!

A bit about myself... I love to read, run, hike, and do just about anything outdoors.  I enjoy traveling to new and exciting places, and just returned from Thailand this summer.  I am the camp director at Camp Valor, a camp for kids with bleeding disorders, and I pretend to be a food connoisseur by baking in my spare time.
