The Ensworth Grind

Many of you know today’s Ensworth Grind feature, third grade teacher, Ensworth parent and former student Mrs. Barbara Royse.



How long have you been working here at Ensworth? What originally brought you here?

This is my sixth year teaching third grade at Ensworth. I began my career in education twenty-three years ago teaching elementary-aged children with learning disabilities. I then taught English and reading to fifth and sixth graders for six years. While I loved this age group, I found myself drawn back to the elementary-aged child, and luckily the opportunity to teach third grade brought me to Ensworth.

What is your favorite subject or lesson to teach third graders?

It is difficult to choose a favorite, but we just began our Charlie and the Chocolate Factory unit and it is definitely a fun learning experience. I love seeing how excited my students are as the story unfolds. They enjoy making predictions and discussing the different personalities of each of the characters. Later the students complete a candy project where they invent their own candy which has special magical powers and present these projects to the class. The unit culminates with each child making their own chocolate Wonka bar.

You do a collaboration called reading buddies with our pre-1st students. Could you tell us a little about that?

One of the highlights of the third graders’ year is the task of building a relationship with a reading buddy. Every third grader is assigned a pre-first grader for the year and is responsible for selecting appropriate books to read with their buddies. Each week they spend time reading together.  While this is rewarding for both, the greater benefit is the time they spend together talking with each other and developing a strong friendship. It is rewarding to observe these relationships develop and we look forward to this weekly time together.

What is the one Ensworth event you look forward to every year?

Wow…there are so many traditions throughout our school year.  One of the most special is the opening assembly on the first day of school each year. Mr. Moseley welcomes everyone and discusses our word of the year. There is a feeling of excitement and anticipation about the year to come and it is fun to watch former students moving on to the next grade. This assembly sets a nice tone to the beginning of the new school year.

Who is the next Ensworth Faculty member at the high school you would like to see profiled?

We will wrap up our Dominican/Haiti team with Brooke Morgan.
