Welcome to Mr. Warren's website !

Now retired after 38 years as a full-time Illinois educator, I frequently substitute teach at several schools in the Illinois Valley area.

  

  June 3, 2013 - My final day  before retiring

 

I have been an Illinois public school educator for 40 years,

the past two part-time since retiring in 2013, having worked

for 21 years (1992-2013) at Putnam County Schools.

 

I stay active by enjoying hobbies, volunteering, hiking, and substitute teaching.

 

  

In addition to substitute teaching, I lead guided hikes at Starved Rock State Park.

 

Check out my Hiking Page to see a few more pictures of my hikes.

MY PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL THOUGHTS ON BALANCE BALLS (STABILITY BALLS/EXERCISE BALLS/YOGA BALLS) IN THE CLASSROOM

(Additionally, there is some research and much anecdotal evidence to support these observations)

 

I am definitely a proponent of using stability balls (exercise/yoga balls) in place of regular chairs for some students. My personal experience is that I have seen it increase the ability of some children to be able to focus, resulting in improved behavior and academic performance. This link connects to just one of many available articles on this use of stability balls. Conducting a search for "stability balls in the classroom (or workplace)" will return a number of informative articles on the subject. Here is a link to another article on using balance balls in the classroom.
