About Mr. Calvert

Most of us know Cory Calvert as that guy with the unshakable, positive attitude and seemingly endless patience, who maintains and supports our Makerspace. Some of us may even know that he grew up in Albuquerque, went to school at La Cueva, and earned a bachelor’s degree from UNM in Earth and Physical Sciences. And that, before coming to Georgia O’Keeffe ES, he worked at Cottonwood Montessori as an environmental teacher. But I’ll bet you never knew that in 2003, Cory Calvert and his team smashed the world record for playing the longest ice hockey game ever! With eight players and one ref. on the ice at all times, living on donuts and Red Bull (don’t try this at home!) Cory and his team played for a whopping 125 hours! This record has since been broken, but I think you’ll agree, if you didn’t know it before, our Mr. Makerspace is a pretty awesome guy!
