Gifted & Talented Teacher

Grade 2 - Enrichment & Grade 3-5 Gifted & Talented

  • Our vision for this program is to create a supplemental, academically enriched environment that encourages creative and critical thinking.  In turn, students then apply this higher-level thinking across all curricula and aspects of their daily learning.  Additionally, the program is designed to foster an inquiry-based learning environment where students will participate in divergent and analytical activities.  

    Typically, students are pulled twice a week (grades 3-5) and once a week (grade 2) for forty minutes into a small group setting with other Gifted and Talented students from their grade level to examine different topics that extend their classroom curriculum.  Children in this program complete units of study in the realms of mathematics, social studies, language arts, and science, often overlapping in content area as we promote project and interest-based learning.  STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) components are incorporated into each unit of study to further enhance the critical thinking skills needed to be successful in the 21st-century world.
