I am the Gifted and Talented specialist for my district and have been teaching Gifted and Talented for 5 years. I have presented at state conferences and have received my certification in Gifted.
Full S.T.E.A.M. ahead! I believe in an interdisciplinary, S.T.E.A.M. approach to teaching. I prefer to be more hands-off to provide more inquiry based experiences for my students. I also believe in the importance of global education for the Gifted! I'm passionate about integrating the arts in education!
