I teach fifth grade gifted students Language Arts and Math. This is my eighth year teaching fifth grade. In the past, I developed math curriculum for my school division and served as the Math Instructional Leader for my school.
My focus is on real world learning, whether it is relating the subject the students are learning to their experiences, using project-based learning, or integrating hands-on experiences.

Hi! I am a fifth grade teacher at a gifted center and I have been teaching for eight years. I am also happily married with three wonderful and energetic boys. I decided to start my store to share more about gifted education and practices that I use in my classroom. I hope that you are able to take away some ideas to support the gifted learners in your classroom. Thanks for visiting my store!
