I am a Virginia teacher who's taught 3rd, 4th and 5th grade in the classroom before earning my gifted endorsement. I am now a k-5 gifted resource teacher providing gifted services for identified students and enrichment/talent development services for teachers!
I believe in open ended, student inquiry based instruction. I believe students need multiple attempts at enrichment challenges to gain confidence and independence to reach their highest potential. I believe students will be invested when teachers offer student choice to drive instruction while facilitating a love for learning. Please remember to always read directions carefully with students. If students have not often received enrichment, the first attempts may be scary for them!

I live in Hanover, Virginia with my firefighter husband (Robbie), daughter (Reese), & two dogs (Dixie & Kipp)! I love my job and watching students work through enrichment challenges gaining independence and self confidence along with a love for learning. I hope these resources are helpful :)
