Crestridge Magnet Center
Gifford Park Elementary
Welcome to the Gifted and Talented program! I have been in education since 1997. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Gifted Education. I am the Gifted and Talented facilitator at Columbian, Crestridge, Edison and Gifford Park Elementary Schools. Students at each of my schools qualify for Gifted and Talented services by achieving high scores on standardized tests or by teacher nominations based on classroom performance. The students have classes scheduled weekly in their areas of strength. Specialized G/T instruction consists of math, language arts and creative activities incorporating the G/T framework. Students are engaged in high level, enriching curricular extensions. Feel free to contact me at anytime with questions, comments, or concerns.
