Welcome to the Gifted and Talented program!  My name is Kristin Johnson, and I have been in education for 20 years.  This is my 13th year working with high ability learners. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Miami University (OH) and an endorsement in Gifted Education from the  University of Iowa.  I am the Gifted and Talented facilitator at Dundee, Standing Bear and Jackson.  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 classes consist of math and language arts lessons incorporating the G/T framework (problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, research, and the Habits of Mind).  Feel free to contact me at anytime with questions.
