• Welcome!  Here is a breakdown of the services I provide for our gifted learners in grades 3 - 8:

    • Teacher of record for the Walk Up 3rd grade math class.  Students in this class are in the gifted cluster third grader class.  They receive a compacted math curriculum of both third grade and fourth grade standards.  This sets them up to continue in the accelerated Walk Up math program at Sonoran Foothills.
    • SPARK enrichment teacher for grades 3-6.  SPARK stands for Supporting Potential and Achievement in Remarkable Kids.  I provide enrichment for the gifted identified students twice a week for 30 minutes each class.  These activities sharpen critical thinking, deductive reasoning, logic, communication, collaboration, and creativity.  This time is NOT focused on math or ELA, just enrichment. We also work on Social Emotional Learning and Executive Functioning Skills.
    • ELA services:
      •  I work with the advanced ELA classes in grades 3-7 one to two times per week, depending on the schedule.
    • Math services. 
      • I work with the advanced Math classes in grades 4 & 6 one to two times per week, depending on the schedule.
    • Teacher of record for the Gifted Elective for Algebra I students.
