Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!

As the Gifted Resource teacher, I visit kindergarten and first grade classrooms once a week. During my visit we work through lessons centered around the theme of exploration in kindergarten and patterns in first grade. Lessons are designed to stretch student thinking.

I also work with teachers in grades 2-5 to collaboratively plan differentiated curriculum for our gifted and high achieving students. We have a "push-in" model where I visit classrooms to model and co-teach lessons. Each grade level is anchored around a grade level theme to stretch conceptual wondering and thinking. (Grade 2-Patterns, Grade 3-Structures, Grade 4-Relationships, and Grade 5-Change)

Parents interested in having their child assessed for Gifted Identification will need to visit the Virginia Beach City Public Schools website and find Gifted tab under Programs. You will find a link to fill out an online application. Please refer to the Testing Information chart below for specific dates and deadlines for application submission. No late applications are accepted.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns you have about gifted instruction or testing.

*Parent applications can be accessed online at:  Gifted Application Online.
