My Students

As a Gifted and Talented Facilitator, I am expected to also be a leader in our buildings. With this responsibility, it is imperative that I find a plethora of resources that will meet the needs of such an endeavor to encourage the leaders of tomorrow.

I need the opportunity to research various resources based upon the use of differentiation, creativity, inspiration, and leadership in my GT classroom.

I currently serve K-5 students in the gifted and talented program. These students come from a variety of socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. I need the resources in differentiation in order to be able to instruct them all in life-impacting lessons.

My Project

As a GT Facilitator, I am constantly seeking professional resources to further my knowledge in a variety of academic areas. I need the following books to help with meeting the needs of my students: "Developing Assessment-Capable Visible Learners Grades K-12: Maximizing Skill, Will, and Thrill (Corwin Literacy)," "Learner-Centered Innovation: Spark Curiosity, Ignite Passion and Unleash Genius," "Raising Creative Thinkers Guidebook: Becoming a 21st Century Educator," "Igniting Children with the 5 E's: Explore, Experience, Examine, Elevate, and Express," and many more.

I need the variety of professional books to further my ability to encourage my students to reach for the stars in their educational endeavors.

Books such as "Empower: What Happens When Students Own Their Learning, The Limitless School: Creative Ways to Solve the Culture Puzzle," and "Grit in the Classroom: Building Perseverance for Excellence in Today's Students," will be used to better my craft in educating GT students.
