My Students

I teach Gifted and Talented enrichment classes for four different schools, in the grades kindergarten through fifth.

Some of my students are non-English speakers, but their love for learning is apparent.

My classes consist of diverse learners from various socioeconomic statuses. Some of my students are from low-performing schools and are very excited about their enrichment class, where we can do hands-on activities in addition to the monotone intervention and repetition that usually takes place. This is usually the only time where they are asked to be creative and develop their talents.

My students do not always come from homes where they are told that their future is bright and they can become anything they choose. It is my mission to educate them about all the possibilities that await them and to nurture their talents.

My Project

My students will be able to learn about an owl's lifestyle through careful examination of the pellet's contents. Students will also be able to name adaptations of owls that make them successful hunters. They will be able to discover the relationship between prey and predator first hand through the owl pellets.

My students will work as ornithologists and will use the binoculars to observe and document bird behaviors.

The students will then use the field guides to identify the birds they study.

These resources will enable my class to work in small groups based on personal choice as well as strengths therefore allowing multiple learning styles to become successful. Please help us by providing us with an opportunity to collaborate, discuss and demonstrate our critical thinking.
