Why Was Gifted Started

With 17 years of experience as a certified elementary teacher, instructional strategist, and assistant principal, I have focused my career on providing children with effective learning environments where they excel!  Along with my experience, I have earned a Bachelors, Masters, and Specialists degree all in the field of education.  Through my experience and numerous years of study, I've studied and analyzed a lot of data and learned that a strong foundation built during children's early years was the key component for students who were performing above grade level.  Statistics show that children who enter kindergarten with a solid foundation stay on track or rise above those who are lacking those strong foundational skills.  After seeing this trend over so many years, the concept of Gifted was created to provide children with the foundation they need for their future!  We established Gifted in 2017 based on our passion to see children thrive, excel and learn in a fun, loving environment that will give them enriching experiences that will impact their little lives forever! When children are exposed to a creative, nurturing and safe, curriculum based, enriching environment, they rise above all standards.  Children are highly intelligent and our goal is to over prepare them academically and socially for a successful future.
