This should be an exciting year! I am looking forward to working with all of you at Carver Elementary! I will use this blog to give you updates and share pictures of our activities. I’d like to tell you a little about myself. This is my 18th year of teaching, with a break in the middle to raise my kids. I have been back with Henrico since 2010 and been an Elementary Gifted Resource Teacher at many of the elementary schools in Henrico. I have two children, one in college at RIT, and a senior at Henrico High School Center for the Arts. I was also a classroom teacher for 9 years in both Henrico and Virginia Beach.
I am looking forward to seeing all my students at Maybeury and getting to know all of my new students at Carver!
I am looking forward to working with all of your kids this year!
Here is our new gifted brochure that will help you navigate the gifted identification process and understand our programs that are offered.
I am also including our gifted goals that drive the instruction for my lessons that I use with identified students.
First Grade – Small group collaboration – math concepts and critical thinking.
Second Grade – Small group – critical thinking skills
Third Grade – Small Group –Critical Thinking/Problem Solving/Logic Problems
Fourth Grade – Identified Students -descriptive writing and mathematical problem solving
Fifth Grade – Identified students – Critical Thinking/Writing/6th grade math SOLs
Thank you everyone for your patience, we are working hard to complete the gifted identification process by April 17, 2015. We will send you a letter indicating the decision by the school identification team by then. If you have any questions, please contact me email@example.com.
