I teach Elementary Gifted Education, also called REACH, at two Elementary schools. I will be collaborating with the Kindergarten and First Grade teachers at each site to "push-in" to classrooms to provide exposure and enrichment to all students at those grade levels, and also to help identify younger students for the REACH program. At second grade, the REACH department will do a universal screening to identify those students who will qualify for services. The third, fourth and fifth grade REACH students will be pulled to my classroom twice a week to receive targeted, specific enrichment and lessons tailored to each student and their learning interests and styles.
Students are expected to be responsible for their own learning and behavior. As REACH students, they will be given a great deal of exposure to many ways of critical thinking, problem solving, creative expression, and learning about how they learn! They are expected to be kind, collaborative, communicative, and willing to try! We have a lot of fun in our classroom!
