Welcome to the world of GaTE - Gifted and Talented Education in Trussville.  I have been teaching gifted children for a very long time and love it.  That is why I am still teaching.  I have taught in several districts in Pennsylvania, Mississippi and 4 systems in Alabama.  It has been my pleasure to be with the Trussville System since before its inception.  I earned my bachelor's degree at Waynesburg College in Pennsylvania and my Master's in Gifted Education from the University of Southern Mississippi.  

We are very excited about the opportunities that are available to our gifted students this year.   Our gardens will provide a laboratory for us to examine the science of soil.  We will be exploring the workings of rockets and how we landed safely on the moon.  Our entrepreneurial skills will be honed through our Marketplace program, and we will be exploring the world of robotics with LEGOs using the EV3 Mindstorm & WeDo programs.  It is going to be an exciting and jam packed year.
