Description

Class Experience

These learning goals will differ from student to student, and all of them are ongoing and not final, but they offer a general understanding of the objectives.
-Mastery of the content at a pace appropriate to the student's ability.
-Depth of learning that enhances logic and critical thinking development.
-Practice of metacognitive skills.
-Build creativity and out-of-the-box thinking.
-Develop a sense of self-understanding within a cohort of same-aged peers.
-Evolve problem solving ability.
-Foster independent and self directed learning.
-Develop relationships with other gifted kids. 
I have over 15 years of experience teaching elementary aged students, and hold both a Ph.D. and a M.Ed in education.  I also have a current license to teach PreK through sixth grade.  My educational background includes extensive training in teaching core academic subjects, gifted/creative logic, and all manners of pedagogical methods.  Personally, I am a gifted thinker and I am guiding my two young gifted children through their own learning journeys.
The student may want to expand upon his/her learning and add to the projects done in class.  This will be encouraged, but is not required.  Optional extensions or homework may be offered at times.
A notebook (Either wide ruled or college ruled depending upon student's preference.)
Pencil, and occasionally other school supplies such as paper, glue, tape, scissors and markers/colored pencils/crayons.
PDF handouts will be posted in the classroom to print as needed.
Some activities may need additional, easy-to-find household supplies. 
*Please check the classroom description for each activity to see what supplies are needed.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Enrichment logic can often be challenging for some students.  Students will be actively encouraged to think creatively so please make sure that your child understands this.  The class pace will be faster due the nature of the gifted learning acceleration.  It's meant to challenge student thinking and it may be uncomfortable to experience that "brain stretch" at first.  Please stay in touch with me, during our Flexible session, and I will be happy to help your gifted thinker in any manner that I am able.
