We're a Team!

Howdy, guardians of my galaxy of gifted learners at Maplebrook Elementary!

I get it...our gifted ones ask lots of questions, blow our minds, and keep us on our toes. Each month I will send you information that will hopefully help you and your gifted learner. If there is something specific your learner may be struggling with, email me...I am happy to provide resources to support you. I look forward to working with you to make this an out of this world school year...we're on the same team!
