From Mrs. Villarreal
Teachers, Please send me the names of those students you will be referring for GT testing. It is recommended that you conference about the referral with your partner teacher. Let me know if you want me to test in all subjects or just the subject he/she is most successful. Keep in mind that testing is a two day, all day process. Please keep in mind the test is timed, lengthy, and students will also have to write a composition. Consider the GT character traits I have been sending in the past two briefs before referring.
Teachers, please let me know if you have any students that need to meet with me regarding test anxiety. I have received a few referrals for this and I would like to help our students with some strategies prior to testing.
Thanks to Mrs. Beckwith, Mrs. Wilson, Mrs. Alvarado, Mrs. Wyrick, Mrs. McPartlin and office staff for all the treats, cards, and signs!! They really made my day!!
