Hello and welcome to Elementary Gifted and Talented. I am Melissa Austin your G/T teacher. I am beginning my 19th year teaching at Mount Ida. This is my third year as your G/T teacher. I had a very rewarding and great time last year. You can look forward to another exciting and challenging and very busy year.
Kindergarten through Second Grade will be attending weekly G/T Enrichment classes through the hour long Library class that each grade attends.The Third and Fourth grade will be doing research projects over various topics throughout year and then second semester they will be studying types of art and doing a research project with a culminating visit from the Arkansas Arts Tour. They also will be writing and illustrating and having their very own books published.
They will continue their Chess and Quiz Bowl competitions. Hopefully they will continue to bring home the trophies and ribbons as they Have done in the past. I am so proud of everyone!!
I am excited for this new school year!! Please check back as I will be adding new information and dates of activities as they are scheduled.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. My school phone number is 867-4778 and my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
