The definition of "Intellectually Gifted" is a child whose intellectual abilities and potential for achievement are so outstanding the child's educational performance in the regular education classroom is adversely affected. "Adversely affected" means that the general curriculum alone is inadequate to adequately meet the student's educational needs.
I am excited to be a part of the APEX program this school year! I am very honored to be given the opportunity to be a partner with you and the classroom teacher in sharing the responsibility of educating your children. Education, especially of gifted children, takes the participation of many, including the student. My goal this year is to challenge, spark excitement, and improve upon their autonomy in their work ethic as they continue in their educational career. (Yes, we will work on vocabulary too!)
