Krista Shipman - Gifted Coordinator

Welcome to my class!

I’m very excited to have your child in Gifted Resource class.  We will have a weekly class where I will be enriching lessons in all subjects.  We will be doing activities and projects that extend the standards being taught in the classroom.  In addition to resource, I will be collaborating with your child’s teacher for lessons in their classrooms.
