Gifted and Talented

  • Tara Yancy
    Campus GT Specialist


    Keller ISD Gifted and Talented students are clustered with teachers who have received the state-mandated 30 hours professional development in Gifted and Talented Nature and Needs, Identification, Assessment, and Advanced Curriculum. GT Students meet with a GT Specialist for in-depth study and activities designed to address the unique social-emotional needs of gifted students. Though a specific GT curriculum, Specialists facilitate the growth of students as independent, self-directed learners, with the development of skills, concepts, and positive attitudes within the cognitive, emotional, and social domains. Students are encouraged to pursue areas of interest in selected disciplines through guided and independent research leading to the development of advanced-level products and/or performances. The 21st Century Skills of innovation, communication, problem solving, collaboration, critical thinking, and information/media/ technological literacy are reinforced as KISD’s gifted learners become lifelong learners.
