We asked SAGE members to nominate an educator who’s going above and beyond for gifted students. Our SAGE GT Educator of the Month is Angie Connell, GT Specialist for Heritage Elementary School.

The person who nominated her says, “Angie Connell is our GT Specialist. She has stepped into big shoes by taking our beloved Delaine Hamilton’s place. She has made the transition beautifully. She has come in and introduced our GT kids to a whole new world and done it with such enthusiasm and so much PURPLE.”

“Each week I hear our GT kids consistently talk about what they are doing and loving in GT lead. Angie also does a great job of grabbing our entire population of kids and trying to touch them.”

“She does an amazing job of pulling our parents in because she is so great at technology and covers everything our kids are doing each week with her extensive newsletter. She’s funny, smart and great with the kids and loves seeing the space shuttle across the sky, and loves TCU even more. We feel extremely grateful to have Mrs. Connell at HES.”
