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 Jennifer Spence, who teaches 4th grade in ASPIRE Academy at Glenhope Elementary.

The person who nominated her says,“Jennifer challenges the students to go beyond traditional practices and basic thinking. She encourages each student to be him/herself. My son is in her class and he is excited to go to school each day. He is eager to share what they have doneand all of the things that his teacher does to make his classroom special. He wants to learn more about many topics because of the interest she sparks in the classroom.”
