Our SAGE GT Educator of the Month for May is the Principal of Timberline Elementary, Shelley Ingram, who is completing her first year at the school.

The person who nominated her wrote:

“Principal Ingram is supportive of the GT program and GC-SAGE. She’s always energetic and personally attends as many school functions as her schedule allows. She often goes above and beyond–for example, making an effort to learn to speak Spanish due to the fact that our school has a large Spanish-speaking population. But most importantly, I like that she always has a personalized encouraging word for every student she encounters. She looks them in the eye/grabs their attention to let them know they’re valued and is challenging the students, including the GT students, to aspire for their best.”​
