We asked SAGE members to nominate an educator who’s going above and beyond for gifted students. This month’s SAGE GT Educator of the Month is Will Boykin, 5th grade teacher at ASPIRE Academy.


The people who nominated him said: “Mr. Boykin regularly meets individually with students to asses their needs. He has created a classroom climate to help every child know and understand that they matter and have incredible potential.”

“Mr. Boykin is wholly committed to the academic and social/emotional success of each student. He embodies what it means to be a teacher of gifted students and is a master educator.”

“He doesn’t do anything halfway, and expects the same from his students by creating an environment where it’s safe for them to take those risks and be successful.”
