Letter to Students & Parents

Dear Future College Graduates & Parents/Guardians:

It is with much excitement that I serve in my 6th year as AIG Coordinator for Weldon City Schools and 19th year as an educator. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to serve you (students) and your children (parents/guardians). In addition to AIG, I've taught English/Language Arts, Social Studies, and AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination).
 
As parent and teacher of AIG students, I am well aware of the needs of gifted learners and will provide services to help meet those needs. Students will be challenged to replace conventional thinking with “out of the box” thinking as we work together to improve the following skills:
 
  • Critical/Higher order thinking
  • Writing
  • Speaking & Listening
  • Cornell Note-taking, Summarizing, & Annotating
  • Inquiry/Problem-solving
  • Collaboration
  • Organization
  • Independent study
  • Reading
  • Academic competitions
  • Interest-based projects
  • Personal accountability
  • College & Career readiness

Please know, future college graduates and parents, that I am always only a phone call, text message, or email away. 

Educationally Yours,
 
Krissy P. Martin

Harvard Academies Programs

Greetings AIG Scholars,

I hope all is well. I am sharing an exciting opportunity with you all: Harvard Academies. This unique initiative enables students from all over the country to virtually participate in tailored 16-hour programs in Politics, Pre-Med, Pre-Law, Business, Coding, and Consulting. 

There are costs associated with the programs, so please let me know if you are interested and would like to participate. I will work to secure funding once I have a total number. Please email me at [email protected] to let me know the program(s) that interest you. If enough students are interested, we may be able to have a Weldon City cohort. 

Refer to the website for more details. 

Happy Learning,

Mrs. Martin
