Letter to Students & Parents

Dear Future College Graduates & Parents/Guardians:

It is with much excitement that I serve in my 5th year as AIG Coordinator for Weldon City Schools and 18th 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
