Madison Country Day School
Enrichment Specialist
Waunakee, WI
I came to Gifted Education through my children. During their school years I became well-versed in networking and advocacy with other parents in the Madison Metropolitan School District, and as part of the MMSD TAG Advisory Committee I helped the MMSD write its first TAG Plan in 20+ years, prompted a DPI audit of the district's G/T practices, and helped move the district toward appropriate programming for gifted high school and middle school students. During these years I worked at EAGLE School as an educational assistant and earned my Wisconsin teaching license in English Language Arts in 2014. I am now in my third year of working as an Enrichment Specialist at Madison Country Day School.
