• What makes a child gifted and talented may not always be good grades in school, but a different way of looking at the world and learning.  By Chuck Grassley                                                                      

    Welcome to Cone Elementary.  My name is Kathy Mayer and I am the AG Curriculum Specialist assigned to this school.  I am at the school on Mondays and Wednesdays working with identified students in ELA and Math. In addition to working with gifted students, I also serve students in MAP (Maximizing Academic Potential) who may miss the eligibility criteria in one area.  It is hoped by working with them using a Habits of Mind curriculum, they will qualify in the future.  Besides working with the school's students, I also support the classroom teachers by providing differentiation ideas or locating other materials that may provide challenging work for their AG students.
