• My name is Carole Harrington. I serve Simkins as one of two Teachers for the Academically Gifted. At the beginning of each school year, I visit 2nd grade classes to conduct whole group lessons focused on Building Thinking Skills and then transition to working with small groups in the 2nd Grade Nurture program. In addition, I work with 4th & 5th graders in the MAP (Maximizing Academic Potential) program. I am super excited to meet and work with all the super Simkins students and staff!
