My name is Carole Harrington. I serve Simkins as one of two Teachers for the Academically Gifted. Throughout the school year, I visit 2nd grade classes to conduct whole group lessons focused on thinking skills with the PETS (Primary Education Thinking Skills) curriculum. In addition, I work with 4th & 5th graders in the MAP (Maximizing Academic Potential) program focusing on reasoning and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Working with small groups of students in first grade for enrichment is great fun, too! I enjoy my Mondays at Simkins. That's for sure!
