About this Course

In this course, you will look at six different ways gifted students may present themselves. Each "type" shows how these characteristics can be beneficial or challenging for our students. You will also look at strategies and do a short case study on a student you have now or have had in the past, and reflect which type that seem to fit. Last, you will choose to further investigate one "type" and learn a bit more about this.

Meet the Instructor

Photo of Jean PaunaMy teaching experience began in Minnesota where I taught art for 12 years. After moving to Ohio, I earned a gifted license and taught gifted for 4 years. At that point, I became a gifted coordinator and have worked as a coordinator for the last 16 years in a few different areas of the state in that capacity.

I will be Summit ESC's gifted coordinator. I will also be helping out in other curriculum areas as needed since I also have a background in the visual/performing arts as well as gifted certification.
Some duties may include:

  • Gifted identification/overseeing written education plans
  • Helping/advising on acceleration requests
  • Helping to ensure compliance with any ODE requests
