Home

Hello! My name is Maggie Rowbottom. Welcome to my website for Denver Public Schools - Gifted and Talented!

I am the GT itinerant representing Fairview, MSLA, Inspire, and College View Elementary schools in DPS.  
Since I have so many buildings and little time at each site, here I am able to share resources, important documents, and information on Gifted and Talented Programming in DPS. 

Here on the home page I update GT announcements, parent resources, tips for teachers, student work, and more to support you all. (see below). 

<<<My other subpages to the left are intended to help teachers or parents take next steps for learning about giftedness, testing children for GT, and finding ways to differentiate and support children in the classroom and/or at home. Thanks for checking in, and enjoy! 😊
