Welcome to Ms. Agell's home page! 
FOR MANY MORE RESOURCES, please visit our District GT Instructional Support Site.

I am also happy to announce A Field Guide to Gifted Students, a book produced with my former Yarmouth colleague, Molly (Smith) Kellogg. Prufrock Press recorded our webinar about this introductory book, suitable for teachers and parents.

I provide enrichment/GT groups in the language arts and coordinate enrichment for students needing more challenges in social studies (including National History Day projects), the visual and performing arts, and sometimes even science. 

If it's math you are curious about, contact my colleague, Bob Gross!

For a sense of instructional support work, please visit my blog: Footnotes from Room 104.

I love working in a district that so truly values Inquiry and Writing.
Here's a link to our most recent LEGENDA, issue 24 (!), the literary magazine of HMS.
Here's the original cover, just for fun (and to honor Harrison Royale, the dragon in the vent, our true editor!)

If you would like more information on Gifted/Talented/Enrichment screening and services, please click on this Chapter 104/GT link through our district's Instructional Support portal.

See the sidebar at left for other destinations, including many places in which students can publish their writing! Why not?

One of my cherished district roles is co-advisor of the HMS Civil Rights Team, associated with the Maine Attorney General's statewide Civil Rights Teams Efforts. The mission of the Civil Rights Team Project (CRTP) is to increase the safety of elementary, middle level, and high school students by reducing bias-motivated behaviors and harassment in our schools. The CRTP accomplishes this by supporting student civil rights teams in our schools.

Our district is working with Maine Intercultural Communication Consultants. 

Please see my contact information in the sidebar.
