Adair County Gifted and Talented

Candice Flatt-Gifted Coordinator

My name is Candice Flatt. I am the Gifted and Talented Coordinator for the Adair County School District. I oversee gifted services in our district K-12 and work with students, parents, teachers, guidance counselors, and principals to ensure students are properly identified as gifted and receive appropriate gifted services for their unique needs. I strive to help students understand the nature of giftedness, model effective communication skills along with critical and creative thinking skills, and ensure our gifted learners are challenged and grow in the area of giftedness. I progress monitor my students during the fall, winter, and spring to ensure they are growing in a positive direction through MAP tests, teacher checklists, behavioral inventories, anecdotal notes, formal test data, informal test data, and/or more.

I work with students in grades K-12 in pull-out classes, cluster grouping, independent study, teacher consultation, and more. This is my 21st year in education. I have a passion for learning and a love of teaching students new things. I facilitate pull-out weekly gifted and talented classes in grades 1-8, and I enjoy being part of new discoveries with my students. I love my job! I love the students I work with every day, and I hope to pass on my love of learning and enthusiasm to them through my teaching.

I am a graduate of Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in P-5 education. I have a Master of Arts degree in elementary education with an endorsement in gifted and talented instruction/coordinator. I also have a Rank I in School Principalship-All grades. Some of my additional responsibilities are:

  • Member of the National Association of Gifted Education
