‘Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.’ –Socrates
Welcome to my website. My name is Kimberly Mack and I am the Horizon/GT teacher for Hilltop Elementary and Argyle Intermediate schools. I absolutely love working with these amazing students and feel blessed everyday that I get to collaborate with and facilitate the learning of these special children. This is my 8th year to teach in Argyle Schools and before coming to Argyle, I taught at Donald Elementary in Flower Mound, Texas. I have taught third grade, fifth grade, have been an assistant principal, and landed back in the classroom to teach gifted and talented students!
I designed my website to help both parents and teachers meet the needs of this special group of learners. For parents, I will update the grade level tabs with information regarding our unit of study and the progress we are making. For teachers, I hope you find some ideas and information that you can easily use in the classroom to differentiate activities, create rigor, and increase student engagement. Under the Parent/Teacher resource tab, you will find information on the nature and needs of gifted children as well as requirements for instruction and learning opportunities.
Below are some quotes that inspire me but what inspires me the most is watching my students grow and embrace their gifts in order to make the future better for themselves and others.
