SISD Gifted & Talented Program

The Gifted and Talented Program is designed to provide an educational environment that recognizes the unique academic, intellectual, and social/emotional needs and talents of gifted students.  

The goal of the program is to encourage and foster critical and compassionate thinking while promoting lifelong learning,  motivating students to evolve and reflect in an ever-changing, global world. 

This is possible through the collaboration of educators who provide rigorous and engaging learning opportunities to gifted students in multiple settings:  appropriate classroom differentiation, elementary pull-out program, out-of school learning opportunities, and secondary advanced academic opportunities.

We are excited to share some advancements to our gifted services.  In addition to cluster grouping and core classroom GT services, elementary students will also receive enrichment during a GT pull-out class provided by our new GT Facilitator, Dr. Tiana Pearce.  

Dr. Pearce earned her Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Literacy from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.  Her goal is to encourage and foster critical and compassionate thinking while promoting lifelong, motivating students to evolve and reflect in an ever-changing, global world. For more information about Dr. Pearce and our Elementary GT Program, you can click here to visit her webpage. Join us in welcoming Dr. Pearce to our Sinton ISD Family.
