Briefly, let me introduce myself to you. My name is Emily Gregory. This will be my 22nd year in education and teaching gifted and talented students. I have my bachelor's degree in marketing and master's degree in early childhood from Troy State University. In the spring of 2001, I finished my certification in gifted education from the University of Alabama. I just finished my Education Specialist Degree in Instructional Technology from Auburn University in Montgomery in Spring 2017. The activities for this school year will focus on students' interests, independent research, cooperative group work, problem-solving activities, physical science, thinking skills, environmental issues, artwork, thinking games and puzzles, and much more!
