GT student testimonial
Hear From a GT Student
The Texas Association for the Gifted & Talented defines a "gifted and talented" student as a child/youth who performs at or shows the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience or environment and who exhibits high-performance capability in an intellectual, creative or artistic area, possesses an unusual capacity for leadership, and/or excels in a specific academic field. However, I define a "gifted and talented" student as an inquisitive, unique, and capable student whose thirst for knowledge goes beyond the classroom walls.
Being a GT student honestly means the world to me. It has allowed me to not only go above and beyond in my academics, but I've also been able to forge strong relationships with other GT students and gain a deeper level of self-confidence. On my wall in my room is a bright red piece of paper I received from my GT teacher, a mantra of self-love and self-assurance printed in bold on it. I've look at that piece of paper an immeasurable amount of times now, filled with pride of the person I have become.
