GEM Award Winner: Scarlett Randall 0

ITAG/SAGE is pleased to announced the 2012 GEM Award Winner: Scarlett Randall.

Scarlett is in her 24th year of teaching, and has been advocating for and teaching gifted children since 2001. She taught in a full-time multi-grade gifted classroom at Whitney Elementary (a Title School) in Boise, Idaho. She became well-versed in the varying needs of low-income gifted and twice-exceptional students. So many students have benefited from her outreach and advocacy for all gifted learners. Scarlett currently teaches 3rd and 4th grade GT students at Cynthia Mann Elementary. She has a vibrant classroom community where students are taken deeply into the math and sciences. STEM education is a passion for Scarlett. She takes every opportunity to develop a rich curriculum that integrates the math and sciences to instill this excitement in her students.

In 2011, she became the southwestern regional coordinator for Invent Idaho. Invent Idaho is a statewide student invention program which has provided a forum for thousands of young inventors in grades one through eight. Invent Idaho teaches the inventive thinking process in an interdisciplinary curriculum – perfect for incorporating STEM education by addressing numerous state standards. Young inventors participate in progressive levels of competitions, including three Regional events held across Idaho, culminating in an Invent Idaho State Finals event. Scarlett is an exceptional and caring educator and GT advocator.  We are honored to present Scarlett with the GEM Award.
