Hello, my name is Marijoy Cordero. I am the Resource Teacher for the Gifted (RTG) and Young Scholars Coach (YS) at Carlin Springs Elementary School. Our school’s goal is to create an environment where all children feel safe, have talents nurtured and developed, have the ability to reach their learning goals, experience success in their lives, and ultimately be happy. I support this goal by working closely with students, teachers, administrators and families. I provide access, affirmation, and advocacy for our students through lessons and learning activities and tasks. Through instructional coaching, I work closely with teachers to develop opportunities for differentiation and enrichment in various content areas by incorporating critical and creative thinking strategies (CCT) . I advocate for the interests of students with the support of administrators. I am a resource for families who have questions about our program, their children, and critical and creative thinking strategies.
