Meet Our Gifted and Talented Team!
Talented and Gifted Coordinator
Hi, My name is Mrs. Villagomez and I teach GT as well as RTI. I have been a teacher at RCA for 3 years, and in the education field for 9 years. I LOVE working with students and watching them learn and grow! I am a lover of all things puzzling, nerdy, creative, weird, and curious! You can find me in room 134 working with students to be the best they can be.
We invite parents of gifted learners to participate in virtual small-group discussions concerning the social-emotional needs of gifted learners. We will address topics such as what is giftedness, characteristics of gifted children, communication, motivation, and underachievement.
You are welcome back if you have participated in the past, too!
Groups will be led by trained facilitators from the School District 11 Gifted and Talented Department. While these groups will be similar to our SENG Model Parent Groups, parents who have previously participated in SENG groups are welcome and encouraged to join these shorter, more focused and thematic discussions.
Each family will receive A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children—an invaluable 390 page guidebook for parents, grandparents, and others who love a gifted child.
Each group of 6 to 8 parents will meet virtually in four, one-hour sessions. Please plan to attend all four sessions.
Registration is free and open to all School District 11 parents of gifted children.
Choose from these sessions/groups:
6:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays -- February 17th, February 24th, March 3rd, and March 10th
6:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Thursdays -- February 18th, February 25th, March 4th, and March 11th
5:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Mondays – February 22nd, March 1st, March 8th, and March 15th
