Izabel Villagomez

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.

Resources:

Great information about giftedness can be found at the Colorado Association of Gifted and Talented and the National Association for Gifted Children. The best resource for terms and definitions can be found through the Colorado Department of Education.
