Orangewood continues to seek out opportunities for developing their teachers. For the next two years, Orangewood will offer its teachers professional development towards gifted endorsements for our K4–12th grade teachers and administrators.
The course instructor is Dr. Denise Spirou, head of an experimental private school for high performing students in West Palm Beach.
Thirty Orangewood teachers and staff chose to begin this study to better understand how God has created the gifted mind and how students process information. Understanding how to raise the proverbial academic bar for gifted students will also help us teach and challenge all of our students better.
