Wisconsin Association for Talented Award
Each year, the
Wisconsin Association for Talented and Gifted seeks to honor those who have
made an impact in Wisconsin to further the quality education of gifted
children. These awards are presented at the Fall Conference held annually in
October. On October
10, our Director of Educator Effectiveness, Jennifer Petruska, was honored as
the Gifted Educator of the Year. Prior
to joining the 21st Century Preparatory School family, Jennifer served as the
Gifted and Talented Coordinator for Riverview School in Silver Lake, Wisconsin
for nine years. In her time there, she increased gifted and talented services
for students in kindergarten through eighth grade, led professional development
on differentiation and data analysis, collaborated with and coached teachers,
coordinated several family nights each year, and added multiple extracurricular
enrichment opportunities for all students.
She plans to bring her experiences to 21st Century Preparatory School to
increase student learning for all students. Congratulations, Ms. Petruska!
