Golden Apple: Melissa Culpepper

By Brad Means

Melissa Culpepper teaches 2-5th graders as part of the Horizons Program.

“I was a classroom teacher for 13 years and I took the gifted endorsement classes last year. And I just fell in love with helping those higher-achieving students”, she says.

These gifted youngsters get to benefit from a wide range of lessons from Mrs. Culpepper.

She tells us she has a reading and math block every day.  They also find time for enrichment units where they're doing research and really extending their thinking.

As a parent, Mrs. Culpepper appreciates the importance of instilling a love of learning at home.
