Total Talent Portfolio

Sometimes, your situation or condition shape you to a certain direction. For some of you, this is news. I am going back to school,  learning to be an educator, in gifted and talented.
Yup, I go to UNCO, working on certification in Special Ed GT.

This has given me a different perspective of understanding what are most of the teachers facing. I am now even more respectful to teachers. They have a huge responsibilities.

Having say that, I decided to share what I've learned to you, educators, teachers, parents at home.  Before even we start on deciding lesson plan or curriculum, the first thing we need to do is understanding what is our student's interests and needs.  Inspired by Renzulli's Total Talent Portfolio, I put together this google survey that you can use at your school. Thank you to my professor, Jennifer Ritchotte.

Our logo

Yay, we made our logo. Do you see a "C3DO" in our blue logo? The "C" and "D" is created from imaginary electric plug. The "3" is the white space and the "O"is part of the"D".
Blue and yellow, represent the color of the sky and the sun rising in the morning. It's in the beginning of our journey.
Who knows, a simple logo can tell you so much story.  Wouldn't you agree?

Jeweler badge for Girl Scouts Parker Troops Colorado



About 20 Juniors from four different troops got together in Parker to work on their “Junior Jeweler” badge. Ms. C from Troop 1996 hosted the event. 



Conny Karman, a self-taught jewelry artist and past troop leader/volunteer lead the event. Armed with safety goggles, a hammer, and pliers, the girls worked on five projects. 



They stamped metal jewelry, caged and wrapped jewelry, learned about birthstones, and made a sparkling box to keep their new jewelry. The event lasted about 2.5 hours. There were 2-3 parent helpers on each session. 

If you are interested in hosting an event, please contact info@ideaitlab.com.
