Welcome to Mrs. Wibbelsman's Gifted and Talented Class
Dear Students and Parents,
Thank you for visiting our Gifted and Talented web page. I am thrilled to join the Marlboro Elementary School family as the Gifted and Talented teacher again for my tenth year! Before joining the Marlboro Township Schools Gifted and Talented team, I most recently served as the Gifted and Talented teacher within the Rumson School District. Previous to that placement, I have taught Preschool, Second Grade, and Fifth Grade in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Over the past few years at “Mar El”, I have designed lessons and units to enrich our school. As a group, we circled the globe several times throughout our many days of learning and were enriched by American and foreign cultures along the way. We explored the South American Rainforests, Cinderella variants from 13 different countries, the existence and scientific explanations of the New and Old Wonders of the World as well as 11 enigmas spanning the globe, the inner workings of the human and sheep’s brain, the lives and contributions of 12 inventors and discoverers across 3 centuries AND the great abyss deep into the Twilight Zone! In addition, we participated and won seven international games of hide and seek as we successfully sought out 10 locations around the globe hiding behind their sunrise/sunset times through Learner.org's Mystery Class! As if that wasn’t enough, we dove into literature to explore themes of courage, friendship, and determination through a multitude of trade books, novels, and poems.
I anxiously wait to explore new concepts, investigate new ideas, and create new worlds of inquiry to share with the “Mar El” community again this year!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at any time throughout the year!
