Lynn uses her classroom to take her gifted and talented students on meaningful educational experiences she calls “adventures.” For instance, during a recent project on Georgia’s Barrier Islands, her students researched the lighthouses on four of the islands, and then compared the history of the lighthouses/islands based on several criteria. One question her students had to consider, “If the lighthouse could talk, what historical stories would it tell?” These types of questions, she says, “help my students become engaged, curious, and responsive.”

Fun Fact: Lynn is part of the Fulton County Vanguard Team where she receives and gives coaching on transformational technology applications in education.
