My name is Jeff Stamper and I am excited to be serving as the Gifted and Talented Coordinator. I grew up in Wolfe County where I was a 1997 graduate of Wolfe County High School. I graduated from Morehead State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in teaching. I then graduated from Union College with 2 Masters’ Degrees, and I am currently attending the University of Kentucky, where I will graduate with an Ed.D in doctoral studies of Educational Leadership.
Gifted and Talented (G/T) students are those identified by professional qualified persons who perform at, or show the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment. These are students who require differentiated educational programs and/or services beyond those normally provided by the regular school program in order to realize their contribution to self and society. Students who qualify for the program will be capable of high performance capability in academic, intellectual, creative, and/or artistic areas.
Wolfe County Schools are committed to provide a program that serves the high achieving student and meets their needs. Advanced skills will be introduced through traditional subject areas through inquiry, problem-based learning, acceleration, and classroom differentiation.
