HAL - Mrs. Miller
Welcome to the High Ability Learners (HAL) classroom!
I graduated from UNO with a Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education and an emphasis in teaching intermediate grades. In 2011, I completed my Master of Arts in Gifted Education from UNK. I have been at St. Vincent de Paul School for the past 12 years. During my first 3 years at SVdP I taught 6th grade. Then in 2008, I became the High Ability Learners Strategist.
The HAL program provides specialized classes for students that meet certain academic criteria in math and reading/literature. This setting provides students interaction with academic peers and the development of higher order thinking skills. The HAL program is designed to be fluid, allowing students to move between the regular classroom or the HAL classroom as their learning needs change. The academic needs of each grade level dictate the particular design and size of each grade level's program and student placement is evaluated every quarter.
