NYC Gifted and Talented Program and Testing


NYC Schools Start Tomorrow! Goodbye Summer, Hello Chelsea Prep PS 33!

Well, the summer has flown by as we head into another G&T year here in New York City!  We went up to PS 33 Chelsea Prep yesterday to drop off some supplies for our daughter’s gifted and talented teacher this year – the incredible Mrs. Alycia Zimmeran! Our daughter is so blessed to have Mrs. Zimmerman for another year. Our daughter had Mrs. Zimmerman in first grade and now she’ll have her again for the third grade!  Not sure if the public education system in New York City, no I mean Amercia, gets any better than this! Mrs. Zimmerman explempies what it means to be a dedicated, accountable, and enthusiastic teacher. I can’t say enough great things about her and her use of technology in the classrom which includes updates on her web site.

The NYC department of education did provide a brief update the new G&T handbooks which will now be available in early October,  according to the DOE web site.  There are MANY changes expected to come into play for the New York City gifted and talented program.  Make sure you go to TestingMom.com and get free practice questions for the OLSAT test and the NNAT test  – it will come sooner than you think! It’s never too early to start preparing your talented tot!

Keep me posted on how the first week of schools go, especially to all the G&T parents across all the 5 boroughs!
