Abaroa's Little People

ALP is the Accelerated Learning Program for students who have qualified for gifted services using a state-approved abilities test. Students are serviced according to the gifted attributes in Verbal (ELA) Quantitative (Math) or Nonverbal (Spatial Reasoning). Students are pulled for ELA and Math. Nonverbal students are carefully placed in Cluster Classrooms where the Homeroom Teacher is coached by the ALP Coach to differentiate the needs for this type of learner.

My name is DeeDee Abaroa. I have been teaching since 1981. I graduated from BYU in Elementary Education and a Masters of Curriculum and Instruction from ASU. I have been in Gilbert Schools since 1987. Gifted Education has been my passion for the last sixteen years. I love to work with the uniqueness of the gifted child.
I have four sons and four grandchildren. My husband is also a teacher and we love cultural events in addition to traveling in the global classroom. My goal is to help children love to learn.
