This is a story of a gifted teacher and how she impacts her students and their community in post World War II Alaska. Fredrika (Fred), a young girl living in rural Alaska, narrates this story. Fred describes how life in Athabasca changes after a new teacher, Miss Agnes, comes to their school. Fred had experienced a series of teachers who did not understand the local culture and customs.  Miss Agnes is different. She genuinely cares about the children as individuals and makes what they are learning relevant to their lives. Miss Agnes uses innovative teaching methods to engage all of the children in their studies. She even learns sign language to help a deaf student! The students gain confidence in their abilities and become passionate learners.

COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

The Center for Gifted Education (CFGE) is a research and development center providing services to educators, policy makers, graduate students, researchers, and parents in support of the needs of gifted and talented individuals.

Located in Williamsburg, Virginia, the CFGE has established an international reputation for excellence in research, curriculum development, and service. Several major grants, including funding from the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act, have provided significant support for the work of the Center. In 2012, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation awarded CFGE the funds needed for a summer residential camp for low income, high-ability children, for four consecutive years. In 2015, William & Mary alumni, Mike and Nancy Petters, through the Petters Family Foundation, provided additional financial support to the program. In 2016, the Petters Family Foundation has committed to  fully fund the program for the next four years. Camp Launch is only the beginning of the Center for Gifted Education’s goal to bring educational equality to all gifted students.
