Superintendent's Honor Roll

Terry Bradley, Fairview High School TAG Advisor - SENG Honor Roll Recipient
Received the SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted) Honor Roll recognition for demonstrated commitment to serving the needs of gifted children

The SENG Honor Roll is a prestigious national award. Following are excerpts from Boulder Valley Gifted and Talented’s nomination narrative of Terry's exemplary actions benefiting gifted students in BVSD:
Terry began conducting TAG student discussion groups to meet the affective needs of gifted students at Platt Middle School in 2000. In 2005, Terry began providing these affective groups at Fairview HS and continues to do so today. Terry created a syllabus and curriculum in 2010, Creating and Facilitating Discussion Groups for Gifted Students, that includes not only the foundations and management of such a group to help facilitators be most effective, but also guides and resources for discussion group topics such as Understanding Giftedness, Perceptions of Self, Relationships, Achievement/Underachievement, Risk Taking and Transitioning. She has taken her expertise gained from years of conducting these groups to present at state and national conferences. She offers trainings using the curriculum she created for other districts and schools increasing capacity and ensuring that many more gifted students benefit – not only those enrolled at her school.
In 2007, Terry helped to establish the advocacy group Boulder Valley Gifted and Talented (BVGT), a local affiliate of the statewide Colorado Association for Gifted and Talented (CAGT). During her 6-year term as BVGT President, Terry worked as part of a team of dedicated volunteers hosting expert speakers who have presented on a variety of topics aimed at supporting parents, educators, and gifted students themselves to increase awareness and understanding of the nature and needs of gifted individuals. Terry's involvement with BVGT has led to her current leadership position as President-Elect of CAGT (Colorado Association for Gifted and Talented), allowing her impact to be even more far-reaching.
