GT LEAD Program Teacher 
Learning Experiences for Academic Discovery


Greetings! I am Ms. Kristina Callaway, the Gifted Lead Teacher at Silver Lake Elementary School. 

I moved to Grapevine from Key West, Florida this summer and spent the past few months playing 'tourist' in the DFW area. I am proud to be a new Texan and am grateful to have so many interesting and exciting resources in our community available to us. My education career began in 1996 and each year reveals to me innovative and inspirational ways to create learning experiences for students. 

I earned a bachelor's degree in Art History & Criticism from Florida State University, a master's degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina, a master's degree in Public Administration from the College of Charleston, and a master's degree in Gifted Education from Converse College. 

I created a gifted classroom shopping list on amazon and invite you to scan what I believe we need to enrich our curriculum. This list will evolve as I get to know our students and their interests and areas of need. Check in, check out, and check often! 

Thank you for your support and I look forward to working with our students and community.
