Taliah Gipson Headshot

Taliah Gipson

Taliah's career began as an elementary teacher in Nevada and Texas where I taught for 10 years. Teaching is a calling and her way of giving back to our communities. Throughout her 10 years in the classroom, she worked with third and fourth-grade students in all content areas. These areas included science, social studies, math, reading, and language arts. Her experience includes being a departmentalized teacher as well as self­ contained. I have been a grade ­level lead, mentor teacher, tutoring supervisor, club leader, PTO secretary, and also runner­ up for campus teacher of the year. For the last three years, she has worked as a teacher specialist, on an elementary campus, with teachers from early childhood to 4th grade. One of Taliah's missions has been to close gaps through aligned Tier I instruction, cooperative learning groups, and small group instruction. As a teacher specialist, she worked to train educators on research ­based instructional practices and collaborated with teachers, campus, and district leaders to analyze data, set, and accomplish goals. These trainings and professional development opportunities were district and campus ­wide. During that time, I lead professional development sessions on various topics including Aggressive Monitoring, Instructional Alignment, Cooperative Learning, Kagan structures, Math Mondays, CHAMPS, and more. I also facilitated PLC meetings and worked as campus testing coordinator for MAP growth, district­ level, and campus ­level assessments. Taliah developed a student­ work analysis protocol and system for reviewing data.
