Edward Gonzales Teacher Recognized by NM Gifted Association

Katy Hammel was named Teacher of the Year for making an enormous difference to her students and school.

Katy Hammel of Edward Gonzales Elementary was named Teacher of the Year by the New Mexico Association for the Gifted during the organization’s annual conference earlier this month.

Hammel was nominated by other association members for her amazing contributions and service to gifted students and the school community. She was recognized for her student-centered, rigorous and highly challenging curriculum; her philosophy toward teaching that includes community involvement; and her support for after-school programs.

She has helped secure more than $20,000 for after-school programs that provide enrichment opportunities to the school as a whole and encourage students to participate without the label of being gifted.

“She believes that if we provide rich experiences for all, the entire school will lift in achievement,” the applicants wrote.

The NMAG is an affiliate of the national Association for Gifted Children promoting an understanding about gifted students and their education and social emotional needs.
