• Dear Gifted Students and Parents,


    I am happy to welcome you back to the 2023-24 school year! I am so excited and looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure that our gifted learners continue to soar to their highest potential! I can’t wait to share all the adventures we will be experiencing this school year.


    For those new to the program, I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself and share some key information about our program. This is my second year at Hutchinson Elementary. I am a graduate of the University of Georgia, with a B.A. in Journalism and a Ph.D. in Education from Auburn University. I also hold numerous education certifications. I am an only child, who loves reading, shopping, dogs, football, basketball, and traveling.

    I have a lifelong love for learning which I hope to pass on to your child.

    I am beyond excited to start this new school year with you. I have always been passionate about helping my most advanced students explore the heights of their potential. I will be working with small groups of identified gifted students in grades K-5 and larger groups of talent and development students. They will have opportunities to challenge themselves through interest-driven projects, field trips, and learning experiences that go beyond the scope of their grade-level curriculum.


    As we begin this journey together, I hope that we can be partners in providing the best possible education for your child. I am driven by the overall well-being of my students and will always be their advocate and ally. If you ever have any questions or concerns, or if there is something I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will respond via my school email address (amy.stenson@atlanta.k12.ga.us).


    Let’s have an awesome school year!!
