ab: Summary: This article is a reflection on the experiences I had designing
and teaching an elementary school enrichment program to gifted students
in mathematics. In particular, I consider not just what I taught the
students in the program but what I learned throughout the entire
process. This article first focuses on a description of the program and
my role within the program. I then describe in detail four of the
lessons I designed and taught for the program. Central to the
description of the lessons are my observations of the studentsâ€™
reactions to the lessons and my own growth as the instructor. The
article concludes with a reflection on my pedagogic practices, the
gifted students in the program, what I learned during the experience
and what I learned after the experience.
