Hello! I am the teacher and coordinator of gifted programs for Madeira City Schools. This is my 17th year working as a teacher and coordinator of gifted programs for Madeira, and I feel blessed to be a part of the wonderful school community in Madeira.

 

This is my 30th year of teaching. During my teaching career, I have taught all grade levels as well as all types of learners across the educational spectrum. My B.S.Ed. (special education) and M.Ed. (gifted education) degrees are from Ohio University and my doctorate is from The Ohio State University with specializations in elementary education, children's literature, and multicultural education. 

After school hours, I teach courses at the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University. I have been teaching part-time at the college level for 20 years. I am involved with my church as well as professional organizations throughout the city, state, and nation.

 

My favorite hobbies are traveling and reading. My husband and I love to play golf, ride bicycles, and travel all over the world. We have visited all 50 states (not just passing through - actual visits) and 33 countries on 5 continents. Plus, we love exploring national parks. We have visited 19 of the 64 national parks.

If you would like to contact me, please e-mail me at:
talley@madeiracityschools.org or call me at 513-985-6080 ext. 4106.

"The surest path to high self-esteem is to be successful at something you perceived would be difficult. Each time we steal our students' struggle by insisting they do work that is too easy for them, we steal their opportunity to have an esteem-building experience. Unless kids are consistently engaged in challenging work, they will lose their motivation to work hard."
-Dr. Sylvia Rimm, author and gifted counselor


"We must educate our children in what no one knew yesterday and prepare our schools for what no one knows yet."
-Margaret Mead, anthropologist
 
"The surest way to make it hard on children is to make it easy for them."
- Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the US
 
"The most important thing is to read as much as you can like I did. It will give you an understanding of what makes good writing, and it will enlarge your vocabulary."
- J.K. Rowling, author of Harry Potter series
