Student in GEMS gifted education program
  • GEMS at Andrew Jackson


    My name is Edie Barnett, and I am a gifted educator in the Jackson-Madison County School System. This is my 19th year teaching and my 10th year in the gifted department. I am a product of gifted education, and I have a great passion for these students and their unique needs. Gifted and talented students and those with high abilities need gifted education programs that will challenge them in regular classroom settings and enrichment/accelerated programs to enable them to make continuous progress in school. My job is to cultivate, lead and inspire world-class, innovative thinkers and expert communicators through a challenging, meaningful and engaging curriculum.
