Administrative Assistant




Christine Hull, Director of Advanced Learning and Gifted Programs


On behalf of the Division of Teaching and Learning, I am proud to serve as the Director of St. Elmo and of Advanced Learning Programs district-wide, K-12. Here at St. Elmo we host around 800 students a week from 30 different elementary schools for five hours each week day.  Our faculty members and three regional gifted facilitators are all officially gifted endorsed and trained to properly identify and serve our gifted and talented population through authentic engagement and enrichment in rigorous academic coursework, real-world problem-solving, and creative play.  We are all committed to finding and developing the talent that we know we have throughout the Muscogee County School District.  We follow the NAGC and Georgia Department of Education standards for gifted education as well as expanding upon the standards of the curriculum that our students receive in their home schools.  We partner with our students’ parents and teachers to ensure that every gifted child’s needs are met academically, socially, and emotionally here at the center, in their home school, and at home.  I am committed to the growth and success of all of our gifted and talented children, and I am passionate about identifying and properly serving those who may not yet have been found.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the center, and we will provide a positive and productive way to help.

Best Regards,

Christine W. Hull, Director
