Caitlin Carlson


2019 "Pass the Torch" Scholarship Finalist

Gifted Education teacher, Mrs. Diane McGilloway, challenged her class to work hard and not be held back by limiting beliefs about themselves. Now, Caitlin Carlson wants to carry this legacy forward, creating inspiring, interdisciplinary lessons where students understand the purpose of what they are taught and use this knowledge to discover the vast potential each of them holds.

Here is Caitlin's story about Mrs. McGilloway, the teacher who inspired her.
