Emily Berrong Gifted and Talented Teacher

GT Lead Teacher

I serve as the GT Lead Teacher here at JB Little. My focus is to provide Gifted and Talented services for our students as well as collaborating with their teachers. I administer the Gifted and Talented testing process as well. I serve as the UIL Coordinator and the Spelling Bee Coordinator. This will be my 2nd year at Little Elementary and my 8th year in AISD. Prior to my role as the GT Lead Teacher, I taught First Grade for 6 years at Lynn Hale Elementary in Arlington. I am an Arlington native and graduated from Arlington High School in 2005! Kick ‘Em Colts! I attended to Bailey Jr. High, Hill Elementary and Crow Elementary. I stayed close to home and attended college at the University of Texas at Arlington where I received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2009. My husband and I have been married for 4 years and we live here in Arlington with our sweet dog!
