    Hello! My name is Tracy Carlucci and I am excited to be your child's Second Grade Teacher here at Knox Gifted Academy! I am looking forward to a year filled with lots of creative thinking and inspired learning. It is most important that children are having fun and are happy coming to school everyday! I am looking forward to getting to know your child and what inspires them to be their authentic self.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, where I participated in gifted education programs most of my life. I had amazingly passionate teachers who inspired me to develop a true understanding of the power of education. 

    I moved to Arizona in 1996 and have been teaching and/or counseling for the last 28 years. Educationally, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology from Stony Brook University and Graduate Degrees in School Counseling and Gifted Education from St. John's University in New York. 

    I have two children of my own. My son, Giovanni, is a graduate of the University of Advancing Technology and works in the field of Cybersecurity. My daughter, Joie, is a social media blogger who loves to interact with as many interesting people as possible. 

    My Educational Philosophy

    My philosophy of teaching is a simple one. I refer to it as OTI: Observe, Think, Innovate. I hope to pass this idea onto my students as they develop the skills necessary to become critical listeners, focused scholars, and innovative problem-solvers. 

    Social-emotional learning is a critical part of the educational success for gifted children and will be a major focus for the second grade team this year. The KGA Knights "RISE" program will integrate Relationships, Imagination, Safety, and Empowerment to ensure that students are reaching their fullest potential.
