My name is Mrs. Kay Walder. I am new to GCISD and to ASPIRE this year. I am excited to join a great district and a school devoted to the GT learner. I identify with GT learners because I am one and I parent three of them. It is an honor and a privilege to join you this year. 

I love building relationships with my students and parents. Please never hesitate to reach out.
