Laura Beeghly

I am the Gifted and Talented Facilitator at Ponca, Harrison, and Belvedere. I have been teaching elementary students for 15 years. I have a B.S. in Elementary Education from Elizabethtown College and an endorsement in Gifted and Talented Education from the University of Iowa.

Most identified GATE students have a scheduled one-hour class once a week. Specialized GATE instruction follows a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating all aspects of the humanities (literature, art, philosophy, history, etc) as well as high-level STEM content and skills.
