Gifted & Talented

Hi. I am Lisa Fox.  I am fortunate to be the GATE (Gifted And Talented Education) facilitator at Boyd. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and am currently earning an endorsement in Gifted Education.   I meet with students weekly for specialized instruction that includes language arts, math, problem solving, and creative projects that incorporate the district’s GATE framework.  Students engage in high-level thinking, focus on development of social/emotional skills, and participate in enrichment learning activities.  We have fun challenging ourselves and working together to grow and learn.  When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my 3 children. Please contact me anytime.
