Anne Sargent is the GT facilitator for grades 6-12.  She has been involved with GT for 20 years, with this being her first year at MHSD.  She is very busy with 30 6th graders two times a week, 25 7th graders to start GT classes 2nd semester, 40 students at the junior high on Wednesdays during advisory, and 60 identified GT students at the high school who can see her during late start.  Programs she heads at Pinkston are Quiz Bowl and Geography Bee, and a pilot program with the 6th grade class. She explains, “I won the Mountain Home Education Foundation Making It Work in the World grant.  Because of this, 6th grade GT students will be visiting Heifer Ranch as part of the grant. Students will be working with Southern Tag and Label as part of the grant.  We will visit the plant a couple times during the unit of study.”   She offers Quiz Bowl at both the junior and senior high levels, as well as Governor’s School for senior high GT and field trips for both levels.  She and the district are working on finding ways to increase her contact with these levels.  Governor’s School applications will be out around October 1.  When asked what she likes about teaching GT, Mrs. Sargent replied, “I love teaching GT students.  I enjoy the freedom to plan curriculum that interest students and creates opportunities for higher level thinking as well as creative thinking.  I love seeing the spark in their eyes when they figure something new out.  For the most part GT kids love to learn and so do I.  Can’t imagine teaching anything else.”
