Gifted and Talented Education(GATE) at Hackler consists of identified gifted students attending a Gifted Education Resource Room for a minimum of 150 minutes per week. Gifted children are as different from each other as they are from other children, and they benefit greatly by being grouped together homogeneously at times in order for them to work at the level of their abilities and in their area of interest. Instruction in the gifted resource room is delivered by a licensed teacher of the gifted, Marsha Partney. Mrs. Partney also work swith the faculty in the building as a consultant teacher to help design differentiated activities to meet gifted students’ needs in the regular classroom.
