• Welcome students, parents and colleagues!




    Thank you for visiting the Focus website for Anthony Burns Elementary. Focus is the gifted education program at ABES. I meet with identified gifted students weekly, and when we return to face to face learning sponsor several enrichment activities for higher learners at ABES. I also provide resources to assist classroom teachers with enrichment and differentiation.  I am delighted to be able to work with students and teachers to make learning enjoyable, and respectfuly challenging.
