Hello!  My name is Karen Bonham.  I am the gifted facilitator for grades K – 5 (Tonganoxie) and K - 7 (Basehor Linwood) for the Tonganoxie Basehor Linwood Special Education Cooperative.  I serve students from Tonganoxie Elementary School, Genesis Christian Academy, Basehor Elementary School, Basehor Intermediate School, Glenwood Ridge Elementary School, Linwood Elementary School, and Basehor Linwood Middle School.  I enjoy supporting students as they develop their talents through challenging and engaging learning experiences and the pursuit of their individual interests.
I hold a bachelor of science degree in elementary education, a master’s of arts degree in curriculum and instruction, and have a special education gifted endorsement.

During the last five summers I have traveled to twenty-six different countries in Europe.  I find seeing historic sites fascinating and love to learn about different places.  I believe experiencing the world around us fosters a better understanding and respect for others.  I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to do this traveling with my mom. 
Should you wish to contact me, the best method would be email since I will be commuting between schools daily.  My email address is kbonham@tong464.org.  My Tonganoxie Elementary School phone number is (913) 416-1480, ext. 4091.
