Carla Van Devander, Director, Program for the Exceptionally Gifted. Transitioning your gifted teen to college.
PEG is a highly selective program for gifted girls age 13 to 16 in the MBU College for Women. Highly motivated 16 and 17 year olds of either gender who are ready for college, but may not be a perfect fit for PEG, should check out our Early College program.
Carla Van Devander has been teaching in the MBU College of Education since 2012, including offering coursework on instructional differentiation and exceptionalities. Prior to her full-time role at MBU, Carla served as a differentiation specialist for Staunton City Schools, with her recent experience there focused on gifted and academically motivated adolescents. Active in the community, she is the co-creator and coordinator of Opportunity is Knocking, an award-winning event that brings together local colleges, industry, and the school system to provide families with important college, skilled trade, and career information.
Carla holds a BA degree in history from George Mason University, her teaching credential from Mary Baldwin, and the MEd in Curriculum and Instruction and Instructional Strategies from Eastern Mennonite University. In addition to serving as director of PEG, Carla is a faculty member in the College of Education and coordinator for the Education Leaders Learning Collective.
