Gifted students may excel in certain disciplines, but how do we differentiate their learning to address OTHER academic areas as well as their social and emotional needs? What about precocious pupils who haven't been identified as gifted but still need something extra, too? What are the best strategies for meeting the unique needs of talented, high ability, or high potential individuals? How might we mitigate mismatches between their academic needs and the pace and depth of our curriculum? Join us and explore these and other quarrelsome questions in a mirthful medley of cognitive science, research, tools, resources, and pedagogical practices.

Human dignity, mutual respect, meaningful relationships, and learning along the way--that’s what I am about. Part warrior, part peacemaker, jester, gadfly, teacher, and Student of Life, I teach middle school gifted students and help them prepare for their own Hero’s Journey.

I think all of the best things in life begin with kindness. My great passion is sharing this belief with others through meaningful relationships, service, teaching, and learning. Curious? Check out my geo-vitae: https://tinyurl.com/jg4scms19
