The Gifted Journey!


Personal Experiences

I have learned more about the many facets of gifted. I was aware and thought I was doing a very good job with academic gifted but realized through this class there is so much more. From the risk factors to the spiritually gifted, I have opened my eyes to many more characteristics of gifted that I need to be more aware of.

My experiences working with the gifted and their families have all been positive. I try my best to look at the situation from the parents persepective. Parents send us their best children! They are their pride and joy. They only want what is best for their child. I think of my gifted children as ones that need challenged just as much as my special needs children need support. I make sure that I have a plan for my gifted and share that with them and their parents. It is a working doccument between all three parties.

No Child Left Behind, leaves behind the gifted!
