I want to thank you for reading and comment on my blog. My intent is to be an active advocate for gifted children. I have been teaching children for over 10 years and for the last several years I have been one of three the Gifted Intervention Specialists for our school district focusing on grades 3-8. The Lima City Schools is an urban district that services around 150-175 children for gifted services. I teach 7th and 8th graders only.

I am interested in teaching and bettering the educational experiences for Gifted children. I hope that you can see that through my blog. If you would like to connect on projects, Skype with your class, or want to guest blog here please contact me below.

Gifted advocates need to stick together.
