Saturday, November 11
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Location: 208 A

Feeling alone in your district, and in the dark? Does anyone really understand what you do? Imagine being included in a network in which people understand your role and provide the support you need in your position. Join us as we share a model of an effective support network for gifted educators that includes professional development for the many different roles that support advanced learners, a wide variety of student programs, and meaningful parent outreach. Being supported will make all the difference for you, your students, and their families.
