NAGC conference in Denver. This is a gathering place for everyone whose books
you’ve read or research you’ve cited, making it a fun place for “star-gazers” like me.
Here's a brief list of some of the experiences I learned from this year:
• Thinking Like … A Master Teacher with Sandra Kaplan
• Gardner, Renzulli, and Sternberg: In Their Own Voices in Our Time
• Creativity is a Decision (Robert Sternberg)
• Bright Not Broken: Maximizing 2e Minds (Temple Grandin)
• The State of Education Going Forward (Deb Delisle, Asst Sec, US DoE)
• Sharing an elevator with Julia Roberts
• Plus casual conversations with the likes of Marcia Gentry, Sylvia Rimm,
Jim Webb, Ann Robinson, Judy Galbraith, Jim Delisle, Nick Colangelo,
Diane Heacox, Rich Cash, Karen Rogers.
Fellow WATG board members Pam Clinkenbeard, Scott Peters, Seth Sondag and I
attended the NAGC State Affiliates Breakfast. Although 7 a.m. is not my favorite
time of day, I loved waking up to the energy of colleagues from across the nation
who share our passion for gifted education.
You can find out more about the info shared with the Affiliates:
• Unlocking Emergent Talent: Supporting High Achievement of Low-
Income, High-Ability students
• NAGC Leadership Initiatives:
Special thanks to you our WATG members for making my attendance at this
conference a possibility. I trust I represented you well.
