“Giftedness is not what you do or how hard you work. It is who you are. You think differently. You experience life intensely. You care about injustice. You seek meaning. You appreciate and strive for the exquisite. You are painfully sensitive. You are extremely complex. You cherish integrity. Your truth-telling has gotten you in trouble. Should 98% of the population find you odd, seek the company of those who love you just the way you are. You are not broken. You do not need to be fixed. You are utterly fascinating. Trust yourself!”

  14. Just wanted to let you know that your blog inspired my blog post for today...by the way, I am the proud owner of a GT kiddo of my own, and a teacher of a GT cluster this year. Today I posted a "Five on Friday" post about incorporating more opportunities for creativity in the classroom. Thanks for the inspiration!

  20. I found your linky party through Mr. Hughes' Share the Wealth. Love linkies, so I joined in on the fun.

    G/T is a passion of mine. I've created gifted and enrichment programs in 2 districts and taught grad students about G/T. I'm always thrilled to find another G/T teacher. We are a rather small tribe. I'm your newest follower and will be heading over to your TpT store to check out your resources.

    Happy New Year!

I have been teaching for over 22 years, and like you have taught grad classes and created curriculum for multiple grades. Keeping gifted students working to their potential is my passion!

    1. Sarah! I love "usingmyteachervoice" what a great name. I am always told by my hubby not to use my teacher voice on him! I hope you are having a wonderful winter holiday...it's still snowing here in Toronto...I guess that is why they call it the Great White North...but right now I could use some sunshine! Happy New Year! Come back and visit often!
