Welcome!

Welcome to The Mysterious Gifted Society Blog!  I am so glad that you stopped by!

I am starting this blog for several reasons.  First of all, as a Gifted Specialist, I feel that I have a responsibility to advocate for our brightest students.  They often spend their school days listening to information that they already know or being used as a tutor for remediation for other children.  But what we all really know is that EVERY child has the right to learn, even the gifted children.

But what we also know is that teachers have SO much to do every day, and that it is incredibly difficult to meet the needs of all of these children.  In this case, sometimes it seems impossible to focus our attention on those children who most likely are going to score in the 95th percentile on "the test".  Don't we need to "save" those struggling kids?

Of course we do.  However, we can't neglect those potential high-achievers.  I hope to provide insight, information, and ideas for parents and teachers to educate, support, and inspire these amazing students so that they can reach their true potential--the STARS!
