I am currently attending Arizona State University, where I am getting my master's degree in Gifted Education: Curriculum and Instruction. I am the mother of seven children, all of whom fall somewhere on the gifted/talented spectrum. Parenting a gifted child is difficult, and oftentimes these unique struggles and challenges are met with disdain, disagreement, or intolerance from others. Here are a few posts I've written, targeting some of the challenges faced by gifted kids and the parents who love them.

A series of five posts that focus on gifted education:
