Today is World Teachers' Day and we would like to take the opportunity to thank all the wonderful teachers who take care of our children each day. Particularly to those who take the time to show that they understand the needs of gifted children in their classrooms. We appreciate how difficult a task it is to manage and teach a group of up to thirty children of widely ranging abilities and learning needs. Despite the myths, gifted students are not always model students or high achievers. They can be downright exasperating at times! The teacher who shows understanding and appreciation of a student's particular strengths, weaknesses and quirks, can transform their school experience. These teachers will be long and fondly remembered by our children. Thank you so much.
