As a result of our second session, I believe Ireland is going to have a new #gifted leader – Ms. Catherine Riordan (@CathRiordan). Watch out as she works to grow a following and support for high-potential students throughout her country!

If you’re new to #gtchat and/or wondering how to participate, simply look at some of the earlier posts about our inaugural chat sessions. We would love to have you join us, as we work to dispel myths about gifted children and their needs!

Many of you commented last week that you liked the choices offered in our last Twtpoll. As such, I’m including past choices in this week’s poll. The new Twtpoll is up with the following topics:

  • Exploring the Role of the Gifted & Talented Teacher
  • Examining Our Own Giftedness: Why it’s Vital
  • Investigating Mentorship Programs for All Ages
  • Celebrating & Supporting Our Visual-Spatial Learners
  • Finding Age-appropriate Literature for Gifted Students
