About The Event
Join SENG Director Dr. Sylvia Bagley as she hosts Mark Hess - Author, SENG Director, and CAGT President.
Yes, you were gifted. You still are. There is no used to be in any definition. Giftedness does not run out; it doesn’t have a border; giftedness is a way of being. All of your life you have been thinking things other people did not typically think about, making connections others did not easily make, feeling the world more intensely than others. To you, it just seemed normal . . . because the only head you could see inside of was your own. Have you or your kids ever missed out on achallenge because you were surfing a wave of wonderfulness? Fallen victim to bomb cyclone perfectionism? Tried to win the award for “best normal?” Apologized for doing well? Do you need to slow down, stop feeling so much, stop caring somuch? Do you still feel, speak, and express a poetry of the world that is beautiful and abundant?Join me for a chat about gifted kids, teaching gifted kids, gifted parenting, and ultimately ourselves.
