The SENG Community Group for Educators of the Gifted provides a platform for educators of gifted and talented students to convene virtually and discuss the unique challenges they face in their classrooms. This group offers a supportive environment where participants can exchange resources and seek guidance. Led by two experienced facilitators, the meetings ensure that discussions are both secure and confidential, fostering a space for constructive dialogue.
