Fall Update

Now that it’s October, I am beginning to settle into this school year. As always, I’m trying to figure out how to balance school, family & twice-exceptional advocacy and education.

It’s clear that the more I speak to others, the more I need to educate and support 2e learners and those who have been put in charge of their education.

Yesterday, I took a big step in this journey. I co-presented at WAETAG’s conference. This day was focused on educators learning more about gifted & talented learners.

My task was to share my experiences and research and book to educate those educators about 2e learners.

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous. My imposter syndrome was kicking into high gear but…I loved it.

I loved seeing people lift up their phones to take pictures of the slides. I loved seeing heads nodding in acknowledgement when I said something that resonated. I loved answering questions and talking with people who seek answers about these very kids who stay in our heads and our hearts much longer than most.

I found my people. My tribe. I loved it.

This experience was amazing and I can’t wait to do it again!
