AAGC is pleased to announce two monthly podcasts. Have you listened yet?
AAGC Gifted Chat Podcast is a 15-20 minute conversation with leaders in the field of gifted discussing topics important to them. Then after you listen to the podcast, join the conversation on FaceBook at https://www.facebook.com/AAGCGiftedChat. Each Gifted Chat episode will have a separate post on FB with questions to continue the conversation and share ideas and resources.
Think Like a....where we will explore different professions to see what it takes to be successful. We hope you will join us each month to listen to a conversation with a professional in a career. We will learn what skills are required to be successful and education requirements, and what you really do in this career.

Gifted advocacy takes a year-round effort. We made great strides this last legislative year but we are far from the much needed funds to make full-funding a reality. Share what is happening in your classroom on all your social media outlets. Reach out to your elected officials. Until gifted education is fully funded, we will still strive for that goal! Go here, to find out what you can do!
