PICKING UP THE PIECES: Making Lemonade Out of the Lemon that was 2020
Update! Brian said it is perfectly wonderful to have your students join in the conversation! Hurry and register if you have not!
Well, 2020 happened. It felt like the world as we knew came crashing down and smashed into a million little pieces. And now, in 2021 we are picking up those pieces and trying to make sense of a new normal. But how do we move forward? Do we rebuild things in exactly the same way? Or do we use this as our opportunity to reinvent ourselves and the way that we do things. In this session for parents, teachers, and gifted kids, we will examine some strategies that we can all utilize to develop a creative and productive path forward to a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.
