The KGTC Conference and mentorship program was extremely beneficial for me as a new member of the gifted teaching community. I believe it is important in our profession to surround yourself with people who have experience in similar situations, and this gave me an opportunity to meet some incredible gifted facilitators who were open to sharing ideas, and who truly want me to succeed as a gifted teacher. I HIGHLY recommend the mentorship program for any teachers who may be new to gifted, as it will open your eyes to a world of ideas and practices that will make you a much better teacher!
The KGTC mentorship program has been a great opportunity for me to network with other Gifted and Talented teachers. Being new to this field, it's helped immensely with making sure I'm providing the best services possible for my students. The KGTC Conference offered outstanding resources and sessions that immediately impacted my classes. They say if you can take one thing away from a conference and use it, it's a success. I was able to take away much more!
