Hi Karen. I hope you had a nice holiday. Just wanted to give you a 'heads up'. You wrote a while ago on my blog asking me to comment on gifted and talented education options. It has been a challenge because there are no set guidelines - they vary across and even within states, cities and school districts.
I hope what I wrote addresses your needs and concerns. Please let me know.
In the meantime, I wish you a very happy, healthy, successful 2011.
I loved this blog post. When I had a real (as opposed to a virtual) classroom, every week my students would have to collect their favorite sentence of the week. Your blog reminded me of that --- the power of the word!

I hope you visit and leave your own ideas/comments/experiences - I greatly value them.
It has been a while since I connected with you (or anyone - been very busy) and hope all is well. I look forward to visiting again soon.
