Glitch in Teacher Training for Gifted and Talented Learners
from Dr. Suz Speaks
Dr. Suzy Carroll, a college professor, a life coach for gifted and/or creative teenagers and adults, and a Christ-based Counselor in Cedar Park, Texas, writes: "I could feel my blood pressure rise as I read an article this morning from Gifted Child Quarterly about the preconceived beliefs that teachers have toward gifted and talented children. This article was published in January of this year (2012) and clearly statistically demonstrates the need for ALL teachers to be trained in their collegiate educational programs the nature & needs of the gifted and talented child in and out of the classroom. Likewise, these teachers need to have a deeper understanding of the social and emotional needs of their children."
