“Nuts and Bolts of Gifted Education” Conference (with an Emphasis on Technology Integration) is scheduled for Wednesday, April 15, at the OAISD Educational Services Buildingin Holland, MI.  The conference will deliver exactly what’s advertised and that is a primer for all teachers who have gifted students in their classrooms and are struggling to make sure those students are challenged on a daily basis.  Plus, a track for parents on how to create an education plan for your student. With all that’s expected of today’s teacher and parent, developing strategies and techniques for this group of learners often takes a back seat to other challenges clamoring to be met. Registration link
