It is my honor to be the new President of the National Association for Gifted Children for 2015 through 2017. NAGC is a very rich community of parents, teachers, administrators, counselors, psychologists, university personnel, and researchers. We not only serve this community, but they also serve our organization and our gifted children and youth through their commitment and passion.
I have been honored to serve and to work on behalf of gifted children for more than 30 years. I consider this not merely a profession, but also a calling.

Receiving the NAGC Javits-Frasier Scholarship helped confirm for me the importance of looking at a child’s strengths while taking his or her experience and environment into consideration. Attending the NAGC Convention opened my eyes to the great need for gifted advocates, and I met incredible leaders in the field. I learned that diversity in abilities and cultures can be rewarding and should be celebrated as my students demonstrated this year.
