The Teacher’s Corner
Convention is in the air
With the convention just a few months away, I thought it best to focus on this most important resource. If you are as excited about St. Louis as I am, then you will surely want to plan ahead. The convention provides a chance to become informed about everything the field has to offer while networking with other educators from around the country. Perhaps with summer in full swing you might take some time to visit NAGC’s convention pages. There is surely a lot to navigate through!
I suggest you visit the schedule at a glance and convention content pages. From the opening general session on Thursday to Saturday morning’s keynote, the schedule is full of general sessions and mini keynotes, breakout strands, and evening events. Soon, you will also be able to take a stroll through the virtual exhibit hall.
Best of all, as an NAGC member, you can plan your itinerary on-line. Search through hundreds of sessions grouped by topic area. You can edit, organize, and save your personalized plan for each and every day. Perhaps you want to find out about identification on Friday, curriculum options on Saturday, and assessment on Sunday. The sky’s the limit with this helpful planning tool. There are sessions for every type of educator, whether you are involved in elementary, middle, secondary education.

It is an exciting time to be an educator in the field of Gifted and Talented Education, and it is equally exciting to have the opportunity to attend the annual conference. So when you arrive, pick up your bag and nametag, and take a seat for the Opening General Session, be prepared to leave with new ideas and insights.
