Balloon 250 

As part of our advocacy efforts, we wanted to share the good and negative experiences of gifted children in the classroom.  Drawings and poems quickly and effectively relate our members' and their children's experiences better than any lengthy narrative can.  We hope that gifted advocates will feel free to use the poems and images in their own advocacy efforts.  Please contact us if you are intersted in using any of these submissions.  We would like to receive more of your poems and drawings about being gifted in the classroom.  Click here for more information.
