As a new HiCap teacher, I find WAETAG extremely valuable. I've learned how to increase depth and complexity in my lessons and other helpful strategies to support gifted learners in my classroom.
WAETAG helps prepare teachers, curriculum directors, administration, etc. how to teach highly capable and gifted students and their diverse needs.
I felt at home, as I told one of my students today, "I found my people."
WAETAG is where I come to connect, share my passion for teaching and learning, and get inspired by so many amazing professionals...
WEATAG is a great place to be exposed to a broad range of topics that will help classroom teachers, coordinators and administrators better serve the HiCap community.
WAETAG provides quality professional development from the beginner to the advanced HiCap teacher
I've connected with so many like-minded people who just want to do right by our students. I feel like my human resource toolbelt is filled with colleagues who I am now connected to when I used to feel so alone!
I have returned to my classroom inspired and renewed in my love of all things teaching thanks to WAETAG!
A great opportunity to learn from peers about successful ways to support the needs of our gifted students!
If you need ideas to transform your class from boring to engaging, WAETAG is the place to be!
