Why you became interested in gifted education?  Why do you teach, advocate, support teachers of gifted students?
Necessity is the mother of invention. When we first moved to our small town, a program for gifted students did not yet exist. I volunteered working with the students and teachers, helping in any way I could. Eventually, we had a program and years after that, I became the Coordinator. All students should be able to receive the education they need. One that meets them where they are and helps them grow, academically, socially, and emotionally. My students guide my practice, inspiring me and pushing me to give my best for them every day.
