INTRODUCTION


Thirteen years in the classroom, seven years serving as a gifted coordinator, and three years conducting research at the Gifted Education Resource Institute at Purdue University have taught me three great truths. First, all students deserve to learn something new everyday. Second, the artificial ceilings we place on students need to be demolished. Third, bright students need different work, not more of the same. My goal is to help you better meet the needs of the high ability students in your classroom. Feel free to browse my website and explore the services and resources I have to offer. Please contact me with any questions you may have using the "Contact Me" tab at the top of this page. Also, please check out my NAGC award winning curriculum units available for purchase.
