AGATE Conference 2014, Billings Mt

I am honored to be a presenter at this year's Association of Gifted and Talented Education (AGATE) conference. Thanks to my affiliation with RESA4U/Southwest Montana School Services I will get to represent Region 4 and LaMotte School at  this state conference. AGATE is one of my favorite conferences in Montana as it is always well attended by like minded educators interested in working with gifted students. Every year national speakers visit Montana to share their expertise and current research in the field. This year I am very excited to hear Bertie Kingore speak. I have used her web resources in my classroom for years and I can not wait to see what she will share! I am also excited to hear Brian Housand speak about the two areas that interest me the most in education, Technology and Gifted Education!  To learn more about the conference click here, http://www.mtagate.org/conference.html.

I will be presenting three sessions at the conference.

Thursday April 3 8:00-9:30 Working With Gifted Students in the Primary Classroom
Here are the resources I will be sharing!

Thursday April 3 1:00-2:30 Tech Savvy Teaching For All
Here are the resources I will be sharing!

Friday April 4 3:00-4:00 SENG Model Parent Groups Support Parents and Gifted Kids
I am co-presenting this session with Wendy Morical, GT Specialist from Bozeman Schools

In addition to presenting I will be able to attend sessions as well. I am looking forward to going to a session about the workshop model and another about how to get an AGATE mini grant. Brian Housand is holding two breakout sessions that I hope to attend to learn more about using gaming in the classroom as well and new technology resources. I most excited to attend "An Evening with the Experts" on Thursday evening at 7:00. This will be a panel discussion with the National presenters! I am taking questions to ask the experts from parents of gifted students at my school.

I look forward to the AGATE conference every year and this year is no exception!
