From her website, GiftedGuru.com:

Who is the Gifted Guru?

My real name is Lisa Van Gemert (pronounced “gammert”). I’m an educator by training, and I’m a Giftedland native – I was a gifted student, I’ve raised three gifted kids, and I’ve taught gifted students. The gifted trifecta! I’ve been a teacher, a school administrator, a homeschooling mom, a paralegal, an Army Intelligence Analyst (yep), and a cheerleader. Not in that order.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back, Manor and Hambright students!  I am so happy that I’ve been able to see so many of you.  You’ve grown, you’ve had wonderful, fun-filled summers, and now it’s time to start another year in your education journey.

I have some information for you that is divided by school.  Please read over and email me with any questions.

Hambright:

I sent a letter home with each student on Thursday detailing our schedule for the year, our curriculum, and a permission slip.  Parents – please sign the permission slip as soon as possible and have your child return it to their teacher.  If you need a new copy, let me know.  Classes will be starting next cycle; our first date will be Thursday, September 17th.

Manor:

I am using Google Classroom to communicate with the students.  I have posted questions, a survey and some other items.  If your child hasn’t accepted the invite to the Discover Google Classroom, please have them do so ASAP, and complete the survey.  I am trying to set-up our first meeting of the year with the information the survey provides; we will be talking about Gifted Services this year.

 Description:  If you are the parent of a gifted student, you already know about the joys and challenges of raising your child. This presentation will highlight the social and emotional challenges of gifted students with a focus on secondary-age issues. Gifted students are a diverse group of individuals with considerable strength and resilience but also with unique challenges.  Often these challenges are overlooked or misunderstood, and students’ needs go unmet.   We’ll be talking about ways that you can be supportive to your gifted teen and help them to use their strengths to reach their full potential.
