  1. VALARIE – SOCORRO ISD (verified owner)

    Excellent information provided. It helped me develop a greater understanding of the needs gifted students have that are way too often overlooked.

  2. Michelle – BEAUMONT ISD (verified owner)

    It was excellent.

  3. Chad – LUBBOCK ISD (verified owner)

    Gifted education is still researching the same topics. There are some parts that need updates (Texas State Plan for GT, for example) but overall, very informative.

  4. Allison – SPRING BRANCH ISD (verified owner)

    Liked flexibility of being able to complete at my own pace.

  5. Stephen – CARROLL ISD (verified owner)


  6. Jasmine – Brazosport ISD (verified owner)

    It’s a great course, but I just have to find the time to complete it while being uninterrupted to pay close attention to the details.
