"Expecting all children the same age to learn from the same material is like expecting all children the same size to wear the same size clothing".

My wife and I are currently reside in St. Paul with our four wonderful children (Owen, Lilyana, Colin and Jayda).  I attended Augsburg College for my undergraduate studies and Hamline College for graduate school. I have been a teacher for the past seventeen consecutive years. Six of those years were at Mays International, which promotes internationalism.

My hobbies/interest include running marathons, reading, snowboarding, traveling and spending time with family and friends (and dog)!.   


How is giftedness defined?

“Children and youth with outstanding talent who perform or show the potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment.”
– US Department of Education, 1993


 Parenting for High Potential is the magazine designed for parents who want to make a difference in their children's lives, who want to develop their children's gifts and talents, and their potential to the fullest.

Connecting for High Potential sheds light on how the "other side" might face the issue.
