A LITTLE ABOUT ME...
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 eighteen consecutive years. Six of those years were at Mays International, which promotes internationalism.
My hobbies/interest include running, reading, playing the guitar, 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.
