  • Gifted learners are not tests scores. They are not perfect. They are not easier to teach. They are kids. With different learning needs. Who will give up if they are not challenged. Who rarely get a place in educational laws. Who sometimes give up and drop out of school. Who are waiting for a change. Who now sit hoping, wishing, to learn. To grow. To think. To climb out of the box. To change the world. To get something different. Not because they are privileged, elite or want “better.” But because they want the one thing that every kid, in every school, in the world deserves. To learn and grow. –Krissy Venosdale
