When my children were babies, I felt sure that I could never let them out of my sight. As they grew into toddlers, I became anxious about sending them to school. For a time I gave serious consideration to homeschooling them. At first I couldn’t understand why I was so hesitant to send them to school. It was irrational.
Teachers are a HUGE part of a child’s development. For myself, I’ve had many teachers over the years that have helped shaped me into the person I am today.
According to the National Association of Gifted Children (NAGC), “Gifted individuals are those who demonstrate outstanding levels of aptitude or competence in one or more domains.”
Establish a productive relationship with your child’s teacher from day one.
