We are excited to announce our first parent workshop of the year! Dr. Michele Kane will be holding a parent session focusing on Understanding the Social-Emotional Needs of Gifted Children. This was an area marked most often by parents on the counseling needs assessment for desired parent sessions! Dr. Kane is an Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the Master of Arts in Gifted Education Program at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. Dr. Kane is also is the President-Elect of the Illinois Association for Gifted Children and the Chair-Elect of the Global Awareness Network of the National Association for Gifted Children. Michele holds a Doctorate in Education from Loyola University Chicago. A major focus of Michele’s work is related to the social/emotional needs of the gifted. Previously, she served as Program Coordinator for Gifted for the Antioch Public Schools in Antioch, Illinois. All parents are encouraged to join us for this wonderful opportunity to learn and share ideas and experiences. This parent session will be held on December 11th from 7:00-8:00 PM in the Lenart auditorium. There will be 8th grade students available to provide babysitting to enable more parents to attend. They will collect donations as a fundraiser for the 8th grade trip! We look forward to seeing you there!
