“Giftedness is not what you do or how hard you work. It is who you are. You think differently. You experience life intensely. You care about injustice. You seek meaning. You appreciate and strive for the exquisite. You are painfully sensitive. You are extremely complex. You cherish integrity. Your truth-telling has gotten you in trouble. Should 98% of the population find you odd, seek the company of those who love you just the way you are. You are not broken. You do not need to be fixed. You are utterly fascinating. Trust yourself!”

A little BONUS! MORE15!


I have to say I am loathe to think about back to school.  I am going into my 25th year as an educator and I still LOVE my job, but I also LOVE my summer vacation.  Now, that being said, I have started to think about school.  How can I not?  I am seeing ads on T.V. and in the paper and the stores are starting to fill with school supplies.  Many of my teacher friends in the southern U.S. states have already gone back to class.

To help ease the transition back to thinking about school, Teachers Pay Teachers is having a little BONUS sale on Wednesday, August 19th.  I still think that is EARLY for us up here in the True North, but I know many teachers are getting in gear.  You can save up to 28% on all your purchases.  Make sure you use code MORE15 at checkout! This is the BEST time to get all the things on your wish-list!
