Making It Matter: Connecting the Community through GT Content and Curriculum
I've been selected to present at next month's TAGT (Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented) Leadership conference! This is quite an exciting opportunity for me, and I am even more thrilled to be presenting on the impact of parent and community involvement through school content and curriculum. I would sincerely appreciate your honest input regarding your experiences as a parent. If you have a moment, please take an opportunity to provide feedback on this form. Your personal information will not be shared! I intend to use the data collected in preparation for the conference.
If you have a friend in another class, school, district,or state, please feel free to forward the survey link to him/her. The survey is open to all families including those with children not enrolled in GT courses. The more responses I can capture, the more reliable and valid my data becomes.
As always, I appreciate you!
