    Fire, light and wind from my students during these stressful and long years have enabled me to stay in this profession as long as I have. Even though our educational system tends to be so structured, I’ve been blessed with the intuition to let my students’ passion burn brightly while lifting my tired wings with their cool gusts of energizing wind as they take off with their learning. I’m so glad that I finally had the chance to come to this kind of training to prepare myself with the tools to better serve my kids. Now I feel empowered to keep going

    This article and this whole week have helped me realize what giftedness truly looks like. Can you just imagine what society could be like if we spent as much energy on empowering our gifted population as we spend on other parts of the population. Wow!!!!! It has helped me realize what I need to do with my own kids to help them realize their full potential as gifted persons

    This is exactly describing the light in the eyes when the kids get a “gotcha” look. The wind, fire, and light is a beautiful analogy, now I want to look up the whole song and hear it. I am a firm believer in Gardner’s MI and many of the things you have shared helps me to understand that at a whole other level. We must find some sort of giftedness in each child even if they are not GT but a GT kid need to be allowed to soar with that natural fire, light, and wind. What a blessing they can be to our culture, society and humanity as a whole.
