Who, me? Opinions??

Welcome to my blog!  Wow, that sounds funny to say.  I swore I would not get started blogging.  I mean, do I really need another thing to do with my time?  There's the website, and now the Facebook page, and my family, not in that order, of course.  That's more than enough for a disabled mom to handle.  And who would want to read my posts anyhow?  I don't know the answer to that one, but I guess we'll find out together.

As most of you know, I'm passionate and opinionated about Gifted Education.  And as many of you know, I'm not very skilled at keeping my mouth shut.  What better way is there to share our passion and our opinions than to blog about it?

So here we are together, you and I, writing and reading my first blog post.  I hope that you'll follow me along this journey, and share my passion for "all things gifted."  And I hope that at least a little bit of what I say can help you, your children, your students, your teachers, and our world to be a better place for our gifted children and the amazing adults they grow up to become!  And the adults WE grow up to become!  (Imposter syndrome is a subject we'll definitely discuss here.)

Welcome to Hoagies' Nibbles and Bits, a blog about... well, about whatever I'm feeling passionate about at the moment. Mostly, that's likely to be about gifted children, and gifted education, and gifted parenting. Once in a while, I'm sure there will be posts on other subjects, too. Feel free to comment on my posts; I would love to know what you're thinking, and what you think of my opinions. Let's take this journey together!

  1. Hi Carolyn K.:

    I'm utterly excited that you of all people - THE Queen of All Things Gifted and Collaborative - have decided to join the Blogosphere! How fortunate WE are to have someone like YOU willing to share even more of yourself, your sage thoughts, ideas and experiences. Lucky us - and all the gifted and talented learners - who will benefit as a result! You're posts are bound to be shared throughout the world. Congrats!

    Warmest regards,
    Deborah Mersino

  2. I'm so utterly thrilled to have found this blog!!! My name is Rita, and I'm the mother of a gifted Kindergartener. Colin has only been in school for three months, and we've already run into problems (for starters, his school doesn't even HAVE a gifted education program). I myself was in a TAG program from Kindergarten through my senior year of high school, so you'd think I'd have some knowledge of what to do for my son - but I find myself feeling utterly clueless and often wondering where to turn. Hoagies' Gifted Education page has been a FABULOUS resource so far, and being a blogger myself, I was so excited to find that you'd started a blog. Count me in as a loyal reader! Colin and I are going to need your help! :)

  3. Carolyn, SO glad you've decided to dive into blogging! :) The more voices out there for gifted ed the better...and you're one of THE BEST!
