Sally Krisel, Director of Innovative and Advanced Programs for Hall County Schools, is beginning her term as the Board President of the National Association for Gifted Children.
“I am honored and humbled by my selection as NAGC’s President,” said Krisel. “For the next two years, my pledge is to use the opportunities I have from that chair to continue to increase availability of high-quality resources to help parents and teachers better understand and guide all gifted and talented children.”
NAGC, founded in 1953, recently committed to a mission to support the growth and development of gifted and talented students by educating teachers, advocating for policies at the federal and state levels, building community, and supporting research on the nature and needs of these students.
“NAGC is in the beginning stages of developing robust on-line learning opportunities to help supporters of gifted children implement effective practices in homes, schools, and communities,” Krisel added. “We are already hard at work producing practical resources to compliment those on the NAGC website and in our publications.”
