How Am I Using My Own Understanding and Development of Gifts and Talents to Promote the Learning of Children?
Gifted Education International, v32 n1 p26-38 Jan 2016
My enquiry, which formed the subject of my Master's module on gifts and talents in education in 2008, was part of my journey as a classroom teacher during a pressured year when the Office for Standards in Education (UK) gave our school "notice to improve." I specifically write "our school" as this is what the children called it and I feel the same loyalty and pride to call it this too. At the time I had been teaching Early Years in this English primary school for 8 years and I had a true sense of belonging and passion towards the children and staff, and the teaching that happened there. My journey is not exclusive and it is a journey followed and shared with the children in my class. The narrative is as relevant now as it was then for teachers wanting to develop gifts and talents to promote learning in their classrooms.
