It is a great turn out this morning for the arduous but necessary work of collaboration in order to update the TAM for gifted education in New Mexico. Thank you to all physically present at NMHU Rio Rancho Center (pictured below), traveling from as far as Clovis and Farmington, and to those virtually present, signing on from Bloomfield, Gadsden, and Las Cruces.

Statewide Collaboration

The meeting began at 9 AM and all weighed in on the excellent draft revision of the Identification Chapter presented by Geoffrey Moon, of Santa Fe Public Schools. We then discussed the IEP Chapter work presented by Kelly Thomas Coyle and Valerie Hobbs of Grants.
