Are you ready for it? giftED2023 is here! 
So… How are you going to make the most out of this experience? 
Join Andi and Brian as they reveal their personal strategies for fully embracing this year’s theme of Connecting Minds. Empowering Futures. Together we will analyze how the sights, the sounds, and the “feels” of real connection can be transformative for you as participants and for your learners when you get back home. 
giftED 2023 has the potential to result in not only new connections but also in new relationships that will unite us together in the common goal of promoting excellence in serving gifted learners.
