Troxclair assists gifted children associations

Debra Troxclair, assistant professor of curriculum and instruction at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, recently attended the University Network Meeting for the National Association for Gifted Children in Arlington, Va.

Troxclair praised the NAGC’s work. “This was an opportunity to provide service to a professional organization. NAGC is our nation’s ‘heart and soul’ of gifted education.

At the NAGC University Network Meeting, topics of discussion included development of advanced teacher accreditation standards in the field of gifted education, the Higher Education Opportunity Act and its “opportunity” for impacting the education of gifted children in the regular classroom, and the NCATE/NACG Reviewer training program.
