About

I am a Gifted Education Advocate and work with gifted communities throughout the U.S. and worldwide. I worked in education for 12 years before voluntarily leaving at the end of the 2014 school year to pursue other opportunities. I hold a B.A. degree in Sociology.

I began Gifted Parenting Support in March of 2010 to support parents of young gifted children. Today it is read in over 110 countries and its readership includes parents, educators, and academics. Our Facebook Page has over 900 Likes.

Since March of 2012, I have worked for the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented (TAGT) as the moderator of Global #gtchat on Twitter which is  held Fridays at 7 PM ET. An average of 1,200 tweets reaching over 1.5 million Twitter accounts are devoted to this global discussion each week. Under my leadership, the #gtchat community has expanded to include permanent archived transcripts, a Blog and Facebook Page.

Conferences presentations: TAGT 2012, 2013, & 2014 Annual Conferences; Parents Conference; 2013 PAGE Conference; Symposium: 'Gifted Parents as Professionals' 2013 WCGTC Conference; TAGT 2013 Annual Conference. I will be presenting at the TAGT 2015 Annual Conference in December in San Antonio, TX.

My professional memberships include TAGT, PAGE, NAGC, SENG, WCGTC, Gifted Homeschoolers Forum, associate member of IRATDE and Founder Member of GT Voice in the UK. In the fall of 2013, I was named to the NAGC's Parent Editorial and Content Advisory Board (PECAB) through 2015.

Currently, I am available for workshops on social media and parenting gifted children for gifted organization, schools and parent groups.  I may be reached at: ljconrad1111@gmail.com
