Sharon Blumberg (Illinois) On the initial day that I introduced the program, the students' eyes widened with looks of interest as I explained that everyone has special talents that are called "Gifts"

Tina Schimanski (Washington) "When Mr. Killingsworth first suggested my trial of the Gifts Project, I was hesitant. I am, after all, a dedicated mathematics and science teacher."

Ginny Hoover (Kansas) "It is always such a pleasure to observe the positive impact of the Gifts Project on my students."

Dan Coughenour (South Carolina) "I think it is so important for students to have the opportunity to recognize their own Special Strengths and to also be cognizant of other students' strengths. This helps to build community in the classroom."

Debbie Scott (California) "Special Strengths is how we get our kids through school. We're all about learning disabilities in children who are very bright but cannot express it in the conventional ways."

Misti Dunlap (Texas) "What an incredible concept you have. I have always had these same thoughts regarding students and their talents and gifts. You have spelled it out completely. I want to take this whole concept and run with it."
