From page A3 | March 24, 2013 |

Barbara Branch, incoming executive director of the California Association for the Gifted, will speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Pioneer Elementary School multipurpose room, 5215 Hamel St. in Davis. Her talk is titled, “You Can’t Fit a Square Peg Into a Round Hole: Helping High-Potential Students.”

Branch is an educational consultant who helps school districts develop their education programs for students with high academic potential. She has 35 years of experience as a teacher of such students, a principal of a school with a gifted program and director of the gifted program.

Branch will focus on the unique needs of high-potential students during their primary education years and how best to meet those needs. A question-and-answer session will follow her presentation.

CAG is an organization dedicated to meeting the academic and social-emotional needs of students based upon sound evidence. CAG believes that every child deserves an appropriate education.

Branch’s talk is particularly relevant as the Davis Joint Unified School District’s master plan for the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program is undergoing review. The event is open to all interested individuals and is sponsored by Davis Excel (www.davisexcel.org), Davis New Star Chinese School (www.newstar.davis.ca.us) and Vanar Sena Pathshala (www.davisvsp.com).
