S1, E6: Kristina Collins: Shaping the Future Through Leadership, Volunteerism, and Collaboration
Join us as we talk with Dr. Kristina Collins, President of SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted) about her many roles in the world of gifted education and support. We’ll hear the latest news from SENG, with a look to the future. We’ll talk about the common threads Dr. Collins sees in her work with various organizations, and how she brings these organizations together in a common cause of supporting gifted people throughout the lifespan. We’ll also discuss her work as a passionate advocate for culturally and racially diverse learners, and ask her for some timely advice on being actively, rather than passively, anti-racist. We’re excited to find out what is going on in the world of gifted education and social/emotional support from the perspective of someone who is helping to shape a brighter future for gifted learners.
