Student Led Learning, Homeschooling and Giftedness

Just when I thought the road we are traveling along was amazing, it becomes more amazing and with deeper meaning.  I was struggling with how Madison could meet friends that she truly identified with. And don’t get me wrong, she has amazing friends. But…
