Success Isn’t Always a Straight Line
featuring Ian Byrd of

Preparing gifted students socially and emotionally for a different version of the road to success

SAGE is thrilled to welcome Ian Byrd as our speaker on April 22!

Ian is a popular GT consultant and speaker. How popular? True story: His session at TAGT was so over-packed with eager teachers and parents that the fire marshal was called.

Ian’s passions are GT teaching strategies and social and emotional support for gifted students. He creates teaching materials and videos. Check out

Ian says, “We like to simplify success into a linear, step-by-step series of events like: get good grades, go to a good school, get a good job. But what happens when our students run into a road bump? How do they respond to inevitable failures, tough teachers, or difficult decisions? We’ll discuss how to get kids comfortable with a different version of the road to success.”
