Amanda Champany believes that that there is a place for traditional knowledge in gifted education. The current western, middle class ideal of intelligence, emphasizing linguistic abilities, limits the diversity within gifted programs. This limits society’s ability to access and enhance culturally specify intelligence, which bring about creative solutions to future problems. By building an ideal gifted classroom, we can begin to build ideal schools that honor the contributions of all students.
Amanda Champany has lived in the border towns of Northern New Mexico, the Bay Area, Denver, England and South Korea and has enjoyed experiencing the traditions of each location.
