Welcome to Rochester SAGE!

March 12, 2012

We just had over three hundred new subscribers join Rochester SAGE – Supporting Advanced & Gifted Education’s blog and Facebook page.

I wanted to thank all of you who read, shared, commented, or reblogged some of my posts.  I was pleasantly astounded when my phone buzzed with notifications for three days straight!

Rochester SAGE is a group of parents in Rochester and Rochester Hills, Michigan advocating for gifted education in Rochester Community Schools.  My name is Joshua Raymond and I am the founder and lead advocate.  I also author most of these blog posts, with occasional contributions by other members of Rochester SAGE.

My usual topic is gifted education.  I try to keep current with gifted education news, programs, philosophies, myths, objections, and issues and then pass the information along to inform and help your advocacy for gifted learners.  I’ve covered a number of topics, but if you have an idea on something I should write on, please leave a comment or contact me.  Or write about it and let me know, so I can reblog it or include it in my monthly Spotlight on Giftedness.

Other posts are centered on Michigan’s Rochester Community Schools specifically.  These may not be of interest to my readers from other cities, states, and countries, but are an important part of my mission to increase options for gifted students in our local schools and to ensure that RCS always strives for the best education for all children.

You may not find every post aimed at you, but I hope you will join the dialogue as we draw attention to the needs of gifted learners.

Thank you for reading Rochester SAGE!  Together we can make a difference for gifted students!

    Our school has no money for GATE opportunities, but some energetic parents. You asked for topic suggestions….I am interested in models of GATE enrichment that are pareent volunteer and afterschool-based.
