With Special Guest Speaker Teresa Argo Boatman

Thursday, October 10, 2019

6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Century High School Forum

RSVP HERE (You do not need to be a member to attend)

Rochester GATEway invites you to join us for an informative evening! Parenting gifted children is an exciting, challenging, and exhausting experience. During this presentation, we will discuss giftedness, the issues that make raising these children so challenging and interesting, and strategies to assist you in guiding your child(ren). Time will be provided after the presentation for you to network with other parents in attendance and gain additional knowledge with parents who are in the same situation.

Our guest speaker, Teresa Argo Boatman, is a psychologist working in Plymouth, MN. She specializes in working with gifted children and their families and completes assessments as well as provides therapy through a gifted lens. Dr. Boatman is also the current president of MCGT and works to advance the understanding of the needs of gifted children in Minnesota and nationally.

This is a free event and you do not need to be a member of GATEway to attend.  However, for our planning purposes, please register by clicking on the RSVP link above. Child care for school age children will be provided for – but only for – families who register and request child care by October 7th.  To allow parents to focus on the speaker, we would appreciate it if you would make other child care arrangements for younger children.

The evening will start at 6:30pm in the Forum at Century High School. We invite your family to join us for a dessert potluck and social time.  You may bring a dessert or healthy snack to share.  Additional desserts along with drinks, plates, silverware, and napkins will be provided by GATEway.  At 7:00pm, school age children will move to the Media Center for supervised games and activities while the adults stay in the Forum for the hour-long presentation.

Century High School is located at 2525 Viola Rd NE. The parking lot and main door are on the south side of the building. The Forum is down the hall to the left once you enter the building. Please contact pres@rochestergateway.com with any questions about the event.
