  • Gifted/Talented Employment Opportunities in Kentucky – KAGE has created a webpage to list employment opportunities for G/T educators. It would be helpful to have one place that districts could post positions, and that those looking for a new position could see what employment is available around the state. Check this site out here:  http://kagegifted.org/gt-jobs/  and send in those job openings.

  • KAGE Conference 2019 –  The KAGE Conference 2019 was held February 225-26 in Lexington and was a great success.  Over 250 educators, administrators, parents, exhibitors, and others participated in two days of sharing, learning, and networking.  Many conference presenters graciously agreed to share their presentation materials (available on the members-only page HERE).
