What would make a dedicated public school teacher decide to homeschool her own children? In her new book, “Educating Your Gifted Child: How One Public School Teacher Embraced Homeschooling,” Celi Trépanier shares her journey from a top teacher in traditional schools to a disillusioned parent struggling to get an appropriate and challenging education for her gifted sons. How is the current educational system failing our gifted and twice-exceptional students? How can parents fight for the education their children need and deserve? What options do parents and their gifted children have? Celi addresses these concerns and more in “Educating Your Gifted Child.”
Celi Trepanier has a vast and varied background in education. She received her B.S. from Loyola University in New Orleans and her M.Ed. from the University of Louisiana, Lafayette, then taught in Louisiana, Ontario. and Alabama, in public schools, private schools, and homeschool co-ops. Celi became a passionate advocate for gifted children after tiring of her family's painful battles with traditional schools and the misunderstanding and neglect of gifted students. Through adversity came her passion, her strength, and her voice. She advocates for the educational, emotional, and social needs of all gifted children, and her dream is for schools and society to one day understand the truths about giftedness in children. Her writing centers on her advocacy for gifted children and her own journey with her three gifted sons. Her emotional and sometimes pointed posts can be found on her website, Crushing Tall Poppies (crushingtallpoppies.com)."

Great read with very valuable information. The author does a wonderful job using her personal lessons (mistakes included) to give advice. As a future educator, it gives a wonderful perspective of all parties involved in the education of children and I hope to remember this book when I begin my career. Although I do not have any children of my own, this read has helped me better understand the man that I am currently in a relationship with who is gifted. This is a quick but powerful read.
I'm so glad she did

Some families know they are going to homeschool before they have children. More families begin homeschooling because of a lack of viable alternatives. I can't imagine the mental gymnastics an award winning public school teacher had to do to justify her decision to homeschool her child. I'm so glad she did, and that she's willing to share her story with us. Great book, full of empathy and wisdom.

So spot on. Celi practically wrote my daily thoughts of my struggles as I attempted to advocate for my child. Alas, I also took the homeschooling path and am celebrating everyday now and following her blog.
An invaluable resource for gifted/2e homeschooling families

My interest in Celi’s book is personal and professional. I’m a person with twice-exceptionality (2e), a parent homeschooling a 3rd-grader, and a researcher studying parenting stress in parents of children with 2e. Few books appeal to all three of these interests like this one did, which is why I'm moved to write a review. It’s heartening to witness the progress being made by advocates like Celi, who work tirelessly to share their wisdom, insight, and hope into areas that are stigmatized and misunderstood. With this release, the Gifted Homeschoolers Forum Press continues to provide incredible resources for parents and professionals. Studying parenting stress, I've learned the value of any resource that can help parents feel less alone AND offer practical tools to create change. In "Educating Your Gifted Child: How One Public School Teacher Embraced Homeschooling," Celi uses her experiences as an educator and parent to connect with readers emotionally while sharing well-researched, relevant information. Parents need to know that there are options for children that aren't thriving (or worse, being harmed) in traditional school settings. I wish this book had been available when we first started homeschooling our son, and I look forward to sharing it with parents and professionals involved in the gifted/2e populations. Excellent work!
