SoulSpark was invited to present on Growing Changemakers. 

“This, then, is the great humanistic and historical task of the oppressed:to liberate themselves and their oppressors as well.”

~ Paulo Freire

Many schools are not designed or equipped to be responsive to the way gifted children experience the world and, therefore, to a certain degree oppress them. The paradoxical strength in gifted children’s sensitivities is a source of powerthat can transform unjust systems; however, these same sensitivities rendergifted children particularly vulnerable. All will leave with resources and practicesthat inspire innovation, support student empowerment and promote healthy community development along the change maker journey
