I hear Bertie Kingore, the more convinced
I am that she has a special gift for
making her work friendly for use by all
educators. Teachers in the regular
classroom as well as gifted education
professionals love her presentation and
approach. She inspires confidence in those
who need support in their work to
customize levels of instruction, she backs
up her writing with authentic and current
research, and she incorportaes
reproducible materials in a clear and
effective manner. She is a
Educator of gifted children for forty
"I am so
excited! You have truly given me a new
lease on life. To go back and face the
staff with your materials will be
exhilarating! We have needs that will now
be met because of your [Dr. Bertie
Kingore's] thoughtful insight and
generous wisdom. You will be blessed by
the countless number of children you have
saved. Thank you for a terrific two days!
I can't wait for the next day we'll spend
with you. You'll always be welcome Back
Home Again in Indiana."
to Dr. Kingore's state-wide training on
for the Indiana Department of
teacher, principal, and supervisor in a
rural school division in Virginia, I can
attest to the value of Bertie Kingore's
teaching materials. After my initial
session with Bertie, I began to say,
"Bertie says..." After many sessions
through the years, my ability to teach, to
lead, and to supervise has been enhanced
by Bertie's messages.
Bertie, for retaining the essence of a
classroom teacher and thank you for being
a 'master teacher' to us all."
to say a huge THANK YOU for such a
fantastic two days at Saint Mark's School!
My third grade students are going to
benefit greatly from me being a part of
paper chains on Friday on a whim... since
they took OH so much time to prepare...
hahaha... I tried it! I never knew there
were so many ways to write the number 18.
I saw so many brains become active! I had
a bounce in my step all day
again, thank you for being such an
inspiration to us al!

Her presentation style is accessible,
humorous, realistic, and encompasses a
range of grade-levels. Her books and other
resources are valuable tools for classroom
