We are so fortunate to announce that Dr. James DeLisle will be our keynote speaker and will lead breakout sessions designed for teachers and parents throughout the day.    Dr. DeLisle is well known in the education community as a specialist in working with gifted learners and those who work on their behalf for more than 39 years.  He is an author of more than 250 articles and 19 books.  One of his latest books is "Dumbing Down America, The War on Our Nation's Brightest Young Minds (and what we can do to fight back)".  That theme will be his keynote address on April 26.
