Perfection and the 21st Century Learner


GREENSBORO, April 14, 2014 – Guilford County PAGE (Partners for the Advancement of Gifted Education) is hosting a free event open to the public on May 1, 2014, at NC A&T State University on perfectionism and the gifted learner.

The event is a program entitled “Great Expectations: Perfection and the 21st Century Learner” and will feature guest speaker Dr. Miriam Adderholdt, an education expert and award-winning author of Perfectionism: What’s Bad About Being Too Good? Additionally, a panel of students from the STEM Early College at NC A&T State University will participate in discussion following Adderholdt’s presentation.
