Someone Gets Me Podcast

Gifted Learners with Mark Hess

September 10, 2019

Welcome friends to the Someone Gets Me podcast. I am your host Dianne Allen and I am delighted you are here. This podcast was created because I believe there is a visionary leader inside each one of us who is waiting to be seen. In each episode of Someone Gets Me you will hear useful tips from successful Visionaries who will share their stories about how being seen allowed them to take their Vision into Action.

 

In this episode, I interview Mark Hess, a Gifted Programs Specialist in Colorado Springs School District 11 and is in his 32nd year of doing what he loves best—working with gifted kids.  He is the president of the Pikes Peak Association for Gifted Students and board member for the Colorado Association for Gifted and Talented. 

 

Topics we discuss include:

  • Mark’s love and connection to his calling
  • Asking Safe Questions
  • Hope for the Future
  • Acceptance
  • Listening as an action
