Location Alabama, Iowa
Introduction Celi Trépanier was born and raised in south Louisiana. She grew up with a strong Cajun French heritage and eventually married a French-Canadian, and they have three unbelievably wonderful sons - yes, she is biased. She now resides in central Iowa with her husband and youngest son. Celi has a vast and varied background in education. She received her BS from Loyola University in New Orleans and her MEd from the University of Louisiana Lafayette. She has taught in Louisiana, Ontario and Alabama, in public schools, private schools and in homeschool co-ops. She became a passionate advocate for gifted children after tiring of her battles with schools and their misunderstanding and neglect of gifted students. She has completed work on her first book, "Educating Your Gifted Child: How One Public School Teacher Embraced Homeschooling", due out March 2015.
