Kelly Hirt is a public school teacher, homeschooling parent, blogger, and writer of both fiction and nonfiction works. She has taught elementary school for twenty-five years in Washington State. During that time she has had the pleasure to serve as a student teacher mentor, district level trainer, and an active member during leadership teams and curriculum adoption reviews. Kelly became a reluctant homeschooling parent and activist after the traditional public school system to which she dedicated her professional life failed her twice-exceptional son. She started her blog, My Twice Baked Potato (MyTwiceBakedPotato.com), to educate parents and connect with other families who found themselves parenting a twice-exceptional child. Kelly lives near Seattle and enjoys writing, watching movies, going for walks with her family, and playing various video games with her tech-savvy son.

As a teacher, I feel like my plate is already overflowing with to-dos. Reading yet another book sometimes just feels like too much. The beauty of this book is that it was written by an educator who clearly understands how precious our time is and has structured the book in chapters that are 6-pages (or fewer), succinct, and accessible. There is no fluff you need to “get through to get to the good stuff.” It’s all good stuff. I have underlined more than one takeaway in literally every chapter of this book. (I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the quotes at the beginning and end of each chapter.)
So many of her recommendations within the Boost Strategies have actually required very low effort on my part and have already paid huge dividends. The changes I’m making are mostly shifts in my thinking, approach, and perspective. One aha moment I had was about eye contact. A strategy she presents is to sit or stand side-by-side with a student when communicating instead of face-to-face or hold a shared object together. I tried out that technique the very next day with a student and was able carry on a full conversation about making positive choices. In the past, this particular student would regularly shut down and mentally escape similar conversations. After realizing that making eye contact with this student may be causing anxiety, I just had to make this one simple shift in my approach to achieve the desired outcome. Boost is overflowing with doable strategies just like these. They really work.
I'm so grateful that this book was recommended to me. It has changed my teaching. Boost is a gift to all educators and one that I will definitely read again and again.
Being that the author is a public school teacher and parent to a 2E child she is able to offer information from both sides of the table. I appreciate that she chose to stay curious with the asynchronous traits of this facet of giftedness, recognize that a different approach was not only needed but mandatory in order to effectively reach (not teach) these children.
When you discover that you have a 2E child and realize that you have to burn the typical 'how to' parenting books, all of them, this is the best book to start your journey. Even the cover art is relatable.
I would be interested in more books from this author.
I loved how I could connect with the author because she is an educator and she seems to have a lot of experience working with twice-exceptional students. Many times, I found myself reading education books that are written by researchers, psychologists, or professors (who are all very credible), but it is very evident that this author/teacher/parent understands the difficulties that educators go through and explains her ideas in specific ways that we can help our students.
I also love how this book is designed. It is a quick, easy, and hits on the main points without all the frills. I was able to quickly identify the main points of each step and apply them in my teaching. I also love the inspiring quotes on each chapter!
I would highly recommend this book to all educators because it really helps teachers work with students who are often misunderstood. When we understand more about our students, we are able to build better relationships with them and it allows us to create a healthy learning environment where all students can succeed.
Well, here’s the magic bullet, the holy grail—the book you’ve been waiting for! This book is a treasure-trove of suggestions, advice, information, knowledge, help and support that you will return to time and again—for both teachers and parents. Boost: 12 Effective Ways to Lift Up Our Twice-Exceptional Children can unravel the misunderstandings while providing definitive, effective and invaluable solutions to provide our 2e children with the support and nurturing they need to also live better lives, fulfill their potential and become happy, well-adjusted adults.
1.) It's easily digestible & can be transferred quickly into use in the classroom.
2.) Even if you're not a teacher, you WILL learn something from this book.
3.) It makes you think deeply & compassionately, and it will inspire you.
4.) This list could literally go on forever...
Who am I?
I'm a second-year (fresh meat) 5th grade teacher in the same district as Kelly Hirt. And bonus points -- "Ms. Hirt" was my fabulous 1st grade teacher. I have so many fond memories of her from 1st grade, and now we are colleagues. I am lucky to be alongside such an inspiring teacher.
10/10 would recommend for everyone who loves to learn.
