14 A narrative journey of a profoundly gifted student in mainstream schooling

This research explores a profoundly gifted student, Ruby, narrating her story to produce new knowledge to enhance how teachers engage with profoundly gifted children in education. Through these stories, it is envisaged she will come to understand her experience and share her school experiences with others in a holistic form, which is not 'fractured' by researchers. Stories about profoundly gifted students are not often heard. The researcher attempts to demonstrate that in telling Ruby’s story, there is more than one reality, beyond the beliefs and perspectives of educational professionals.
