About the Author

Lisa Rivero is a freelance writer, home education parent, college instructor, and life-long learner.

Rivero spent her childhood on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota before moving to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to attend college. She has an M.A. in Literary Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a B.A. from Marquette University. Her professional interests include gifted education, home education, creativity, literature and the humanities, and the challenges faced by all families in this fast-paced and often perplexing 21st-century life.

Rivero�s interest in gifted education began when she started to homeschool her son after second grade.While Rivero knows that home education is not the optimal choice for every gifted child, she believes strongly that learning at home is an important and sometimes lifesaving option for families of gifted children, and it is often the best education for children who have a great passion and drive to learn.

Rivero and her family live in Milwaukee.
