We ended up discussing how to sequence multiple grade skips, ability linked cohorts, and my idea to start a school, which she was extremely enthusiastic about, and I learned that she has a good understanding of emotional needs of the gifted. She's an older doctor--probably early 70s--so she has the benefit of experience, but she indicated this sort of behavior is not something she's seen.
