Mrs.Lilbit's Message:

You need to check with your state dept. of ed and find out what the requirements are in your state to be g/t certified and highly qualified. Some states just require you to take the gifted ed praxis, some require a certain number of hours of course work. If you are currently teaching, find out who the director of the g/t program is in your district, contact them, and ask them how to get your foot in the door. Good luck!

GT endorsement on your license.

It depends on the district, though. I got my first GT job (gifted 5th classroom) after teaching sci and math I a catholic middle school for a few years. They saw this as a plus, because I knew the content and had STEM background. Then, I had a regular classroom for a long time, until finally this year, I have another GT position in a different county.

For those of you who are G/T specialists, I had an internship in a gifted and talented classroom two years ago.

I know its unrealistic to be placed in a G/T classroom right off the jump into a career, but whats the best way to get into this? I've always been curious and I would love to get into this type of teaching
