We have a GT program. Each grade in our district 2-5 has a cluster teacher. We have a GT specialist who puts on staff development days for us cluster teachers to get extra training and ideas 3-4 times during the year. We develop ways to differentiate the curriculum to be at a higher level and more engaging for these students. We also have what is called WIN ( What I Need) time during the day. It’s a half hour of instructional time devoted to the level of our students. This is when I teach higher level reading and do literature circles along with Socratic seminar. We did a session where we looked at the learning styles of students and planned lessons using these ideas.

We have gifted students, but no program in place. We are completing our second year open. There is talk of creating programs K-12, currently they only have honors English in the high school. The building I'm in is K-8 with a lot of IEPs and 504 plans. There are students that are twice exceptional that could be on a WEP as well as their current plan. I'm licensed in K-12 Gifted Intervention and Reading. There are many creative ways to serve these students once an official program is put in place, but then everything has to be reported to the state for their yearly growth. Every state has different rules. Our school mostly just uses honors English with book projects at the high school level.

How do you justify the expense of MBA? Costs $200K+, and on top of that you’re missing out on 2 years of salary. So it basically costs $400-$500K. Why on earth is it worth that much?
