New Year – Gifted and Science

This year I will be teaching Gifted and Science (K-2) at my school.  I am a little nervous.  Gifted in England was not a separate class…so I’m not worried about the differentiation.  I’m just wondering how I will be working with the children as an out of classroom teacher.

I can’t wait to meet the students I’ll be working with!

This will be a first for me.  Starting Monday I will have about 2 weeks until I start and then another week until the students arrive.

I am so curious as to what this year will be like!

I need to start setting goals:

Finish reading the Gifted handbook for our county.
Review the standards for science K-2
Go into school and meet with principal to see how my schedule will be and find out which students I will be working with.
Send out a note to the students introducing myself.
Develop a professional development plan and include the courses I will need to work on for my Gifted Endorsement.
Look up good webpages and blogs and link them here so I’ll have an easy resource.
Consider completing my MA.
