    I'm seriously considering giving up my world of utopia and moving to an itinerant G.t. position.

    The part of the state I'm living in now is going belly-up. Real estate values county wide are declining and there's hundreds of houses for sale. I really hate to move at the point in my life and career but we don't want to retire here. I'm still in an excellent neighborhood and think I can sell my house quickly (I hope).

    I've interviewed in the NW part of the state for a better paying job and the position is K-4 G.T.

    How does the G.T. teacher in your school work?

    Anyone have any experiences or advice?

    My school is a K-8, so it is probably a bit different. We do not have a full-time G.T. teacher. I am paid extra duty responsibility to manage our state compliance for G.T. I do a lot of work with training and implementation of differentiation into the classrooms. I also set up community people to come in and provide enrichment learning for these students. When I have space I also offer the classes for our higher level students who are not formally identified. I essentially act as a resource teacher. I also try to know the various curriculums taught to help identify, set-up, support staff with differentiating.

    I hope this helped you a bit.
