This Oma is moving on

I am always moving, something, or doing something but just always on the move and if you look at Mrs. Flinger, she inherited it rightfully so.

I just finished packing up my classroom, took pictures, and drove away. Since December 2007, I have been a part of a “family” in El Lago at the elementary school. The albatross that has been around my neck for over 20 years, was the certification process in Texas. Now, at long last, I have whipped that bird to the ground. I am at L-O-N-G LAST, certified and not just CEC-4 but decided to take the test for ELL learners too, and am ESL certified AND GT.

Now, I need to decide if I continue to teach the little people, or teach the future teachers for Texas.

This past year, I have been working just over 100 hours a week. Yes, that would be 3 jobs. The problem is that I love what I do. Now…..

I need to work just one job. So WHICH ONE?

Future teachers on the certification track or children; Kindergarten age.

I AM DUN; AS THEY PHONEMICALLY SAY.

  1. That’s a nice problem to have.

  2. I’m a twitter friend of @Mrsflinger. I have two highly gifted kids and I think most teachers are ill-equipped to teach g/t. Our country’s teacher training programs need a substantial component on gifted children as a special needs population. Future teachers need to better understand (and eventually serve) the social and emotional as well as the academic needs of gifted (especially highly and profoundly gifted students).

    Follow your passions, but know G/T teacher training fills a tremendous need.
