What sort of special training is required for CBG staff members?
The dedicated and skilled teachers are truly an asset to the program. Many of the teachers hold Master’s degrees in Curriculum and Instruction or specific content areas. A large percentage of our staff currently holds, or is presently working toward, endorsement in gifted education. This endorsement requires successful completion of graduate level courses in Characteristics and Identification of Gifted Learners, Instructional Strategies, Curriculum Development, Affective Needs of Gifted Learners and Contemporary Issues in Gifted Education. skills are continuously developed and enhanced at team meetings, conferences, workshops and summer training sessions. The administrators at the CBG middle school sites are certainly an asset. They are knowledgeable about, and supportive of, gifted education and are true advocates for the CBG Program.
