Like many districts, my district is focusing on generating SGO's for all of their teachers.
I however do not fit the general guidelines of an elementary teacher (although that is what my contract states).
I am the coordinator of the gifted and talented program in my district. Not only am I responsible for 500+ students in five different buildings but I also head a curriculum committee (five meetings each year), prepare and monitor a department budget of $25000, arrange 20 different field trips including all paperwork, etc., prepare over 25 different subjects/activities over the course of the academic year, present workshops for both parents and teachers (four of these workshops are held in the evening), prepare and present all identification information for over 300 students each year, attend inter-district meetings as the representative for our district, etc. etc.
In essence I have many of the responsibilites of a supervisor except for teacher observations. I do all of that and teach - a matter of fact, I am the only teacher in my department. I teach in five different buildings - I have no classroom. I teach in hallways, balcony lobbies, and cafeterias. There is no technology in any of my teaching areas. And, btw, my classes are large (when considering gifted and talented classes) - an average of 18 -20 students in each.
I am not sure where or how to approach the SGO's - I am concerned that I will be evaluated like a classroom teacher although so much of my job requires supervisory duties as well. The teaching area is about 50% of my job responsibilities while the supervisory duties are the remaining 50%.
Any suggestions where I can go to get info on SGO's for gifted and talented education? I really need some guidance so I can approach this intelligently and create SGO's that are the most effective and beneficial for my situation.
