Teachers who wish to specialize in working with children identified as gifted and talented may want to consider adding the G/T endorsement to their teaching credentials. The all-level (K-12) Gifted and Talented Endorsement may be added to any valid teacher certificate. The Gifted and Talented ExCET, when developed by the state, will be required for certification. Students are required to take the following four courses in any sequence as well as provide documentation of two years of successful teaching experience in a program for gifted and talented students approved by the Texas Education Agency or complete a practicum experience in a gifted and talented classroom.
