       When I decided to return to teaching after a long hiatus to raise my children, I chose to pursue certification and a position in gifted education.  Both of my sons were gifted students, and I saw firsthand as a parent the benefits of a gifted education program in meeting their special needs.  Working with our academically gifted students at Mill Creek is a joy and a challenge.  My job surprises and delights me daily.
