Developing as a Professional Educator

         Considering your Initial and Final CSTP Self-Assessment analysis….

  1. My goal at the begining of this journey was to find ways to improve student engagment. I feel that thanks to the resources I was offered I was able to not only better engage my students in the lesson, but I was able to make them advocates who were invested and insterested in their learning. I will continue to grow by finding ways to increase the "Joy Factor" in my classroom.

  2. Beyond induction, I plan on enrolling in and Education Specialist program in the fall.

  3. I will remain a connected educator by staying curious.

  4. I love to exchange information with people that empoweres them to do better. I will strive to learn more everyday so that I can offer information that helps others. 

  5. My reflective coach told me that I was an "inspiration" to her. 

  6. My advice to new teachers entering the profession is: Work hard. Be kind to everyone. And great things will happen.

  1. Edpuzzle - This site allows educators to take streaming videos from Youtube and insert comprehsion quizes and crop the videos. I use them to stream audiobooks.
