Over these next two years there are many things I am looking forward to improving in my professional practice. However, a few of my current priorities are:
- Standard 02: Analyze learning to promote student growth-Collaborating with peers to improve my selection, organization and use of data to improve student learning.
- Working to push students in their critical thinking skills and creative skills. For this I would like to learn from colleagues on questioning strategies and specific methodologies used to push students to the next level, while maintaining a student-centered environment.
- Building not only a student-centered environment, but one where students are responsible for and initiate learning.
- Standard 11: Utilize formative and summative assessment in a standards based environment-Improving the quality and consistency of my use of sound formative assessments in my classroom.
