Reflecting on our work is very important for us as educators. This is the basis for understanding data from class and assessing what has worked in the classroom and what didn't. A great way to reflect is to keep a personal blog. This can be beneficial because students, parents, and administration can see what we are working on in class and progress students are making. This type of reflection is something that would be less about personal thoughts and feeling but works to benefit the students. Keeping a personal reflection journal can help you as a teacher keep your thoughts and ideas organized. This semester I have showed growth on reflecting on my lessons. I have worked diligently and thoughtfully to relate my classroom experience to my professional goals. I have shown proficiency in the reflection process.
Element a: Teachers link professional growth to their professional goals.
This artifact is a reflection on the my person teaching dispositions. I identified areas in which I have shown proficiency and linked my goals to my professional success as an educator.
Element b: Teachers are able to respond to a complex, dynamic environment.
This artifact is a reflection from a girls volley ball match I went to at Lincoln Middle School. It is important to get out and attend events in the schools and community we life and work it. Taking ourselves out of the classroom experiencing the schools environment is important to our success as educators
