Professional Growth Plan Goals:
You are probably getting tired of reading these goal summaries by now, so I am going to set this one up in a different format (variety makes it less tiring right?). Since I have not met all of my goals yet, I am going to take this opportunity to outline specific steps for myself in order to work towards the professional goals that I have already set.
Steps to Take:
- Make a digital list of social justice resources.
- Start a teacher journal with sections labeled: a) current events/ issues resources and reflections b) lesson reflections (professional development) c) PD opportunities and reflections d) teacher-student relationships and goals
- start participating in education-related twitter chats again and share resources/ valuable tools with the education community on twitter
