Growth & Development Goals
- After two years of job embedded support, I feel I’ve been successful at setting, revising, and achieving goals! The experience has allowed me to grow as a person and as an educator, an in turn has been rewarding. At the start of the program, I set out to increase the use of materials, resources, and technologies that extend student understanding of concepts and principles of physical activity, health, and biomechanics.
- According to my final CTSP survey, CTSP 6 was my highest strength: Developing as a Professional Educator. A close second was CTSP 3: Understanding and Organizing Subject Matter for Student Learning. I was glad to see these two at the top of the list, as they reflect my goals well!
- Beyond this program, I intend to continue my growth as an educator and as an individual. In the classroom, I’d like to continue, expanding my use of differentiation techniques, developing relatable, meaningful, and useful curriculum, and growing relationships within all aspects of the profession. Outside of the classroom, I’d like to expand my knowledge and remain connected by attending trainings, conferences and pursuing my master’s degree in Kinesiology and in Education. Determination, resilience, positivity, and mindfulness are what keep me going!
