Portfolio 2017-2018

The 2017-2018 school year was a year of many firsts for me. It was my first year at Anser Charter School. It was the first time being a specials teacher. It was the first year I taught STEM as part of a stand alone curriculum in a classroom setting. I was fortunate that I had a great team and was encouraged to expand on the project-based approach that I find so valuable. Anser's Expeditionary Learning model aligns perfectly with my teaching background and professional goals.

My professional goal for the 2017-2018 school year:

    Allow myself the time and flexibility to adjust to the new school culture, expectations, and teaching responsibilities

I knew that after thirteen years as a teacher in public, private and non-profit, I could handle any task chosen or thrown at me. Learning how to function successfully in a new system or to develop and teach new curriculum only requires time and collaboration. I am very happy with this year's goal and I look forward to setting a more focused goal next year dealing with authentic work in the classroom.
