As an educator, I believe it is important to continue growing and learning throughout my entire career. There are always new theories and strategies and practices we can learn about and implement in our classroom in order to provide the best instruction possible. Here are a few ways I plan to continue learning and implement leadership:
- I plan on getting my Masters in Education over the first several years I am teaching. I can't wait to learn about some more strategies to use in my classroom, as well as how to connect better with my students.
- I would like to take a variety of PD courses over my years of teaching, from courses centered around philosophies like the Growth Mindset to courses focused on learning new technologies.
- I would like to eventually take on a leadership position within my school, such as grade-level leader. I believe that my continuing education, as described above, will help be achieve this goal and be a better leader for my grade level.
