INTASC #9: Reflection and Professional Development

INTASC Principle #9: The teacher is a reflective practitioner who continually evaluates the effects of his/her choices and actions on others (students, parents, and other professionals in the learning community) and who actively seeks out opportunities to grow professionally.

INTASC #9 Interpretation: I understand that as a professional my job is not one of static limitations. I will constantly grow as a person so therefore my views will too. My learning will never end, it is an ongoing process that not only helps me be the best teacher I can be, but also helps my students see and understand that their teacher is always seeking new ways to do things or learn. I plan to attend classes and seminars that will help me to reach my full potential in this wonderful field that I have chosen. Being able to attend professional development classes I can learn valuable information as to how to relate better with my students and their parents, as well as reflect or reevaluate how to teach in a more productive way to achieve success in my classroom.

I have attended two different Professional Development workshops at Texas Woman’s University and decided to put my last reflection of the workshop here because I feel it is so important for teachers (old and new) to attend as many workshops as possible. I feel that getting ideas from other professionals in my field only helps to improve me as a future teacher. I realize learning is a never ending process but being able to get ideas and new ways of how to manage my day with students, parents, faculty, lesson planning, etc can only help me to be as productive as I can be.
