This was the professional goals that I set for the previous school year based upon testing scores of the prior year and our school’s improvement plan. I was moved to high school after teaching middle school for several years. As it was my first year, I was not as familiar with the content. This was one of my weaknesses when teaching that I wanted to focus on so that I could better serve my students. I also wanted to focus on using PBIS language since it is a state-initiative. Specifically, I wanted to increase the usage of PBIS language verbally with students. I wanted to focus on this so that it became a habit. I completed these goals satisfactorily.
This is the feedback I received from my administrators on my summative evaluation. Teaching was not my first career choice, but I feel that I am an effective teacher. My biggest strengths are organization and tenacity. I am known at my school for my skills in creating documents and forms in a record-amount of time. I also happen to be an engaging presenter and facilitator.
