Professional Goals for the 2011-2012 School Year

Leave a comment

Last week I sat down with my supervising principals and together we set my professional goals for the 2011-2012 school year.

I have two goals that I will be focusing on this year:

1. Assessment in the MYP

I have already fired up the OCC website and the ECIS PE conference 2011 website, all in an effort to use resources that are already out there for creating engaging and meaningful MYP units and assessments.

I am also hoping that by using Facebook as a class management tool I will be able to come up with some creative and exciting assessments using current and relevant media.

2. Conference Leadership

I am attending two conferences this year, a PE in the PYP conference, and the annual ECIS PE conference.

I hope to be a leader in my department, by bringing back and sharing what I learn with my colleagues after the PYP conference.  I will try to come up with a unique way to present what I’ve learned without taking up too much of my colleague’s time, (or boring him to death).

The ECIS PE conference is my real professional development.  We hosted the conference last year and it was an incredible experience.  I felt like a real leader in the International PE community while hosting and while presenting.  I plan to present again at this year’s conference.
I’m really looking forward to seeing what I can accomplish this year.
