The school year is well and truly in full swing in Australia and I have to admit I envy our US colleagues who possess the vitality and infinite possibilities that come with the beginning of the school year.
At the beginning of the year I renew one of my most important tools for my personal professional development – my goals list.
My goals vary depending on my needs, which are influenced by curriculum, educational studies, the needs of learners and my personal interests.
I am going to let you in on my little ritual and I have linked my goals list here: Goals 2014, so you all can see what it currently looks like. In the interest of confidentiality I have removed some information.
Please keep in mind that the goals is a working document, therefore it is not a refined piece of work – rather a place for my own brief reflections and to make sure that I am working towards being a better teacher.
