Artifact: Submit evidence of reflection on your individual teaching abilities. Include a minimum of (2) two artifacts: evaluation feedback, your own reflections, e-portfolio links, professional growth plans, recommendation letters, stakeholder feedback and anything else that showcases introspection into strengths and weaknesses as an online educator and document all in your individual blog.
At this time, I am not an online educator so I am providing artifacts from my classroom teaching experience.
This document is from my self assessment portion of my yearly evaluation. I feel that I excel in areas of professionalism and subject knowledge. With a focus on communication, I felt that I could improve from where I was they year before. It is easy to spend time communicating with students and parents when there is a negative issue, but we forget how important it is to communicate with the positive issues as well.
The artifact is the section from my annual evaluation.
What are your teaching strengths?
I feel that my best teaching strength is my content knowledge. I teach public safety and have spent nearly 20 years as a police officer. I have had valuable opportunities to learn and attend classes that takes years to acquire.
What are your teaching weaknesses?
I feel that learning the online delivery is my biggest weakness. Having not taught online before defiantly makes this the area that I can improve the most on.
Provide a reflection on your teaching abilities, philosophy and how Evaluate has prepared you to teach online.
I have really enjoyed this lesson. I have learned and relearned many things about the evaluation process and how evaluation is an integral part of the education system. I have always been an advocate of using data to direct the lesson. I feel this entire module has better prepared me to plan, deliver and conduct assessments.
My name is Kris Martinez and I blog about learning public safety.
