Professional Knowledge and Skills

Teachers should demonstrate professional demeanor and ethical behavior at all times. In addition to this, I have had the chance to effectively reflect on my lessons in order to enhance my teaching and student learning, as demonstrated by the post reflection sections in my lesson plans. As a future social studies teacher, I attended the annual NCSS conference this year to continue working on my professional development. This was a particularly good experience in terms of learning from a variety of educators from across the country.
