Self-Development is a constant assessment of myself as a teacher. After each lesson, I will take notes on student performance and assess whether or not there needs to be a change in my presentation of the lesson. If many of my students are not understanding the concept, then I need to take a close look at myself and what I need to change to reach those students.
Teaching is a lifelong learning commitment. As a teacher, I will never profess to know everything. I will be learning from my students each day I am in the classroom. I will also take advantage of any learning opportunity my school district provides. I believe that the more I can learn, the better teacher I will be.
You are never finished learning when you are a teacher!
