Summary of Strengths and Areas of Possible Growth

My teaching is very student centered. I am constantly seeking feedback from both my students and my colleagues. Also, I am
always actively checking on the needs of my students through 504, IEP, and ELD files. For every assessment, I want to make
sure that my students with specific needs have accommodated or modified exams. Furthermore, I have a strong dialogue
with many students and families as a means of better understanding student circumstances. In the future, I want to be more
involved with the professional community outside of my school. I also want to read more current research as a means of
better serving our marginalized students. Finally, I need to seek extra support on helping those with ADHD and anxiety.
