The School Climate Control Conference (Video)

The School Climate Control Conference (Video)

This 90 minute video covers all the components that are necessary to provide a positive school and classroom climate. I reference the bully proof classroom app in the conference, this is no longer available. The bpconlineacademy is no longer available as well. The conference is ideal for a whole school in-service and can be used to acquire professional development hours. A great resource.

Teaching Professional Development, Portfolio, Organization, and Observation Logs

Teaching Professional Development, Portfolio, Organization, and Observation Logs

As you know, professional experience and organization is a result of your hard work. Most of that hard work goes unnoticed. A lot of teachers I know forget most of their side- experiences because they go above and beyond and never have any type of accountability to showcase that work. I have developed a tool for you that will assist in both your professional experience and organization. I have put together a set of three different professional development portfolio logs that will keep all that hard work and your volunteering organized and ready for review at a moment’s notice. These logs are a great way to organize your personal and professional experience. For every hour you instruct in the classroom, observe, attend conferences, and/or take advanced education classes, you need to log it down so that you can maintain and validate your personal, professional, and field experiences. These logs can be put together as a quick-reference, cosmetic portfolio binder that you can keep in your classroom or at home. The event sheets contained within these files can be taken with you to any event that will help build to your professional portfolio or resume. These logs provide the organization you need to fulfill any type of professional development event. I have provided several copies of these logs to multiple disciplines and professions already. Teachers, tend to enjoy these logs as they are custom for them. However, these logs can be used in multiple ways through diverse mediums across various professions.
