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.

Engaging Incentive and Behavior Management Package

Engaging Incentive and Behavior Management Package

Have you lost your way finding a pathway to recapture your child’s focus to simply behave? Sometimes, it’s not the parents but the choice of the child that determines their pathway to success. How can you guide your child in making those right decisions? Well, this Mega-bundle is here to help with all of that! Allow positive reinforcement to drive the interests of your children with an all-encompassing effective Behavior Management Program. This “130” page resource allows for your child’s choice of incentive as they earn Behavior Bucks to cash in using a customized made catalog system. They earn their cash by completing random (customized) chore cards and successfully making it through daily-timed behavior challenges. This program is what parents have been waiting for! There is so many options and this entire program is customized for your creative approach. This package contains a total of 6 different colored-themes (total of 6 children or students). In addition, there are black and white templates at the end so you can create your own incentive system. Save ink by printing in black and white. Since there is over 130 pages, prep time will take some time. So please plan accordingly. Students will love this incentive program and you will see a difference in their behavior once they know they can earn things on their own! The idea is to focus on the most serious behaviors or bad habits. This program will quickly eliminate these detrimental behaviors or reduce the quick outbursts frequently. Please like us on our Facebook page and send us stories of how this behavior program worked for you. I have only received positive comments so far and hope to see your children modify their behavior and bad habits for their best interests.
