4a. - PD/PLC - artifacts
- I worked with the SREB trainer to create monthly professional development for LDC NC East Cohort II teachers (Roanoke Rapids, Bertie, and Nash-Rocky Mount). I created literacy professional development for all Chaloner Middle and Roanoke Rapids High teachers for September 2015, November 2015, and February 2016. I will be presenting at SREB's High Schools That Work National Conference in July 2016.
- I created the agenda and activities for the September 22, 2015, CMS Staff PD: Student Engagement, LDC/MDC Overview, Carousel Brainstorming, and Kahoot.it demonstration. I based the PD on needs I observed in the teachers' classes and on an overview of a new three-year program.
- I observed, video recorded, and analyzed one PLC at CMS. I presented my observations to my NLEA cohort in this PLC presentation on 11.14.15 for Dr. Cathy Williams's class.
- I created the agenda, activities, and flipped presentation for the November 17, 2015 CMS Staff PD: Teaching Vocabulary and RRHS Staff PD: Literacy Strategies.
- I took a protocol Dr. Cathy Williams gave me, adapted it for use at CMS with Principal Jeff White, and shared it with the CMS teachers for implementation: Deconstructing Standards Protocol.
- I created the agenda and activities for the February 9, 2016, RRHS Staff PD: Implementing Literacy Design Collaborative Year 1, Semester 1 (see Google Slides below)
4b. - Recruitment - artifacts
- I attended the NC State University Educator Job Fair on April 21, 2015, as a recruiter for Roanoke Rapids Graded School District (see picture above).
- I recruited a candidate for NELA Cohort VI; he was accepted in February 2016.
- I attended the University of North Carolina - Wilmington Job Fair on March 7, 2016, as a recruiter for Roanoke Rapids Graded School District (see picture above).
- I supported the English teachers who are now teaching the classes I taught. I provided all of my English I and Honors English I resources to one teacher, all of my AP English Literature resources to a second teacher, and all of my AP English Language resources to a third teacher. I was proactive with the third and was able to convince my principal to have us co-teach that course last year, so she would have practical experience before teaching it on her own. This experience has taught me how important strong teacher induction programs are.
4c. - Evaluation - artifacts
- I conducted peer observations and adhered to legal requirements for teacher evaluation.
- I conducted 9 pre-observation conferences, observations, and post-observation conferences for the NCEES cycle round 1 at CMS. I provided instructional strategies to help teachers improve their practice.
- I conducted 26 observations and post-observation conferences for NCEES cycle round 2 at CMS and RRHS. I provided instructional strategies to help teachers improve their practice. (See examples of my evaluation comments and post-observation conference feedback below.)
- I conducted 8 observations and post-observation conferences for NCEES cycle round 3 at CMS and RRHS. I provided instructional strategies to help teachers improve their practice.
- During 2015-16, I observed at least one teacher in every department at RRHS (English, world languages, science, social studies, math, physical education, fine arts, career and technical education, exceptional children, and JROTC) and in every grade level and department at CMS (all core areas in grade 6, grade 7, grade 8; exploratory; and exceptional children).
