April Professional Development - Feedback and Grade Reporting

April Feedback/Grade Reporting Reflection

I attended the April professional development. I had the opportunity to present 2 best practice examples for quality feedback from my courses. I also learned about the new grade reporting process in TheSIS.

April Professional Learning- JIT Training Host

April Reflection

Kelly Gardner and I have put together a weekly professional development presentation for our Just In Time Teachers. I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with our newest teachers this semester.

March Professional Learning Artifacts: Shmoop and Communication PD sessions

March Reflection: January and February Professional Learning Sessions

I attended the January PD on Shmoop which was very interesting. I included a Shmoop resource for my students this month to assist with their mythology projects.


I was a co-presenter at the February PD on Communication. My focus was positive communication best practices. I enjoyed the opportunity to share with my peers.

February Professional Learning- Winter Professional Learning Symposium

Reflection: Winter Professional Learning Symposium

I attended the Winter PLS on February 1st. I greatly enjoyed meeting all the new teachers with whom I have been working at Just In Time this semester. I also learned how to use Twitter in a great session with Jeff Giddens. I find the PLS a wonderful time to collaborate with colleagues face-to-face; something I miss from teaching in brick and mortar.
