Link To Scaffolding Presentation

Throughout the beginning stages of my teaching career, it is important that I build skills in leadership and collaboration in order to ensure learner growth and respect in the classroom. During my student teaching experience, I have worked to grow in these areas so that I can prepare for my career. 

This artifact is connected to leadership and collaboration because as a student teacher I am collaborating with my mentor and building leadership roles to use in the classroom.

I chose this artifact because my experience as a student teacher has been very exciting with its challenges. I am new to all of this and engaging with students is something I try my best to work with especially due to the virtual classroom environment. I currently work with my mentor teacher to create and edit lesson plans that will engage our students while completing assignments that cover specific standards. We collaborate ideas and discuss future plans with the rest of the school faculty. I am really learning to rely on myself and others in my school body to ensure a great experience for all students. These collaborations are clarifying what my role is as an educator showing positive leadership.
