MISSION STATEMENT
The Platteville Middle School staff and faculty believe that:
The middle school is an educational response to the needs and characteristics of youngsters
during early adolescence and deals with the full range of intellectual and developmental needs.
Young people going through the rapid growth and extensive maturation that occurs in early
adolescence need an educational program that is distinctively different from either the
elementary or the secondary model.
This is one of the most important age levels because the determining factors of one's behavior as
an adult (self-concept, learning interests, skills, and values) are largely formed in this period of
life.
The academic needs of middle school students are affected greatly by their physical, social, and
emotional needs which also must be addressed directly in the school program.
In order to promote these beliefs, we need:
Educators knowledgeable about and committed to young adolescents
A balanced curriculum based on student developmental needs
Comprehensive advising and counseling
Evaluation procedures in keeping with the nature of young adolescents
Cooperative planning
Positive school climate
The Platteville Middle School staff is committed to the idea that it is critical to incorporate these
beliefs into our every day relationships with students because at Platteville Middle School "The
Kids Come First".

Step II B. Description of Goal to be Addressed
Goal:

order to incorporate classroom technology into my instructional practices to engage students in
learning through cultural relevance and enhance student learning outcomes.


Step II C. Rationale for the Goal: Links to Professional
Situation and Wisconsin Educator Standards
Goal:
I will learn how to use new technology (i.e. SMART Boards, iPads, etc) in
order to incorporate classroom technology into my instructional practices to engage students in
learning through cultural relevance and enhance student learning outcomes.

Rationale for your Goal:
I have chosen this goal because I understand how important the new technological
advancements to the social and educational development of today's learners. With all of the
world's information at every students' fingertips, I would like to be able to assist the students in
safely and efficiently use these tools to navigate through these tools. I also understand that
students respond better to material that is important to them. Because current technology
developments are what is relevant to them, I believe taht is important for me to know how to be
able to efficiently use these methods to communicate my lessons to them.
