Description of Activity Reflection
8/14/13 3 Hrs. Project Invest Mentor Training- training to mentor a novice teachers I learned so much about what it would take to mentor a new teacher;
what they might need, the different cycles of what they might go
through, and what it looked like when they were having successes
and struggles.
9/2/13-
6/3/13
30 Hrs. Served as a campus mentor to a novice teacher with no experience.
Met with her for one hour weekly for supplemental planning and 2
and performed 2 -45 minute evaluations in her classroom as a
requirement of the program.
I worked with a very smart and pleasant mentee. I was anxious
because I was always worried about doing the right things for her
and giving her the right advice. She had questions about planning,
management, and professional relationships. I was able to see much
growth in her and she has blossomed into an amazing teacher.
1/13/14 5 Hrs. Interviewed candidates for a Special Education Teacher Position I got lots of insight by talking to the principal about what she thought
of the candidates and watching her ask questions. I started thinking
about the qualities that I would want for a prospective teacher
candidate.
1/23/14 4 Hrs. Preparation and Execution of a Staff Meeting: Topic- Math
Review
I was very nervous about speaking in front of a staff. I was familiar
with the topic, but nervous about how the staff would take it. I
started off shaky, but was very confident by the end. It gave me
confidence for future time speaking in front of a group.
1/26/14 8 Hrs. Region IV Math Conference I learned some new strategies for teaching math and also got see
some different presenter styles that I would like to develop in myself.
1/28/14 4 Hrs. TELPAS Trainer Professional Development Session I went to this meeting, know that I would be training the staff. I have
been trained in TELPAS before, but not to present to such a large
audience. I was very diligent in making sure that I understood
everything and that I would be able to present to the staff adequately.
I took many notes and made to-do list right away, in preparation.
2/4/14 3 Hrs. Primary Math Group 1- Meeting and Preparation: videotaping
myself working with students, planning agenda for teachers,
gather materials, running off handouts for the meeting, and
facilitating the meeting
This was a group that I wanted to start in response to the diverse
needs of our students in math. We needed more differentiation in
our approach to small groups and a better method for knowing what
our students knew. In this group, I trained teachers on a program
called, Teaching Number. I modeled what the different levels
looked like with videos, gave them strategies for moving students
from level to level, and gave them teaching tools that they could use
at the small group math table. This group had 8 sessions that showed
all of the levels and ended with a celebration of learning.

2/15/14 8 Hrs. Love and Logic Training I learned ways and strategies to work with students for effectiveness
and to understand where students were coming from. I know the
strategies will help me as a teacher, but also as a future
administrator.
