Goal #1
Annual Professional Growth Plan for 2015 Name: Kari Siegfried
Goal: Increase my knowledge of SMART techonology
- By spending time developing my skills with SMART technology I believe that I will become a better-prepared teacher. The use of
technology within the classroom can help to foster a more conducive learning environment. As technology continues to change we must

Goal #2
Annual Professional Growth Plan for 2015 Name: Kari Siegfried
Goal: To obtain first aid certification
- I believe that it is important for educators to be comfortable and confident in the area of first aid. Working with young children anything can
happen. It is up to us to be able to help our children, whether it is dressing a cut, wrapping an injured ankle, or giving the Heimlich maneuver.
Because of this I want to ensure that I am prepared and confident in any first aid procedures.
