Introduction

In section three of this portfolio, you were able to read through the artifacts that I have

created during my time here at Medaille College. These artifacts highlighted my best

professional work. I believe that each of these artifacts showcases my ability to become an

effective and proficient teacher in today’s classroom setting. The artifacts have prepared me with

vast amount of material that can be used and applied with classrooms I will work in and at

various grade levels. The artifacts presented align with the curricular and professional standards

that must be met by educators in the field of teaching.

In section four of this portfolio project, the curriculum and professional standards that I

followed through creating my artifacts and the standards that I will follow as an educator will be

outlined in a chart. This chart will emphasize my ability to follow many outlined professional

standards for New York State and the province of Ontario as well as curriculum based in both.

Curriculum standards are set to ensure that students are accurately learning what is intended to

learn and be successful throughout their academic careers. Professional standards are set forth for

educators to follow to ensure that they are meeting the curricular needs of students along with

following code of ethics and various professional standards within the profession. These

curriculum and professional standards are extremely important for educators because it holds

them accountable for what is being learned and taught to the students and to themselves as

teachers. Being aware of these standards prepares teachers for the field and I believe that by

creating these artifacts and being familiar with the standards, will make us all effective and ready

teachers.

Alignment to the Curriculum and Professional Standards Chart


Below, you will find a chart outlining the curriculum and professional standards that

educators need to follow when teaching. These professional standards align and connect with the

artifacts presented within this portfolio assignment. These artifacts were created according to the

standards that are laid out for educators in New York and Ontario. This chart will provide you

with a quick glance of the curriculum and professional standards highlighted within the artifacts

from section three of this portfolio project.

Conclusion

Section four of this portfolio project provided a brief glance at the curriculum and

professional standards that I will, as an educator, need to follow when I enter the classroom

setting. I am very proud of the artifacts that I have included in this professional portfolio as they

highlight my best work throughout my time here at Medaille College. I have researched and

learned the many standards that are needed to be followed for my students and for myself

professionally. Section four showcased my ability to find appropriate standards that met the

requirements of the artifacts included in the portfolio. Through research, I learned of the various

professional standards such as code of ethics for New York and Ontario among so many others

that are applicable to the field of education. I feel as though by having created the artifacts, they

have allowed me to be more familiar and aware of curriculum in general and my professional

responsibilities that I will need to uphold as an educator.

In section five of this professional portfolio, you will be presented with my personal

reflection. In this reflection, I will reflect on my experiences, observations, and lessons that I

have learned and of my readiness to become a teacher in this ever changing world of education. I

hope you enjoyed reading this section.
