690 – Personal and Professional Goals Related to the Standards and Graduate Studies

Here are three goals that I would like to work on this year. I would like to incorporate surveys and exit slips
into my teaching. Currently I only do an exit slip at the end of a performance. I would like to improve my
scores from last year with my common assessment in reading and writing for second grade. I would like to
implement stations this year into my teaching to help with assessments.
