Running Head: PROFESSIONAL DISPOSITION

Classroom observation and volunteering in the classroom has enabled my progress


towards achieving my goals. Being able to volunteer and be an active participant in a
kindergarten classroom has assisted with my classroom management skills and understanding of
how to handle certain situations. I have utilized the teachers I know to create relationships and
bonds with other teachers. I dont believe at this time that anything has hindered progress
towards achieving my goals.
During student teaching, I plan to work on and develop my lesson planning skills and I
want to develop my discipline skills. I have modified my goals from TED 606 to be the above
goals. I plan to work on and develop my lesson planning skills further by working closely with
my master teacher to create lesson plans that benefit and further the students knowledge and
understanding. I plan to do this by creating lesson plans and asking my master teacher to review
them. I will also ask my master teacher to allow me to implement some of my lesson plans so I
am able to gain knowledge in what does and does not work. I plan to further develop my
discipline skills by observing my master teacher, taking notes, and actively practicing my
discipline and classroom management. I will measure the achievement of my goals through
discussion with my master teacher. Since my master teacher will be observing and teaching me, I
will discuss with her/him what I can do to better my discipline and what I am already doing well.
I will observe student interest and success to measure for my success with lesson planning. The
above measurements are meaningful to me because I will receive feedback from someone who is
experienced with teaching and therefore this should better me as a future teacher and in my
student teaching position.
The above goals will help with my classroom management, as I will be able to keep the
students attention focused on the lesson if the lesson is of interest and well thought out.

Working on my classroom discipline will affect my further classroom management as once I set
consequences and discipline students will understand how the classroom should be set up. I will
encourage open communication with parents so that they are aware of what is going on in the
classroom and how their students are behaving. I believe communication is a key factor in
parents feeling their students are being successful. For families whom are culturally or
linguistically diverse, open communication will allow them to help their student succeed in my
classroom. This will encourage parents to ask for extra help with their students and ask for
clarification on assignments. Open communication will encourage the success of students in my
classroom, as communication is key to any situation in or out of the classroom.
