About My Portfolio

In August 2011, I completed the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at Seattle Pacific University (SPU).  Prior to certification, SPU required that students document their learning and development throughout the program by using an electronic portfolio format. As part of the certification process, I demonstrated competency on the four teacher certification standards of Washington state (Standards STLP). I will be used this site to demonstrate my developing competency.

As I completed courses during the MAT program and my student teaching internship, I submitted three types of blogging posts:

  • The first type of entry includes reflections on what I learned and on my experiences.
  • The second type of entry are slightly more formal as I included both teacher-based and student-based artifacts (papers, projects, images, video links, etc.) with my posts to help demonstrate my developing competency on the certification standards.
  • The third type of entry are reflective assignment submissions that my instructors asked of me as part of the course they taught.

For every post, I will aligned the entry with either the certification standards and/or other tags that I found meaningful. Faculty and my University Coordinator periodically reviewed my posts and had an opportunity to provide feedback.

Finally, as required in the program, I developed meta reflections on each standard.  These can be found on the “Standards” pages in this site.
