We recently have
developed an annual
art show where we
welcome sister schools
to participate and this
provides us with
unique opportunities to
interact with parents
and other colleagues to
talk about the program
and their student
experience. We think
we need to keep the
parents involved not
only in their students’
progress but in the
school as well. Parents
are welcomed to
volunteer for activities
in class and other areas
of support. However, I
think I can be more
vocal about these
opportunities. 10/6/17

The annual art show
increased immensely in
the two years at my
school. Attendance and
participation of artists
tripled. We still haven’t
fully tapped into the
families of our
students, yet we are
looking to start an art
club next year that
would give students
whom are fully

their families in
activities. We’ve also
discussed creating
opportunities for
parents to lend their
time in the classroom.

Our program and
department still has
not quite developed a
big enough parent
relationship where we
can have more
participation with our
goals and needs. I think
we need a better
platform to keep
parents updated about
our events, needs, and
goals. Perhaps we need
a newsletter, or gallery.

Parent interactions and
contributions have not
been full tapped into
with my personal
classroom and the
department. With our
new development of a
department website we
hope to be more
communicative to our
supporters and parents
about our needs. Also, I
am going to look for
CSTP 6: Developing as a Professional Educator

Element Emerging Exploring Applying Integrating Innovating
more opportunities for
parents to be involved
in our larger events
and even perhaps
developing art
experiences for parents
to partake in and build
interest. These are still
in the idea phase and I
have to work out the
formal issues of adult

This is an area we are
already starting to improve.
Since our program is
underdeveloped we are
seeking outside assistance
within the local art
communities, not just for
resources but for ideas on
broadening the program
and giving the students
more opportunities. We
invite pillars of the art
community to the art show
and parents with art
connections so that they
may see the potential
within our program. I also
seek additional educational
networking through a non-
profit educational
foundation that I have
worked for. I will say that
we are not still in full effect,
but we have goals. 10/6/17

Still in the preliminary
phases of trying to engage
the community in the
program at our school. We
are making sure to
communicate for events
through our school’s social
media connections. We still
haven’t made our way into
the local professional art
community, including local
art societies or art focused
businesses. I’m seeking
connections from my
previous master teacher
who worked nearby.
Hopefully this course of
research will be fruitful.

My deparment chair is the
learder of our outreach
efforts and is always
looking for partners of our
goals to help with spread of
our mission and needs.
While I am a part of these
efforts, I can’t say I lead the
way. I need to look for more
ways to find professional
partnerships all on my own
and with more local
community leaders.

We have plans to increase
our community outreach,
bring our sister schools into
our events, seek
experiences from outside
insiutions for field trips,
and also opportunities for
students to use our content
for service in the near
future. They are in the
planning phase, so we are
looking to innovate, but we
have to complete a few
things before we can claim
to be innovating. 5/9/19

When it comes to professionalism between students,
colleagues, families, and communities, I hold myself to the
highest and strictest standards. I have the purest devotion
to nurture and protect my students.

I speak up on behalf of the safety and benefit of all my
students, and have done so to other colleagues and
administrators. I believe that all students are mirrors and
reflect their teachers and surroundings. I make my work
with my students heavily focused on kindness and
integrity. The classroom I conduct is an open, safe, and
accepting culture. I will protect it with all my efforts, and
feel personally responsible for the mental, emotional, and
ethical development of all my students. Besides their
parents, we are a key resource in molding the future
character of our youth. I take that with the highest sense of
purpose and responsibility. There is absolutely no
acceptance of anything less. 10/6/17

CSTP 6: Developing as a Professional Educator

Element Emerging Exploring Applying Integrating Innovating
Nothing less than being a leader for being a professional
teacher and a good example is acceptable. My students are
my priority and their care trumps any and all content
within my class. Students are mirrors and I must be an
example for them in all things. If my students remember
nothing about art in my class for the rest of their lives,
they will at the very least understand that I am a teacher
who respects others, looks out for her students, and
responsible in all things. 5/13/18

As always, I focus highly on being an example of the
practices and attitudes of a professional teacher. There is
no way I can accept anything less. The well-being and
success of my students is the highest priority in all I do.

After this semester, I’ve had more opportunities to begin
creating a profile or persona for myself as a teacher who
leads by example. I take my responsibility of being a
protector of my students. I preach and practice a strong
sense of integrity and challenge anything or anyone who
comes close to dishonoring them. With my leadership
project I have also begun to step into the spotlight as
someone who wants to build and grow, not just personally,
but as a member of a learning community. The education
system is important but also still needs improvement and
needs to be held to the highest standards of all
professionalism. I honor those standards and work to push
those standards for all. 5/9/19
