What do you hope to gain from your fellowship experience?
I hope to gain insight into my practices in the classroom and as a colleague. I also hope to form a network of educator friends from across the state to gain a broader perspective of how teaching differs from each region.
- How do you plan to implement something you learned at the institute in your classroom?
- How has the week compared with other PD opportunities you have attended?
The institute gave me a different perspective on myself and my teaching style. The Myers-Briggs assessment was especially beneficial to me in learning how to relate to students, teachers, and administrators with different personalities and working styles from my own. It also helped me to understand how I think through my projects, and facilitate differentiation in classroom.
This Professional Development opportunity was much more personalized than any others I have attended. The PD actually allowed me to spend time working with my PLC of Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom colleagues. This week at NCCAT I met with the other teachers in the Kenan Fellowship Project and discussed the logistics of bringing Ag Night to actuality.
Wow, what a full first day ! I am looking forward to the remainder of the week ! I’ve enjoyed talking with the other Farm Bureau Ag Fellows and sharing some background and ideas about our projects. Many of my prior PD opportunities have prepared me well for the digital portion of this fellowship, so thank you Surry County Schools for quality teacher training workshops !
