G: My goal is to use collaborative, technology enriched open-ended projects for at least 80% of my instructional time.
A: I have researched various projects and experiments for the 1st quarter and incorporated them into my lesson plans for the 9 weeks.

E: As these lessons take place, I will be evaluating and extending using SMART goals that track the progress of the students and mastery level of concepts.
G: Attending at least 2 weeks of online or in person classes per year
A: Seek out and sign up for training's throughout the year. In addition, complete the course work with Walden and maintain my technology blog.
M: I will keep track of my training's through Eduphoria's Workshop function.
E: I will evaluate each course on a 1-on-1 basis and discuss with my colleagues the information learned. I will incorporated the strategies into my classroom and determine the success of implementing them.
I have not been able to attend other trainings as of yet; however, I am still searching for online trainings to benefit from. I try to look for intriguing trainings on topics that I am interested in; however, I also want to widen the possibilities to learn new information. By doing so I am exposing myself to ideas and training that I might not have thought that I would like. I am still working towards the goal of having two weeks of training completed by the end of the year.
I work on my first goal daily due to the expectations of my school and administration. It requires a lot of planning and dedication. My team started planning lessons and projects together last week and that has made this goal more manageable.
