This electronic portfolio is designed to highlight my professional qualities, background knowledge, capacity to plan and capacity to teach—abilities that constitute a competent beginning teacher.
These aspects were drawn from the BC Teacher Regulation Branch (BC TRB) Standards for the educational competence and professional conduct of educators in BC. Collectively, these competencies present accurate directives of what professional educators should know and be able to do. They serve as a tribute to teachers – highlighting the important and skilful work of our proud and learned profession.
My e-portfolio highlights evidence of my competencies in reference to these aspects and includes self-reflections on my personal context for learning. Teaching is a profession, governed by a certifying body. My e-portfolio clearly identifies my strengths and my capacity to teach and learn as a professional educator.
