Learning Journey - Final Compilation

When I began this program in January, 2023, I was not sure exactly what to expect. I had just finished my master’s in Leadership & Administration and completed my state exams for my principle licensure.  However, I always said that I wanted to complete 20 years in the classroom before I moved into administration and the 23-23 school year will be year 23 for me.  I was fortunate to be offered an opportunity to move out of the core content classroom to become an interventionist for the 23-24 school year, which I am excited about because it is something I have always been interested in.    I knew that I wanted to integrate technology and have students take more control of their learning in the intervention classes that I will be teaching, so I felt it was important to more knowledgeable myself in technology and eportolios.  As I have completed the classes and reflect upon  my own learning journey, I have learned a lot about both my own learning and my teaching style.  I am still learning how to build my own eportfolio and I am still learning how to navigate and create the assignments to be included in my eportfolio.  I am going to implement new templates this fall, as I have not been satisfied with the layouts that I am currently using; I am actually using a new template for this assignment.  With that being said, I am honestly proud of how far I have come in learning about eportfolios, and creating my own website since January. I know that I have a long way to go, and I still have not figured out how to adequately add a blog, but again that is one of my goals this next semester.


Innovation plans are essential in education to adapt to the changing landscape, enhance learning experiences, and equip students with the skills they need to succeed in an ever-evolving world. By fostering creativity, collaboration, and continuous improvement, innovation in education creates a more dynamic and effective learning environment for all stakeholders involved.  https://www.cartwrightm.com/5305/innovation-plan/


“Incorporating a growth mindset in the classroom is a powerful way to help students develop resilience, perseverance, and a love of learning.  Encourage your students to add the word "yet" to the end of sentences such as "I can't do this." This helps students recognize that just because they haven't learned something yet, doesn't mean they won't ever learn it.”  https://www.cartwrightm.com/5303/growth-mindset/


“Learning is a complex and dynamic process that extends far beyond the boundaries of a classroom. It involves acquiring knowledge, developing skills, and transforming perspectives. While educational resources, instructional methods, and individual effort play crucial roles in learning, relationships also hold significant importance. Human beings are inherently social creatures, and the connections we form with others profoundly impact our ability to learn and grow.”  https://www.cartwrightm.com/5313/my-philosophy/


"Being in education is one of the most fulfilling professions, and it provides an opportunity for me to make a positive impact on the lives of students and teachers alike. As a teacher, I have the opportunity to help students develop their knowledge, skills, and character, as well as cultivate a love of learning that will stay with them throughout their lives. As a future administrator, I will have the ability to support and guide teachers in creating effective learning environments that encourage academic and personal growth." https://www.cartwrightm.com/5303/learning-manifesto/


Learning Communities play a vital role in education by fostering collaboration, reflective practice, and personalized professional development. By promoting a culture of continuous learning and improvement, Learning Communities ultimately contribute to better student outcomes and a more supportive and effective educational environment. https://www.cartwrightm.com/5303/contribution-to-your-learning-and-the-learnin/
