Professional Growth Plan

ISB Professional Goal: 

Develop a wellness survey for Grade 6 students. The wellness survey will ask students questions regarding external pressures, bullying, coping skills, feelings about school, healthy relationships, and wellness indicators including sleep, nutrition and activity levels. The wellness survey will be administered to small groups of students (mentor groups) as part of a larger initiative to increase counsellor visibility among Grade 6 students and reduce stigma around seeking adult assistance in solving personal issues.  Data collected from the wellness survey will be used to in counselling programming and mentoring classes.

    • Self assessment and reflection based on new teacher standards  (Tripod 7C’s)
    • Previous or new observation data from peers and principals
    • Student surveys (online surveys developed and aligned with 7C’s)
  • Identify colleagues, coaches, principals etc. that will play a supporting role in achieving your goal, and invite them to view and comment on your post. Encourage them to bookmark your blog and visit regularly.
  • Throughout the year, collect and share evidence to support your progress. Categorise these posts in Reflection.
