Standard VIII. Professional Development
I relize that I do not teach in a vacuum. Both the field of mathematics and the teaching profession undergo changes. There are new topics and techniques that emerge and it is important to keep up to date with those new developments.
By participating in professional conferences and continuing to read current research with an open mind I will ensure that I continue to grow as a teacher.
Staying informed and reflective about my teaching practice will allow me to continue to improve my effectiveness as an instructor and eventually will allow me to make positive contributions to my field.
