My professional goals include gaining experience teaching within and outside of the classroom setting. I am going to stay current from a professional development standpoint by attending workshops and conferences. I will take additional qualification courses to continue to develop my teaching practice. I am excited about becoming involved in eco-school projects and leadership opportunities within the school. I can see myself continuing my involvement within the outdoor education setting even once I have my own classroom. Five years from now I would like to use the experiences that I have gained teaching to help inform what I research for my masters degree in education.
