InTASC Standard 9: Professional Learning and Ethical Practice
The teacher engages in ongoing professional learning and uses evidence to continually evaluate his/her practice, particularly the effects of his/her choices and actions on others (learners, families, other professionals, and the community), and adapts practice to meet the needs of each learner.
9.1 This is Maryland In-Service was packed with many wonderful lectures, sessions, and resources that I took home to my studies. I especially enjoyed the session regarding theory classes and Middle School chorus.
9.2 The Howard County Music Educator's Professional Development Conference was an amazing experience during my student teaching internship. The various workshops gave me resources and the social opportunities gave me many connections to other teacher sin my county. I served as the scribe for one of the open-table discussions.
9.3 The MMEA State Conference is one of my favorite events of the school year. Workshops, lectures, concerts, and networking are some of the best ways to get teachers involved with other teachers on professional development.
