Hi, I'm Erin, and I teach English. This portfolio chronicles my educational accomplishments. You can e-mail me at ekkross@gmail.com.

Telecommunications and Information Access

The competent teacher will use telecommunications and information-access resources to support instruction.

Rationale

These two email correspondences between my high school student teaching placement cooperating teachers demonstrate my ability to use telecommunications in order to prepare and collaborate with other educators. This collaboration gives me access to the knowledge and experience they have gained throughout their years in the field of education. This ultimately helps me to improve my own instructional methods and knowledge.

These emails have also allowed me to set up face-to-face meetings with my cooperating teachers, and then later discuss plans and important information again through email.

Through consistent use of email, I am able to grow in my professional peer interactions, both electronically and face-to-face. The skill of writing professional correspondence is one that will be useful throughout the rest of my teaching career in order to make sure that I have the most positive professional interactions possible.
