    I believe that reaching out to my coworkers for assistance, researching strategies in publications, and keeping a willingness to learn from others will contribute to my professional growth and a long, successful career in teaching.

    Reviewing the CCT Performance Profile was extremely helpful in examining and identifying my teaching practices prior to this process. 

    When I started this module, my classroom was almost 100  percent teacher driven.  By the end of the module, there was a noticeable sharing of classroom responsibilities and a greater participation by the students in the learning process.
