looking back
Looking Back...
  • Reflect upon the goals and plans
  • What were the highlights
  • What provided the sharpest contrasts and gave birth to new directions, perspectives, and inspirations
  • What needs to be reconstructed in order to provide clarity and better growth
  • What is the next 5 year plan going to be...
  • Having taught Standards based studio arts classes for K-12 in two local school districts, multiple after school programs and specialty arts camps and intensives, I have a good foundation not only in the arts, but also core subject integration into my arts curriculum. I have steadily attended local, state and national professional conferences to keep current with trends, learn new techniques and products available for the arts, the latest teaching strategies and to stay personally and professionally inspired. I am ready to expand my classroom experiences to include leadership and advocacy positions within the arts educator community without losing sight of my student centered foundation. I will keep the big picture in check by continuing my volunteerism with Vista Teen Outreach, The Kid's College and working with Lifeline and Boys and Girls Club as a one on one tutor.

Literature Review

Analysis of Motivation in Young Adolescents

byAlbert Minh Ngo, 2013

  • How to motivate at risk students-students with low probability for growth and development
  • Student disengagement results from lack of emotional connection to school environment and teacher
  • Use affirmative process(vs deficit approach) and student voice to determine how students can feel connected and how student perceives teacher
literature review1
Literature Review


1. “building a sense of school identity and connectedness

Rationale:lower achieving students often lack a sense of membership towards the school

(KEY) A strong sense of school membership is important because it can direct

students towards educational values and academic achievement.”

2. “These factors include:a strong relationship with their teacher, the perception

that their teacher cares for them and theopportunity to establish a personal

identity within the context of school

activities and peers. “


literature review2
Literature Review
  • Albert Mihn Ngo's research is one of the most current studies, albeit limited in numbers that aligns with my quest for strategies for motivating students in the bottom 1/3rd of the class
  • His findings are not surprising, but they are directly from the students instead of from an adult construct and evaluation
  • Ngo's methodology of Student Voice to reform educational practices aligns with my personal educational philosophies that student perspectives have to be considered when considering what we teach and how we teach and how we make students feel within that experience
  • Ngo also notes that for high risk students, the classroom must be well managed and the students have student who can help in close proximity in order to feel supported and comfortable.
  • Making plans and setting goals provides a clear roadmap on where we are going and what we'd like to achieve. The details filling in come as a result of making contacts, building relationships and capitalizing on opportunities whenever and how ever they present themselves. Therefore the most important component to my five year plan is flexibility and reflection. As these choices build in momentum I will have to reassess and reconstruct my plans to fit the movement of life and the exciting mystery of future experiences. I am thrilled to have constructed a master plan even if it changes in direction because I have been able to discern the types of learning experiences I am looking to create as a classroom teacher, professional educator, community collaborator and especially as an individual, working one on one, with a student who needs support.
