My Professional Development Goals


  • Create an environment that represents and includes a wide variety of differences. This can be done through posters, flags, literature, and language used in the classroom.
    • I will offer a variety of literature that not only represents diversity such as diverse abilities (cognitively, socially, emotionally and physically), gender, sexuality, Indigenous, black and other persons of colour, but I will also offer these pieces of literature written and produced by the above mentioned diverse groups.
  • Provide an environment that is readily available and usable for all students and their differing abilities. Some examples of this include:
    • Choice of lighting and materials for sensory students.
    • Desk, chair and furniture options in the classroom that can be used by all students rather then just some.
    • Choice of visuals, reading material, instructional approaches.
    • Offer independent study areas
    • Offer group study areas
  • Create a safe space for students who identify as LGBTQ2S+
    • Use, recognize and accept students names and pronouns.
    • Use inclusive language while avoiding binary language and instruction.

Lesson Plans

Make an authentic effort in studying, teaching and learning about anti racism by creating lesson plans that revolve around diversity instead of including it to reach the status quo.

Create lesson plans that are diverse and represents differing students but that are also easily modified to fit all students needs.

Create lesson plans using a fluid and forever changing mindset rather than one fixed idea of how to teach.
