The purpose of this portfolio is to make my talents and my experience easier to communicate to a future employer. It especially reveals that I have a great deal of experience in working with and understanding differences among a variety of students.In this portfolio I have first included my working resume. This resume is updated and includes my student teaching experience. Secondly, there are some basic philosophies, policies, and ideas that have been the result of my student teaching experience. These are the documents I felt to be the most important reflections on my student teaching experience.The major part of my portfolio has a particular focus. I have chosen to focus on one of the ten INTASC Principles upon which Ball State evaluates its student teachers. The principle I have chosen is called "Understanding Differences."Within this principle, I have included numerous artifacts from my past experiences with teaching. An outline is displayed at the beginning of all that I have decided to include. I have categorized my artifacts into five sections. "Advanced First-Graders", "Multiple Intelligences", "Experience with Diverse Ages", "Four Major Learning Styles", and "Mexican Kindergarten" are the five section headings.
