  3. THE TEACHING PORTFOLIO of Alex Rister
  4. If we aren’t focused on EVOLVING we aren’t doing our best ,
  5. I evolve in 2 ways: for myself and for my students I focus on evolving in two ways... http://www.flickr.com/photos/40645538@N00/3506877253/

  8. I constantly improve myself by reading and studying books, articles, blogs, and journals; by volunteering for leadership positions at my school and in my community; and by pursuing higher education of my own. http://www.flickr.com/photos/chazoid/2598478591/in/photostream/

  10. I firmly believe in grit and in the growth mindset. I teach these concepts to my students, and I lead by example every single day in the classroom. http://www.flickr.com/photos/19429110@N00/3382813383/
  11. LEADERSHIP STYLE What kind of teacher am I?
  12. http://www.flickr.com/photos/jdhancock/7038452711/sizes/o/in/photostream/ TRANSFORMATIONAL TEACHER
  13. Objectives: TO CHALLENGE STUDENTS http://www.flickr.com/photos/jdhancock/7038452711/sizes/o/in/photostream/ TRANSFORMATIONAL TEACHER
  14. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tokyolunch/95559048/sizes/o/in/photostream/ Transformational leaders possess four characteristics. The first is intellectual stimulation. Transformational leaders challenge the status quo; encourage creativity; explore new ways of doing things; and pursue new opportunities to learn and to grow. Reference: Bass, Bernard M. (1985). Leadership and Performance. NY: Free Press
  15. To encourage intellectual stimulation in the classroom, I use a mix of 10-minute lessons, discussion, and activity. I challenge the way my students currently think about communication and presentation. Together, we come up with newer, better, and more creative ways to solve problems through written, verbal, and visual communication using guidance from experts like Nancy Duarte and Garr Reynolds. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tokyolunch/95559048/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  16. Objectives: TO ENCOURAGE STUDENTS http://www.flickr.com/photos/jdhancock/7038452711/sizes/o/in/photostream/ TRANSFORMATIONAL TEACHER
  17. http://www.flickr.com/photos/markjsebastian/3280003051/sizes/o/in/photostream/ The second characteristic of transformational leaders is individualized consideration. Transformational leaders encourage followers; foster supportive relationships; keep lines of communication open; and pursue a free-flowing exchange of ideas. Reference: Bass, Bernard M. (1985). Leadership and Performance. NY: Free Press
  18. I give my students individualized consideration both in and out of the classroom. During office hours, I meet one-on-one with students to address their personal educational needs. I meet with students after hours and on weekends to accommodate their busy lives. I send reminder emails often including QuickTime video explanations in order to best support my students’ individual learning styles. http://www.flickr.com/photos/markjsebastian/3280003051/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  19. Objectives: TO MOTIVATE STUDENTS http://www.flickr.com/photos/jdhancock/7038452711/sizes/o/in/photostream/ TRANSFORMATIONAL TEACHER
  20. http://www.flickr.com/photos/26341587@N04/4336427399/sizes/o/in/photostream/ The third characteristic of transformational leaders is inspirational motivation. Transformational leaders communicate a clear vision to others; excite others to share that vision; and inspire passion to achieve goals. Reference: Bass, Bernard M. (1985). Leadership and Performance. NY: Free Press
  21. I strive to inspire and motivate my students on our first day by giving them a clear vision of the course and what I hope for them after they complete the class. I communicate my 3 goals with them and ask them to think of 3 goals of their own. I spend ample class time asking them to reflect on how they plan to meet their 3 goals. http://www.flickr.com/photos/26341587@N04/4336427399/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  22. Objectives: TO SERVE STUDENTS http://www.flickr.com/photos/jdhancock/7038452711/sizes/o/in/photostream/ TRANSFORMATIONAL TEACHER
  23. http://www.flickr.com/photos/hamed/277221852/sizes/o/in/photostream/ The fourth and final characteristic of transformational leaders is idealized influence. Transformational leaders serve as role models. Others trust and respect them; emulate them; and internalize their perspectives. Reference: Bass, Bernard M. (1985). Leadership and Performance. NY: Free Press
  24. Without idealized influence, a teacher’s message will not resonate. In my classroom, I respect my students and their opinions, and I encourage them to be better not only at the subject we are learning but also to be better people. To do this, I teach life lessons along with communication skills, and I must embody those life lessons. http://www.flickr.com/photos/hamed/277221852/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  25. I SEEK TO transform STUDENTS http://www.flickr.com/photos/jdhancock/7038452711/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  26. THIS IS HOW I do it... http://www.flickr.com/photos/40645538@N00/3506877253/
