Rational for my goals
1. I have chosen this goal because many schools in developed countries are focusing on strategies that promote 21st
century skills. The focus is to equip students with skills that will enable them to succeed in the 21st century and
beyond (justaskpublications.com).
2. I believe that learning takes place when students feel safe in the classroom environment and are not distracted by their
peers.

3. Students, parents and other stakeholders require data on students progress for various reasons. I believe that a teacher
should be able to gather data on student progress through valid and reliable assessment methods, and be able to present
it appropriately and clearly to various stakeholders.
4. I chose this goal because I believe that there is a lot to be learned from those that have been in the teaching field for
a long time. I like the quote from Benjamin Franklin that says “Experience is the best teacher, but a fool will learn
from no other”.
