It is essential that every prospective teacher create a professional teaching portfolio. This is usually done during student teaching and is something that you add to as your teaching career progresses. Think of your portfolio as an expansion of your resume; a tangible artifact that showcases all of your accomplishments and classroom experiences.
Here are the top 5 must-have items to include in your portfolio:
- Teaching philosophy
- Planning Materials (Lessons)
- Letters of Recommendation
For the full list of items to include, and to learn how to sort, assemble, and use your portfolio, see Perfecting Your Teaching Portfolio.
