Artifact: PLC meetings at Baker Elementary School in Upper St. Clair School District and Recommendation letter from
Mr. David Fee, Upper St. Clair School District
Justification: Through PLC meetings at Baker Elementary School, all of the fourth grade teachers including myself looked at data in the Pearson Math series Envision and sought to see how we could improve test scores. By looking at data and evaluating how students could be successful, I feel that I can rate myself as exceeds. I feel that Mr. David Fee's letter of recommendation exemplifies this idea as well.
V.A.2. Accesses and interprets data from available technologies and resources to address long-term and strategic planning needs of the school in areas of student achievement, personnel, fiscal operations, facilities, technology and/or other school district initiatives
Artifact: Grant Proposal
Justification: I have rated myself as exceeds because I feel that I am able to strategically plan for new technologies to come into the district to ensure that student's achievement will grow. Through developing a grant for the Hummingbird project, I feel that a school district would benefit from this plan.
V.A.3. Compares data from local, state and national sources to develop an action plan designed to enhance student success
Artifact: PLC Meeting at Stratton Elementary and Common Planning Meetings at Stratton Elementary
Justification: I rated myself as meets in this category because I feel as a second year teacher I am still learning how to disseminate information from local to state. From Common Planning to PLCs, I have worked with my two administrators to make make mastery matrixes as well as look at standard growth percentile to see how many students are growing above a 60% growth rate. As I continue to teach, I feel that my rating will get stronger.

Artifact: PLC Meetings at Stratton Elementary and Common Planning Meetings at Stratton Elementary
Justification: I rated myself as meets in this category because I feel as a second year teacher I am still learning how to communicate to stakeholders data. From parent conferences to data conferences such as Common Planning, I am learning how to orient myself in giving data results that are both negative and positive.
