4a. Reflecting on Teaching 

A self-assessment I completed following my clinical internship. I assessed myself using the Danielson Framework, Domains 1-4.

An assignment from Leadership in Dance Education designed to provide prospective teachers the space to reflect on their beliefs prior to the Ed.M. Program and now. 

4a. Reflecting on Teaching & 4b. Maintaining Accurate Records 

The Assessment Commentary from my edTPA used to address the ways in which I reflect on my teaching, evaluate student understanding, and implement a course of action to strengthen student learning in the future. 

4c. Communicating with Families 

I communicated with families many times throughout the semester, including at Back-to-School-Night, through Seesaw, and even through Zoom, during class!

During the NDEO conference (2019), I represented the Rutgers community by handing out pamphlets and speaking on behalf of my experiences as B.F.A. student as well as Ed.M. candidate. 

My involvement in the National Honors Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA) has encouraged me to highlight my Artistic Merit, Leadership, and Academic Achievement within the Professional Community.

As noted below, I presented alongside Cristina Marte & Laura de la Garza Noble at the annual Dance New Jersey Festival (2021). We presented dance educators with new ideas to apply when delivering content in the classroom. This presentation was created in response to challenges faced due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

4e. Growing and Developing Professionally 

I was fortunate enough to attend the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO) Conference in October 2019. This conference was an eye-opening opportunity for me as I deepened my understanding of advocacy, content knowledge, social justice, and pedagogical skills. The National Dance Education Organization has encouraged me to be the change I wish to see in the world.
