Education Program Webfolio
I've come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom.
It's my personal approach that creates the climate.
It's my daily mood that makes the weather.
As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.
I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.
In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or de-humanized.
This little corner of the web is the web portfolio which documents my progress toward a State of California Single Subject Credential for science in general, and chemistry in particular. It is a requirement of the Chapman University College Education Department's teaching credential program.
This web portfolio consists of four main sections, each containing elements demonstrating my qualifications to obtain a credential that will enable me to teach science in a California public middle or high school.
