A little about me...

Kia ora!
My name is Juliana Treadwell and I have the privilege of being a part of the MDTA 2016 crew! During my first year of this course I will be a part of an awesome year two/three class at Tamaki Primary School with my highly knowledgeable mentor Sally Barlow. I'm super pumped for this crazy adventure and through this blog I hope you can live and learn vicariously with me and enjoy the experience as much as I am!

"We don't learn by doing, we learn by reflecting on what we have done" - Unknown

Todays digital immersion session was dedicated to ensuring our PRT site was up to date. We were lucky enough to have Anne Sinclair to support us with the content required for our site. I remember back to the beginning of the year and one of the past MDTA's advising us to not leave it all till the end of the year, just to slowly eat away at it constantly throughout the year. Generally I'm more of the classic last minute person, take time to think things through and then scramble to put it all together with a day to go. However, for once, I actually decided to seriously take on this advice. Each time I have had PRT release I have spent 15-20 minutes just updating minutes, observations, feedback, PTC's ect, and somehow I actually have manage to keep on top of the workload!

One of the main things I think it is most important to remember is to include reflection as well as evidence for the Practising Teacher Criteria. You can include all the evidence you want to show what you are doing, but without saying why, or what has manipulated or changed your thinking the evidence doesn't mean a whole lot.

The aim is to stay on top of my PRT site for the next year or so to make sure it doesn't become huge ordeal when it comes time to get registered!
