Overview

Improve your performance and significantly increase your students' achievement levels. Brown and Irby offer you the hands-on, practical information you need to create, maintain, and use your professional development portfolio. This information can help you document your progress and pinpoint your strong points as well as weak ones, maintain your focus on student performance, encourage your teachers to develop their own professional growth plans, improve your school leadership performance, evaluate your current and future professional development needs, and enhance your possibilities for career advancement. Although the value of portfolios for teachers and students has long been widely acknowledged, only recently have administrators begun to recognize the great potential the administrative portfolio holds for improving schools. Your portfolio can become a tool for your own reflective practice. In addition, share it with colleagues who aspire to administration. Let it remind you of where your career is going - and how far you've come.
