Purpose: I chose this artifact because it represents the scope of my findings during my inquiry. The link above is an attachment to a PowerPoint that discusses the highlights of my inquiry work and the thoughts I had going into my research. I discuss the commonalities and understanding from my collection of data. It connects to my passion about what I wanted to explore as a level of inquiry in terms of how teacher voice can have a significant impact in educational communities.
Teacher Fellow Competency: This artifact relates to my learning and growth as a teacher as researcher. The artifact details the phases of my project and generally what I was able to discover through my inquiry. I gathered data in the forms of surveys, interviews, and focus groups. I synthesized this data to determine the impact of my work. I was able to share this data with my school community and educational community at the International Teacher Leader Conference.
Skills: This artifact allowed me to refine my skills as a presenter and researcher. I often thought throughout this journey that being a teacher researcher was in a way inconsequential because teachers are teachers and researchers are researchers but being able to marry the two during this Fellowship opened my mind to the power of a teacher being a researcher.
