… through reflection on AITSL standards at the Highly Accomplished Teacher level.
In my visit to Good Shepherd Lutheran College last week, working with the three campuses to support an inquiry focus on the teaching and learning of mathematics, I was excited to see two teachers from one of the campuses (ELC teacher and year 5 teacher) developing their capabilities in relation to the AITSL teacher standards striving for HAT status.
It has been wonderful to reflect on how they have immersed themselves as learners in effective teaching and learning of mathematics, engaging in professional reading and mathematics, exploring a variety of resources, trialing and reflecting on changes to their practice, collaborating with colleagues across campuses and planning for ways to support the learning of their colleagues within their own campus.
I was privileged to be able to observe them with their students and to reflect with them later. Fantastic professional discussion! The most significant evidence of impact however is what I saw and heard from their students; ownership of and desire for learning, deep critical and creative thinking, and learners engaging as mathematicians!
