Thoughts on Becoming an Expert

  • thumbnail for Brian Gibbs
  • Gibbs will identify and discuss critical elements of professionalism that young teachers will want to consider on their journey toward becoming an expert in the eyes of students, parents and administrators. Topics will include demeanor, grooming, punctuality, preparation, attitude, communication, concern for the big picture, and goals. Examples of pedagogical concepts requiring expert knowledge will be discussed without advocating specific methodology. Audience questions will be encouraged.
