Portfolios have often been used as a way for teachers to monitor and assess their students' progress, but this book picks up on the current trend of using portfolios to assess teachers themselves as part of their degree requirements. As a professional development tool, portfolios are also useful for classroom teachers in evaluating their practice, and in showcasing their skills and accomplishments for use in interviews.
Both theoretical and practical, the book addresses issues and mechanics related to process and product, instruction and guidance techniques, the role of reflection, and assessment strategies. With concrete examples, rubrics, tips, and exercises, this book will provide a step-by-step guide to creating a professional teaching portfolio.

There are days when we all wonder how we have spent our time. We begin to blame ourselves for wasting the entire day, considering the unnecessary details when we ought to focus on the most important things. At the end of the day, we feel we haven't done anything at all. Most of the time, the cause would be because we have procrastinated to do the major things, and only focus on the less stressful and less important things. For me, it got so bad I would spend the entire day reading emails, drinking coffee, chatting on social media, texting random contacts, and before you know it, it's evening already, and I'd be like 'what the heck have I done today?' I'd then encourage myself to do it first thing tomorrow morning only to repeat the same pattern through the next day.

Because in here in lies the exact blueprint you need to overcome that lifestyle forever.
