Professional Teaching E-Folio                                 

Welcome to Jonathan Praff's Electronic Portfolio. I teach English to speakers of other Languages (ESOL) at Pine Crest Elementary School and Chevy Chase Elementary School. I have the pleasure of working with students from all over the world who are eager to learn and hungry for academic success. 

I have had a wide range of teaching experiences thus far. Prior to my current two positions, I taught social studies at the high school level, Spanish at the high school level, and ESOL at the high school level. These positions have been at both public and private schools.

The six Montgomery County Public Schools standards serve as the framework for this portfolio. They are: 

I. Teachers are committed to students and their learning. 

II. Teachers know the subjects they teach and how to teach them to students. 

III. Teachers are responsible for establishing and managing student learning in a positive learning environment. 

IV. Teachers continually assess student progress, analyze the results, and adapt instruction to improve student achievement. 

V. Teachers are committed to continuous improvement and professional development. 

VI. Teachers exhibit a high degree of professionalism.
