The Employment Portfolio
Fanning, Michael C. P.
Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, v20 p77-91 2008
For nearly twenty years the educational community has utilized portfolios as a method of monitoring the growth and development of candidates earning certification as educators and as school leaders. Professors in the field of education have encouraged their students to share these portfolios with public school hiring officials. There is a belief by some individuals in the field that these documents provide evidence of a candidate's skills, knowledge, and personal characteristics. This article (1) examines the use of the employment portfolio, (2) compares and contrasts the views of professors in the field of education and hiring officials, and (3) offers suggestions for new teachers and school leaders on how to construct an employment portfolio which will be recognized and applauded by prospective employers. (Contains 2 tables.)
