We Are One Illinois - pension update

The Illinois legislature returns to Springfield today and will meet through Thursday, November 7.

Legislators continue to review an unfair, unconstitutional draft plan assembled by several members of the conference committee on pensions. What’s worse – there’s serious talk of slashing pensions even deeper than the draft plan.

Building Your Professional Portfolio

1. Why Create a Professional Portfolio?

• A professional portfolio offers the chance to reflect on your practice and collaborate with mentors and colleagues.

• Like other professionals, teachers and other certified staff need evidence of their growth and achievement over time. The professional portfolio is a vehicle for collecting and presenting that evidence.

• We encourage our students to select examples of their work over time to demonstrate how much they've learned, and it is best practice that we do the same.
