Hello, my name is Kristin Ink and I would like to welcome you to my electronic portfolio. It has always been a dream of mine to become a lifelong educator. I have a passion for teaching children and am excited for the opportunity to nurture and shape the lives and minds of young people. Currently, I am completing a Master of Science in Childhood Education at Ithaca College. I look forward to graduating in June 2010 and beginning a fulfilling career in education. The Ithaca College Masters program is a rigorous thirteen month program that is based on eight Standards for Effective Teaching. I invite you to browse through my portfolio to see how I have become proficient in these eight standards during the past year. Thank you for exploring my portfolio!
