Write a brief self-assessment of your teaching as it is now. Take an honest look at yourself as a teacher: your qualifications, your styles, your effectiveness, your affinities and fears. Indicate your experience and your strengths. Also consider where you would like to be as a teacher in a year or two and what you plan to try in order to achieve that goal. Identify what is unique about your teaching and express how that fulfills your purposes in teaching. Feel free to acknowledge your models and mentors in shaping your teaching ideals.
These statements should be one page or shorter.
