Creating A Licensure Portfolio
Students discussing their portfolios at a portfolio
Whether you are an elementary or secondary
candidate for teacher licensure, a graduate or an undergraduate student,
you are required by the State of Vermont Department of Education to
complete a licensure portfolio.
Typically the Portfolio is completed at the
end of the Student Teaching experience and is a collection of evidence in
six "Entries" required by the Vermont Department of Education that demonstrate and attest
skills as a teacher. The portfolio is assessed and graded by a SMC Education
Department faculty member
and is used in conjunction with student teacher supervisor observations to
recommend the student to the VTDOE for licensure,
Requirements for several parts, Entry 1 and Entry
II can be completed in junior level courses prior to the Student Teaching
Students currently have the option of completing an ePortfolio or the more traditional paper portfolio.
