I wanted to revise my teaching portfolio. I decided to think backwards and start from what the goals of my portfolio were and then see what I could do to achieve them:
- A site for me to “sell” myself, if I ever go on the job market.
- A site for me to archive the evolution of my teaching career. My blog acts as that, in a haphazard way. The portfolio sorts through the detritus and organizes it.
- A site for me to express my personality and teaching style.
What I came up falls short of the third piece, but I think it is successful on the two parts.

And just so you know, my Teaching Philosophy as is now is actually just filler. I mean, I believe all that, but I haven’t written a formal one yet.
