6. My Reflection
    The reflection needs to include real examples of application of the
     learning in classroom practice, connections to student
     achievement, examples of what the teacher may do in the future,
     and any of the very significant “aha” learning moments that
     occurred while progressing through the Professional Growth Plan

    A quality reflection shows deep thinking that demonstrates
     significant growth/learning on the part of the teacher
