    I have been working on my online portfolio for a few days now. It is still under construction but I would love for anyone who has a minute to look it over. Thank you in advance!

    Never seen an online portfolio- pretty cool! Maybe I'll work on one- did you have to pay for the site? I think it looks good.

    Also, are you allowed to use student faces?

    I had to get permission from the parents to use their pictures but I also tried to use pictures where they were not directly looking at the camera. I did have to pay for the website but I think it was only $25-$30 for a year which is fine with me if it helps to get a job!!

    I use wix.com, which is free and easy for beginners to use.

    By the way, your portfolio looks great. Very professional. Lots of pictures. It has all the common elements. It's definitely a plus to have one.

    Very cool! Do you have a way to track hits on the site? Just curious as to how often you think principals and HR people check it out.

    You can find widgets for website views and add the html code onto your site. That will keep track of views but you have to take into account your own.

    My last job interview I was told the hiring committee viewed my portfolio because I included the URL on my resume.

    That looks great! Easy to navigate, and really gives a snapshot of your experiences and educational beliefs.

    Love it! I wonder how many principals will look at this? My only wish or worry is that when I was in an interview, and they asked me a question, let's say about guided reading, I turned right to the page in my portfolio and showed them examples. How will you be able to utilize your portfolio in an interview?

    I have a physical portfolio as well! My online portfolio is merely a tool to help get an interview. : )

    Same. I made a hard copy and then I'm just sure to remind them that everything in it can be found on my site.
