Reflective Practitioner

There is immeasurable value in being a reflective practitioner as a professional educator. Reflecting on a daily basis is such a tool for teachers to grow in all aspects of the profession. A teacher should always reflect on lessons taught, student response, decisions made, challenges and successes. I have made this practice a part of my routine, and I am so pleased to see the growth that I have made in my recent months of beginning my teaching career as a student teacher. Reflection encourages recognition of growth, and flexibility for change, and I believe that this is critical to teaching success.
