The Reflective Teacher is an Effective Teacher

Reflection has always been an important part of my routine as a wife, mother, teacher, and principal.  Reflection doesn’t just happen at the end of a  lesson or experience, it should happen at the beginning and during as well. When we enter a situation in life or a lesson in the classroom with intentional thought our outcomes are most likely to be more successful.

Although I continued to be reflective last school year through various strategies, I did not purposefully talk about it with my staff as much as I have done in the past.  This year I want to be intentional again about it.  After reading Pete Hall and Alisa Simera’s book

  I was reminded again about the power of reflection and its capacity for success in the classroom.  If you haven’t been reflective in the past, please become intentional about it.  Your students will benefit from it and you will be more effective.  AND we all know the number one contributing factor to success in the classroom is the teacher.    Are you ready to take the challenge?


As always, be joyful in your thoughts!
