Reflections at Half Time

24 Jun

As you may have picked up I believe in self-reflection as a means toward growth and development. The blog is a great form of professional development. No flash lunch though. Additionally, through self-reflection we will better understand who we are as educators, as well as how our actions are aligning with our beliefs. Regardless of your position or role in education, here are some questions I found to ask yourself halfway during the year.

1) – How and what are you doing to build strong and enduring relationships with your students and staff?

2) – What are you doing very well? Where are you seeing a lot of success? Do you know why…?

3) – What are you not doing very well? Where are you not seeing a lot of success? Do you know why…?

4) – What are you doing to improve your craft? How are you ensuring that you will be better able to address your students’ needs in 2014 than you were in 2013?

5) – In your absence, can your students and staff continue learning and growing? Do they absolutely need you to continue?

6) – Do your students and staff know the expectations? Do they have a part in establishing those expectations?

7) – Do you give your students and staff enough praise for the great things they are doing? Are you filling the buckets of others?

8) – Do you practice what you preach? Do your actions speak louder than your words?

9) – What is the biggest mistake you made (educationally speaking) last year? What did you learn from this experience?

10) – If you never saw your students and staff ever again, what do you think they would say about you?
