In my reflection, I also agree that we need to observe students to find out problems. Also similar is that I think research is valuable and teachers need to find new and fresh ways to teach and new strategies to use to help students. I will also continue to do research for new strategies. Having a partnership is also something important to have to recieve different viewpoints.

          Yes - even the activities I do most years need to be tweaked each time so that they are the right fit for the current children. I think that the research piece will be really helpful to help create... more

      You are right with learning that there is never an absolute answer in working with children. I wish I could say the same about your opinion with teachers always researching new ways and better ways... more

        It is hard when you are around a bunch of veteran teachers who never want to try anything new. I have been there before. I try to seek out the teachers who think out of the box and try new things. I... more
