My Own Most Valuable Lesson

December 13, 2016 in 2016 - London - No Comments

This is the twelfth part of my Reflection Series – a self-reflection of my year teaching in the UK.

What was the most valuable thing you learned this year?

I keep coming back to this same point, so I guess it’s the crux of my reflection.

The most valuable thing I learned this year was to stand up for myself and make myself heard. I won’t go into detail again, as I feel like I’ve done that so much in previous posts, but I cannot emphasise enough how important of a learning curve that has been for me.

We think that school is all about the students learning, but there is a true part of it that focuses on us teachers learning too. We learn about new content, different pedagogies, professional relationships, and our own selves as practitioners. It’s part of what I love about this job – I get to keep learning alongside my students!

You can read more, if you haven’t already done so, in previous posts from the End of Year Reflection Series.
