Reflection isn’t such a bad word

I really enjoyed this 6×6 writing experience of sharing my thoughts with others. I never blogged before. It gave me a time to reflect about the students I have worked with over the years and to give life to my experiences.

I remember back in the early 1990’s, during my last semester of college prior to student teaching, everything we did in our education block had to be reflected upon. We had to write reflections on our lesson plans or what we gleaned from a particular writing or how a classmate conducted her lesson…. I began to really hate the word “reflection.” One day, my instructor told us to reflect on all our reflections. That did it! I rebelled and didn’t do it!

Now 25 years later, I think I enjoy reflecting. Thanks for the opportunity.
