Trillium Montessori Talks

Jun 7 2022 • 22 mins

There are two major paths towards self improvement: external feedback and self-reflection. While external feedback happens naturally in most classrooms, self-reflection is a skill you have to make time for and practice. When you do, you’ll improve your craft, connect more deeply with your students, and feel more confident in your abilities.

In this episode, we’re talking about the power of self-reflection for the Montessori teacher. We’re explaining how to practice daily reflection and turn it into intentional action. We’re sharing some questions you can ask yourself, and we’re explaining how to model the practice of self-reflection for your students.
