Description

A teacher is a critical figure in the lives of many children, partially due to the sheer amount of time they spend with their students compared to other figures in the children’s lives, but also due to the fact that a good teacher can do a lot of good, while a bad teacher can do a lot of damage. The experiences a teacher has with their own teachers during childhood can greatly inform the kind of teacher they become, their teaching philosophy, and their identity as an educator. The purpose of this self-study is to learn more about how my own formative school experiences impacted my current teaching practice and how reflecting on those experiences and their impacts can help me improve the quality of their practice and become a more self-aware and effective educator.
