Your reflections should be recorded so that you have information at hand for improving lessons, focusing on pupils’ progression, giving feedback to parents and feeding into the School Development Plan. This will help you as a teacher next class, next week, next year.
Select a style of note-taking that suits you and will be useful to you. Your notes can be hand -written, on your phone, on post-its – whatever suits you and is easily retrieved.
Be proactive in your personal journey and look at ways to upskill yourself. Identify your strengths and areas for development. Attend webinars, ask to work with senior teachers and coordinators.
Reflective Practice is continuous throughout your career. Build up the habit of keeping track.
