How can we become better teachers? One way is to reflect on our practice. There are times when we team teach or collaborate, but for most teachers our days are spent in our classroom with our students. This post provides 10 great suggestions on ways to reflect on your teaching. Below are a few of the ideas.

* Record video of your lessons (and then share the video with colleagues and have them provide feedback also).

* Ask the students for feedback (this may be a bit scary, but chances are they will have some insights that would assist you)

* Surround yourself with enthusiasm & possibility (all too often we see the negative...try going in the opposite direction and see what happens.

Seven additional ideas are found in this post. Check it out and make some notes for what you might try next year.
