Knowing ourselves enables us to teach others

After over 20 years of teaching, I believe that the best way to increase my capacity to help others is to learn more about myself. To ensure successful learning, I include these four actions in weekly lesson plans, because knowing ourselves enables us to help others.
Look for and document changes in your own learning
Plan to learn while you teach
Reflect on moments of success
Make your perceptions of students visible to yourself
