Reflecting on your teaching

Co-teaching requires continuous self-development and putting yourself out of your comfort zone.

To develop yourself, it is important to reflect continuously, evaluate your work, and tolerate the feeling that everything is always unfinished.

Though you will talk daily while collaborating, it is smart to reserve extra time to discuss your goals every once in awhile, so that you have a clear picture of what is going on and what both of you can do to improve your work. During the school year, it is best to stop and reassess the practices and goals of co-teaching, for instance by meeting once during the fall and once during the spring for a thorough discussion for self-improvement.
