This has been a foundational concept in my life, and I agree that knowing ourselves: knowing our motivations, preferences, reactions and tendencies, makes us more effective as teachers and more available as human beings.

Knowing Ourselves Enables us to Teach Others

By Rhonda Bondie on October 5th, 2012

“Educators are always on the lookout for new strategies and materials that are the keys to improved learning for all students. However, the action that will likely have the greatest impact on teaching can’t be purchased or taught to teachers by another. 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.”
