In a Results Only Learning Environment, students are taught that reflection and self-evaluation are far more important than the judgment of a teacher. I want my students to be as hard as themselves and I am on myself.

I remind students constantly that I spend time daily reflecting on what took place in my classroom. “I evaluate myself, just as I evaluate you,” I tell them. I often discover things that didn’t go as I had planned.

Sometimes this means presenting them again another day in a different way. Other times it means discarding a lesson or activity completely. I firmly believe that this reflection and self-evaluation are the most important parts of making teachers better.

So, do you evaluate yourself? What does your reflection help you discover about teaching? Please share your thoughts.
