Description

The 'art of teaching', or the way in which we engage with children and families, is ultimately determined by our identity as educators. Recognising and appreciating the diversity of personal and professional dispositions within our teams, we have an opportunity to turn a mirror on ourselves to examine:

  • Who are we as teachers or educators? What do we stand for? What are our personal dispositions that impact our decisions about how we interact with children and support their ongoing learning and development?
  • How do our dispositions, values and beliefs affect these decisions and daily interactions?  
  • Under what circumstances are our dispositions silenced?  Why?   
  • How can we ensure that the dispositions we hold as sacred drive our planning and daily interactions with children? 

Exploring responses to each of these questions will ensure that we do more than simply profess our values, including these in all aspects of our work with children, families and teams.
