As a 3rdyear teacher, I have grown to realize the greatest aspect that influences my pedagogy is reflective practice. Reflection is an integral component of both teaching and learning. Setting goals and self-reflection allow me to analyze my day to day classroom processes and make improvements. Regardless of the flourishing benefits of reflective practice, reflection is often deemed a tedious task that many teachers avoid, not only because it is time consuming, making itunpractical to write after the experience has been completed; but also because they may not wantto ruminate themselves on past experiences which may be disagreeable for them (Kuswandono, 2017). After completing Scholastic’s Reaching All Students self-assessment, I created 3 new S.M.A.R.T. goals for myself. SMART goals commonly draw upon established principles of goodpractice from goal-setting theory and engage the learner’s commitment (Day & Tosey, 2011).S.M.A.R.T. goal #1.
