I'm thankful that Mike Graham took me up on my invitation to write a Good Teaching is L.I.F.E reflection for my blog. Mike is a respected teacher within our physical education network and has loads of experience that he brings to the table. Although I have never met Mike personally, I know that he is a hard worker and is extremely dedicated to pushing our subject area forward.
In his reflection he shares his personal thoughts related to the 4 cornerstones of my Good Teaching is L.I.F.E model. I'd like to thank Mike for taking the time to write up his reflection and share it with me. I meant to get it up sooner! Enjoy this guest post, I think that you will find a lot of take away value.

Mike's Good Teaching is L.I.F.E Reflection

I personally believe that every individual need purposeful response to learning. A teacher must try to provide slots or openings to his students to gain that response as much as possible in non-identical ways. It is not only applicable to the students but also for the teachers who need a worthwhile feedback to the leader and grows as an effective teacher. Basically, reflection has a number of angles and involves linking a contemporary experience to the prior learning. And honestly, I agree with Mike because I also feel that if you receive proper teaching, then it will definitely reflect in your life. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful thought.
