Three Insightful Reflection Questions By Joey Feith
Wow, things have been a bit hectic and crazy over the past few weeks with lots of things going on in my life. From teaching and coaching to leading workshops and doing reports, the time is flying by. In the past week, I made public the fact that I have decided that this is going to be my last year of teaching. Making the decision to give up something that I truly love and am passionate about was no easy task, but I feel that I’m ready for a new challenge in my life.
I feel that this new chapter will be a rewarding one as I am aiming to work with teachers, in their own setting, helping to enhance the programs that they run. As well I intend to run a few workshops over the year. All exciting stuff but a huge leap into the unknown.
I wrote a blog post on PYP PE with Andy earlier this week explaining some of the reasons for my decision. I have had huge support from my colleagues, from the educators I am connected on Twitter with, and from friends and family around the world. My good buddy Joey Feith, founder of ThePhysicalEducator.com left me a warm and encouraging message of support on my blog that I read the other morning before school. In the comment, Joey asked me 3 very insightful reflective questions that immediately got the wheels of thought spinning quickly in my head. Massively important questions that I really need to reflect on as I move closer and closer to the end of the year.
I’d like to share Joey’s three questions with my readers and take a stab at answering them as honestly as I can. Reflection is such a huge part of my practice, so I couldn’t think of 3 better questions to ask me at this point in my life. Thank you Joey for these questions. So here we go...
I love the fact that as well as congratulating and supporting you in your new ADventures and ventures, Joey also realised the importance of getting you to dig deeper and focus your thinking around these questions. So valuable to have a supporter that is not just a 'yes!' person but also challenging your thinking and pushing you forwards to be better. All of us need one of these by our side.
