Teacher as Researcher

Kumashiro describes three different types of teachers: teacher as professional, teacher as researcher, and teacher as learned practitioner. I believe that teacher as researcher best describes me. I believe that teachers never stop learning and that it is our responsibility to learn something new each and every day. The students we teach are constantly changing and growing and a teacher who does not grow alongside their students is ineffective. I also believe that reflection is an important part of becoming a teacher. After teaching a lesson  an educator must take the time to consider what worked in the lesson, what didn`t work and how they can improve it.
