Remember– these are your reflective thoughts about you as a health teacher now that you have learned more about teaching, and teaching health. There are no “right” or “wrong” answers to the questions below. You are simply capturing in writing what has changed since the beginning of the semester. You are describing who you are and what you believe at this moment in time by reflecting back on any changes you may make in your approach to teaching and learning for children’s health as a result of your experiences in this class.

Note: The instructions for this exercise are written to be intentionally broad. This exercise is intended to provide you the freedom to deeply reflect on what emerges as most significant and important to you.
