One of the opportunities for development of the ISFJ is that we can be reluctant to change and reflecting on last year, I think that this is something I should remain mindful of as I begin to plan for 2017. Just because something has worked in the past does not guarantee repeated success and as I get to know my learners' needs, I will have to differentiate activities based on their skill levels. Continuing to take risks with my planning and trying new things is a key focus of this year, especially as I am no longer in a full time team teaching position in the hub.
Latai tells me: "You can't pour from an empty cup" so I also will be mindful of my own wellbeing.
I will share these goals in a later post, however, thought the concept of knowing yourself first is key to how you plan to set up your classroom, relationships and routines for the school year. I imagine that I will be reflecting on this post more as I get into the year so will look forward to seeing how I am tracking further in the term.
Here is a brief snapshot of what the ISFJ personality trait means.
