Consider your questions to others

The idea of having or being a Mentor has been discussed for many years, but as a young Profession Early Childhood Educators have been embarking and considering this practice with more intention over the last decade.

This idea of having a critical friend, someone who can hold us up yet also challenge us to dig deeper about our practice is essential to our reflective practice.

This has led to exploring the questions I would of wanted some one to ask me early on in my career.

  1. What is your own goodness of fit? What does this mean to you?
  2. What do you want to know more about?
  3. Where will you find your passion? Your passion for children, families and our profession?
  4. Finally, always be ready and able to consider and answer ” Why am I doing what I am doing?”

What questions come to mind for you?

  1. I’ve been in the field for about 14 years and I still need to ask myself these questions. I find ways to ignite my passion when I venture out of the comfort of my own organization and work with other educators from across the community. There are so many people out there that have so much to offer and can help you get excited about your work.
