Summary

An extensive body of knowledge is showing that the links between how teachers think and feel about themselves affects their performance. One coordinator of a new teacher program, comprised of teachers from preschool to high school, asks her new teachers to reflect by writing biography poetry. The coordinator used the poem framework at the beginning and end of the year. Her students appear to be more long-winded and have much more to say in June, and she does not let them see what they wrote in September until they have written their June sample. They are amazed that they have a tendency to be more classroom and student oriented in June than in September. Many of the new teachers felt that this exercise helped them see how far they had come; others centered on the concepts, and were surprised by their choice of words over the year. The teachers saw their growth, encouraged the students to grow, and felt good about their classrooms. (Contains 5 references. Appended are a biography poem form and new teacher reflections samples.)
