6. Am I fulfilling that purpose in each of my interactions with students?
This is a difficult question and one that the students may answer differently than you do in your teacher self-assessment. Think about what you have done in the classroom to interact with the students and what was the outcome. Then give your students the opportunity to tell you what you convey about the purpose of your class and education as a whole. The answers could be very revealing and helpful in making changes to fulfill your self-determined purpose in the new year.
Teacher self-assessment is not an easy task, but one I hope that this guide will allow you to accomplish in the spirit of your continuing love of learning.
