Familiarity with the practice of teaching is essential to effective teacher development. Witnessing meaningful teaching first-hand, observing master teachers, and reflecting on the actions, decisions, and artistry behind good teaching can bring you further along on your journey toward becoming a better teacher yourself than simply reading and researching ever could.
