Teaching young children is complex work. While you manage the day-to-day events that unfold in your classroom, you also have to keep up with the demands of assessment and documentation. With all of these challenges, how can you maintain the equally important tasks of encouraging children's curiosity and supporting their joy of learning? How can you sustain your own curious mind and joyful spirit in your work? Reflecting with other teachers in a community of practice can strengthen your ability to respond to the children in your classroom and share meaningful experiences with them.
