Ingrid talks about reflective practice (0:42)

I invite a lot of language and English, I have a lot of patience with the children to do code switch and put it into perspective. My assistant teacher is – is a traditional owner and I’ve put the – the – the white fella way of what we’re going to do in the classroom together, but I’ve also invited her to by my advisor.  I’ve asked her to be my advisor.  So after every day we sit down together and I’ll say to Mavis, “What do you reckon?  How can I do that better?  You tell me what you think.”  Or I tell her what part of the day I struggled with, and “What do you reckon?  Tell me?  Because I want you to tell me, because I want to be the best teacher I possibly can be.” 

You don’t know everything. 

And the latest thing they teach at university, from my experience through BIITE (Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education) is that reflection of yourself - very hard, very hard to be critical of yourself.  But once you get how, to understand how to do it, you know. And sometimes it's very hard to hear it from other people.
