by the help of their friends or even by themselves.
**Future Growth & Next Steps: Think about your future teaching, list three goals to help you improve
upon your existing knowledge and skills and your teaching.
As I continue working in the preschool environment, I will keep on practicing conflict negotiations with
children and learning which tools work best for each child.
I will continue learning how to use open-ended questions with children and having plenty of interactions
with children to form relationships with these children.
I have learned how important it is to form relationships with children during my student teaching. It has
helped me solve conflicts with children knowing how they act around the classroom. I think keeping a
photo journal in the future would help me catch interest of the children and seeing how to further help
them with conflicts.
