Book Review: Becoming a Reflective Librarian and Teacher

Donna Church


Reale opens her thin volume by introducing the notion that learning doesn’t come just from experts but from our own experiences, which are a foundation for our learning and teaching. She notes that reflective practice helps us understand not only our world and our place in it, but also how to navigate the “conflation” of our personal and professional selves (xviii).

In the early chapters, Reale explores the need to be reflective both for our own practice and also as a means of inspiring reflective learners. Chapter 3 specifically looks at the necessity and benefit of a reflective practice that allows us to address our doubts, insecurities, frustrations as well as our triumphs and discoveries.
