One of the critical characteristics of a professional multicultural educator is the ability to reflect on issues that concern young children, their families, and the impact of classroom practices on their lives.

Reflection allows you to critically look at your own practices and identify ways to enhance your professional skills as a multicultural early childhood educator.
