I was recently in conversation with a young teacher at our preschool, she said to me:
"I thought I knew it all. I thought I treated boys and girls equally."
She went on to say.
"Since I started to work in this preschool I have realised that I have so much to learn about myself.
How I am over and over again repeating patterns where I divide how I act with the children and what I think regarding gender.
Recently I caught myself pointing out a motorcycle and just turned to the boys.
I stopped myself and thought 'I am doing it again. Why am I just turning to the boys?'"
