The early childhood classroom provides many opportunities for the practice of skills associated with self-regulation of behavior. Self-regulation is a skill that is necessary for optimal success in both personal and professional development. The opportunity to examine the effect of personal dispositions and values on the design of the physical, social-emotional, and cognitive environments, allows teachers to recognize their role in providing support for the emergence of self-regulation. The purpose of this capstone is a workshop for teachers which allows for reflection on current practice and values, and opportunities to link practice to theory and research. Hawaiian cultural values are included in the workshop to serve as a framework for the participants to use as they reflect on individual personal and professional values.
