In this article we consider the phenomena of reflection and educational reflection as a basis for the competence of educators to manage their behavior, as well as the skills to interact with the personality of the students and reveal the technological side of the educational process. The French economist and politician Jacques Delors justifies the four basic guiding principle – pillars of education, in conjunction with the concept of lifelong learning and education in the 21st century. The four main pillars of modern education, requiring the formation of four main groups of competences are: learning to know, learning to act (learning to do), learning to live together, learning to be. The effectiveness of a good teacher is a set of multiple knowledge, reflexive skills and competences, which are constantly developed and enriched. Especially significant from them, in our opinion, are having respect for others, empathy and congruence. The accumulated practical experience of teachers is not a sufficient condition for professional development. Only the constant reflection, analysis and transformation of their own experience has allowed them to develop their skills.
