Staff Evaluation Information:
The observation process is a wonderful way for us to get to know each other. I love visiting teachers because I learn something new with each visit. The goal of the observation process is to enhance your thoughts and commitments to improving your classroom practice. The observation is the "vehicle" that will "drive" our instructional dialogue. Tenured teachers will be observed by a supervisor one time per year unless involved in the Circle of Friends life-long learning group. Non-tenured teachers will be observed three times per year.
A pre-observation conference will be scheduled approximately 10 days before the observation. During this conference we will discuss the different components of your lesson. At this time you can mention specific details you would like me to observe and/or provide feedback.
A post-observation conference will be scheduled within 15 days of your observation. At this time we will collaborate with each other to talk about your lesson. I am not here to judge you but simply describe what was observed during my stay. Please feel free to bring your own descriptions as well.
