Teacher Observation and Follow-up Meeting

For the follow-up meeting, I would like the following prepared for our discussion:


  1. Samples of lesson plans for other areas not observed (for instance, if I am observing you during large group time, then please have available lesson plans from small group; center time; wellness; etc).
  2. Daily schedule (AM and PM)
  3. Samples of classroom assessments (checklists; anecdotal notes; portfolios; etc.)

Head Start days off for March

Just wanted to remind everyone of the days off this month:

March 21 through March 25--Spring Break week


Please be aware for the 11:00 dismissal.

Principal Leadership Survey

Please take time to participate in the Principal Leadership Survey. I will use the results to self-reflect on my performance. Please have this completed by Friday, April 8th.


All responses are confidential. I am unable to see who has submitted each response. I encourage you to add comments to those areas that you may rate as "strongly agree or strongly disagree."


Thank you!


(I will also send out a link to staff members for participation).
