A Different Take On Observations

We are starting a new practice starting 3rd quarter. Here's the deal:


We ask that you observe two other teachers each quarter. It is meant for you to get ideas, but also give some helpful feedback to the teachers you observe.


Since growth starts where your comfort zone ends, we ask that you don't simply choose to observe the teacher with whom you're chummy or the one in a similar grade level, but also an outlier, like a Pre-K teacher for a 7th grade teacher, and/or the teacher whom you might not know very well. The observation can be for any lesson, and we ask that you do a follow up conversation with that teacher about the observation within the week.


Please let Mr. Solis know when you have set up the observation, and after you have met.
