Smith News and Notes


Principal Cohort at Smith Tuesday

My principal cohort will be walking through Smith Tuesday, Feb. 2nd from about 8:30-10:30. We will be looking for evidence of the following in classrooms: 1. Level of student talk vs. teacher talk; 2. Evidence of student writing in all content areas; 3. Use of engaging strategies by teachers. These 3 items are things you have been working on all year long through PLC and team planning. You may have 1-5 principals visit your classroom, or none at all. It just depends on the schedule for the morning. Principals from the following Alief campuses will be with me: Horn, Best, Boone, Klentzman and Olle.
