Our main goal from the outset of this new teacher evaluation system has been to create more conversations around teaching and learning. Please keep this in mind as we head into the unchartered waters of “unannounced observations” in Burlington. This is not intended to be a game of “gotcha” where evaluators walk into teachers classrooms when they least expect it. This is intended to be an opportunity for all of us to share examples of the Burlington Public Schools Great Eight in action. We look forward to sharing in those discussions!
Stay tuned for the next post which will share a few of the logistics of Unannounced Observations.
