Good Luck P, although I know you don't need it!
Gentlemen, I totally appreciate the grins that your comments have brought to me this morning! Imagine, P with her own groupies, another reason for me to be jealous of her voice.
Evaluation I am grateful that our department scored the AP that knows us well and just wants us to give him the proof he needs so that he can recommend us in the highest level categories. I had almost everything with me that he needed. I have to copy a few more "Proofs" and then I will be done.
It looks as if I will be given a three out of four or "Effective Teacher" That is good enough for me. We are all just learning the system this year.
We've had those kind of evaluations in place in Ohio for several years. Most are like you and say its BS.
Sounds like the start of a good week for you.
we have a fairly new evaluation system as well.. most years is no biggie, then every three years you have to provide artifacts as "proof".

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
We used to be on an every three year system. In the in between years we had to do Teacher growth projects. Now, 5 administrators have to evaluate all 175 teachers every year. Two full period in class visits, 3 full period one on one meetings. It is an insane amount of time and paperwork.
I'm so glad I didn't go into teaching........... I have the highest respect for good teachers!!! They not only put up with disrespectful, undisciplined children - but they also put up with all the administrative BS to PROVE they are being effective at their job! You have my utmost respect! All of you teachers deserve rewards.
