    Hi All,

    I was just hired as a Temporary Teacher and was informed by my P that I would be observed two times, she didn't say when exactly. She is also sending me on some professional development training as well. The regular teacher went out on maternity leave for the rest of the school year. I've never been a Temp teacher so I'm wondering why they are observing me if my contract is ending in June. It would be great if it lead up to a P1 contract. I'm fine with being observed, just wondering.:) Fortunately I taught this grade before and everyone seems really helpful and positive compared to my last school. Thoughts?

    TIA

    Are you in NJ? Here teachers are observed regularly whether temp or tenure track.

    No, I'm in California. Makes sense if you're taking over a classroom.

    They are also vetting you to decide if they want to rehire you for next year.

    Yes I would agree that they might have a position coming up and they want to see if you fit the bill!

    You can start by looking at all the free resources available. Unless they yanked them once they started selling it.

    Also, when I had an LTS I requested to be observed and it got me a job offer at the post ob.
