Early this morning, a random woman walked into my classroom. I said (very politely and welcoming), "Hi, may I help you." She introduced herself as a new board member and said she was just doing some walkthroughs. Anyway, I said, "Oh, okay--welcome!" I didn't have time to chat because I was in the middle of a lesson. Twenty minutes later, I finished my lesson and she was still there...watching. After we transitioned to the carpet, she left. She placed a post-it on my desk that said, "I saw some great things here. P.S. Beautiful classroom!" Personally, I thought she would've been escorted by one of my administrators. I also thought we should've gotten some sort of warning via email. Something simple like, "We've got a new board member who'll be visiting classrooms today." I dunno...maybe I'm asking for too much. The buzz around campus was, "Did you have some lady walk into your room and watch?" I guess some teachers didn't have time to speak with her when she walked in, so they had no clue who she was. Your thoughts?
