This year the new wave of observations will require every teacher to state the area they want to improve, the way they intend to improve it, and the follow up date for the second observation where the improvement can be seen. I get the mindset. Really. I just have so many problems with this. It becomes part of your employment record. This applies to admin as well. So, my first thought for an answer is sarcastic, and not going to be able to be used. (I want to improve answering meaningless, inane questions. I think I'll be done in June.) So....what can I possibly say? Is there anyone else doing this? How did you handle it? Please help, the clock is ticking. (Our entire school staff will be observed, top to bottom, many times this year. It will always look like this.) Help!
