    Had first offical walk through yesterday. Got online form feedback today. "Routines are established and followed" wasn't checked off. Everything else for class environment was. P also put reflection questions about my class management philosophy and strengths/weaknesses. I'm so upset I can't eat. What to do from here?

    No teacher on their first walkthrough will ever get perfect marks. Take it as a chance to reflect and grow.

    If they don't see it they don't check it. That doesn't mean you don't have it in place. It's just that the evaluator did not see it clearly or felt that it was not enough. Learn from it and move on. It could have been worse.

    If you have a conversation with others or the admin, just act all excited to be working to improve your classroom management and can't wait to improve your craft.

    Talk to your admin. about it. In my school we have 2 evals a year. All of the components need to be checked off between the 2 evals. Many times things are not checked off after the first time around simply because they have to leave something to observe the second time they come in. Many times, our observers are nice and leave some of the "easier" things to find for the second observation.

    Reflect on it. Don't be sick about it. Even if you were PERFECT, your admin needs to find places for you to consider growth or reflection ... because, well, no teacher is PERFECT all day, everyday.
