I have been blessed the past few years with an administrator that wasn't super tight about wanting "proof" of effectiveness. He walked through my classroom frequently and knows I am a good teacher and a hard worker. However, he is retiring this month...Ugh. It hit me pretty hard that it was time to get my stuff together and come up with a system for keeping track of my worth as a teacher, before the next principal gets on board, with possibly much higher expectations.
After speaking with a colleague and good friend of mine (in a holy shit, he's retiring session) we thought it would be a good idea to put together a binder of some kind to keep track of everything for teacher evaluation purposes. I have learned in life that a well-organized binder can solve many, many problems (and just makes me feel good).
This conversation inspired creation!! I created a 7-tab binder and included some editable forms for keeping track of things like PD, community involvement, student interventions, feedback from parents, etc. I also included some teacher reflection forms. In our district we follow the Marzano model for teacher evaluation, so I focused the reflection pages on Domain 1: Classroom Strategies & Behaviors (9 Design Questions & 40 areas for reflection).
Here are the tabs that are inside and examples of some of the forms:
Of course, this is all available at my TPT store. I have made this a value at only $5 for over 50 pages. You can find it here:
If you do, I will certainly follow you right back!! Hope summer is off to a spectacular start! As you can see my mind is still a bit jumbled with school stuff!! A curse or a blessing?....The jury is out on that one! Love and peace to you and thank you for popping in to see what's up!
