It’s only my first week back with my new students and I have
already managed to catch a cold. Sore throat, sniffles, and lots of coughing—what
a way to start the new school year!
Aside from being under the weather, the year is in full
swing with lots to do. Planning, scheduling of services and meetings, as well
as getting to know my new students. Although my plate seems full already, I
just received an e-mail this past weekend requesting my schedule for
observations and teacher evaluations. Which leads me to open up the discussion
about teacher evaluations and how they work in different districts and some of
the challenges new teachers face during this process.
