In an effort to strengthen our Leadership Team, (and in turn, all teachers), our Principal has authorized that the 3 Lead Teachers on Lead Team become "Peer Observers." We will be trained in the same format she was trained, though our Observations will not be tied to Teacher Effectiveness. While the training on Peer Observations is a huge resource in strengthening us as Lead Teachers, she is also designating 30 minutes each week for each Lead Teacher to be covered by Admin so that we can pop-in to observe, provide feedback to, and support teachers on our teams. My teammates are so thrilled I will have the opportunity to regularly observe in their classrooms!
