As I join with our principals in preparing summary evaluations, I find the respect I have gained over the year for their commitment to TPEP growing. Through observations and conversations with all principals and one assistant, I have seen and heard the commitment they have made to be in classrooms and collect evidence to support their judgments. This has been a year of new learning for all of us as we try new structures to support prioritizing time to be in classrooms and use new forms to collect and share data.
I would be remiss if I didn't also share my appreciation and respect for teachers on comprehensive who are giving of their time to provide evidence and the increased feedback conversations that accompany multiple classroom observations. Thank you for your commitment and support of our learning as we find ways to make this required process part of our collaborative culture.
