Yes, ask for specifics!

Something that jumped out at me is that this is your first observation where you were given suggestions. Our P is our instructional leader, and it's his responsibility to help us all grow, no matter how much experience we have or where we are in our teaching. Maybe his supervisor criticized HIM for not giving effective feedback.

I've agonized over sentences in evaluations, and most of them I was misinterpreting, and my P reworded or took them out for me. (I can be a bit high maintenance!). But taking his words that are making you uncomfortable and asking for specific examples/directions on how to improve is a great idea. If he can direct you, great. If not, let it go. All out classrooms have different vibes because we're different people. You need to be yourself, but there's always room to grow. I say once I think I know all there is to know about teaching, it's time for me to retire. I put my ego aside long ago, and I welcome ways to refine my craft.

Good luck- keep us posted!
