Congratulations!

1. Please observe what works and what doesn't. Don't reinvent the wheel by making changes that don't need to be made.

2. DON'T punish the whole school because a few teachers are making bad choices. Talk to them and fix it with them. Our school quit allowing jeans because a few teachers were wearing them on days they weren't supposed to.

3. DON'T move veteran teachers unless THEY are on a plan of improvement and just can't handle the grade they're in now. HUGE problem in my school. Our P is moving veteran teachers from grades they prefer because they're good, rather than mentoring the younger teachers who need to get better.

4. Explain why you do what you do. If you're asking teachers to document what they're doing to show growth because county office told you to do it, then tell the teachers. Otherwise it looks like you're just giving busy work.


I wish my current administrator would read this.
