Classroom Observations

26 Feb

Even though when are all competent and experienced teachers I am sure many of us feared being observed. Even though I have completely embraced Marzano, I feared being evaluated on my implementation. Even though I spend hours creating interactively dynamic multimedia presentations that my students LOVE, I feared having evaluators see them unfold for the class.

I don’t want to come across as big headed students really enjoy my class. Even though I love the feeling I get when I am “on stage” with my students, and they are completely engrossed in the lessons we are learning, where there is no world outside of my room anymore, and it’s just them and me on the most amazing journey towards enlightenment and growth and I know we are going places we have never been, I feared the thought of that intimate moment being observed and recorded.

I once feared the observation but in the last two years I have changed. Observations have changed. It is no longer about being ticked off. It is about popping in. Looking for various teaching techniques or management skills.
