Teacher evaluations can be positive and empowering experiences. They can create a culture of collegiality, growth and respect. Evaluations can facilitate meaningful and nurturing relationships between teachers and administrators. We've developed a page of resources that will help you achieve overall school success through better teacher evaluations.
Effective teacher assessments and policies lead to better supervisory relationships, improved teacher morale, enhanced classroom experiences and positive school culture. Claude guides administrators, helping them to enhance their evaluation skills in all aspects of teacher performance. He can also guide the development of policy, assessment and observation guides, and report templates.
More than being merely judgements on performance, evaluations also facilitate frank communication, helping the head to assess and enhance relationships with faculty, staff, trustees, parents and students. In addition, the process can assist in the identification of areas which each of these constituencies considers the head’s performance to be strong; and those, if any, in which they would like to see change.
