It’s a process that you’re building to, and when you take the time to build with your teachers, there’s a lot of uneasiness and, squeamishness — but when you take that time to build with them, the end product is going to be beautiful. Just to have my teachers willing to try and have the conversations like, “Hey, what did you do with your goal and scale? What kind of feedback did you get on that? What can I do differently?” is fantastic.
I’ve gone into so many classrooms this year and my AP will go along with me because we’re learning to do the observations together. I’ll go in and I’ll just look over at her and go, “I feel like I’m a proud dad sitting here watching these people just grow right in front of my eyes.” It’s impressive.
