Making the Teacher Evaluation Process “Worth-It” through Student-focused Observations and Conversations
Session Description: Supporting teachers in using teaching and student-learning “in action” data to grow professional practice is the most challenging AND important job that an instructional leader has.

Build your learning leadership toolkit so that it includes skills and strategies for making the evaluation process “worth-it” for all stakeholders…especially our students.
