Like most of you, administrators and teachers in our school are working through a new teacher evaluation system that focuses on student achievement. While I believe our school has done a good job of adapting and embracing the new evaluation system, I know my role as an administrator has changed significantly.
As an assistant principal, I strive to build a trusting environment that minimizes teacher stress and reduces their sense of vulnerability. Ideally, creating such an environment will enable our school to tackle educational change.
But, have I created a trusting environment? Have I empowered teachers? Have I communicated effectively and openly? What about incorporating data to guide instruction?
To find out, I’ve asked teachers to complete an evaluation of me (I gave the same survey last year, but I’m curious to see how the results differ).
The principal evaluation survey will:
- guide me as I continually seek to improve
- assist me in determining whether I'm meeting my goals
- spurn discussion
- set the tone for and model reflection
Here’s a link to the survey. It's a Google form. Feel free to copy and share.
The survey is also shown below.
What questions am I missing?
