I have the opportunity to peek inside our classrooms and see the work our teachers and students are doing each day. My visits to the classrooms are part of our professional growth and evaluation model. As part of this model, we actively observe our teachers through formal observations, classroom walkthroughs, and feedback. I see teachers having their students create connections in their learning, develop strategies to use when they may feel stuck, and dig deeper in building their understanding.
