Evaluators
In your schools, who are the evaluators when it comes to TKES? Do they follow the same protocol? Are some unnecessarily harsh. I have heard of many teachers teaching and doing the same things with widely varying results. How do you handle evaluations where you may feel there is misunderstandings?

We have a principal and one assistant principal. Last year they both evaluated teachers very differently. The principal gave multiple ratings of 4 to teachers, but the assistant principal did not give out ratings of 4. The evaluation process is very subjective. I requested a meeting with both of them to ask for specific suggestions in areas I need to improve.

We have two assistant principals and one principal that complete the TKES process on the teachers. Every year each administrator has to complete at least two 10-minute walk-throughs and our official evaluator has to complete to 30+ minute walk-throughs. All of these are uploaded to the platform. All of mine have been consistent; however, if I felt that there were any misunderstandings I would request a meeting. Also remember that you can upload lesson plans or any other documents on the platform before signing off if you need to show proof of something you do in your classroom.

My evaluators are only the principals. I believed they have to be trained evaluators. Because evaluations have a rubric, but are still regarded by humans I know they will vary. I expect them to since people are different and will perceive things differently. I definitely learn each evaluator and become acclimated to what they would be looking for and I give them exactly what they are looking for. I handle misunderstandings during my conferences and provide my lesson plan so they may see other portions of my lesson in which they may have missed.
