I had my first observation of my spring observations today during writing. We were learning about adjectives. It went well, overall. I didn’t have anyone practicing their John Cena knock out moves (this happens almost hourly in my classroom) so that’s a plus! I don’t know about you but observations STRESS ME OUT!
The person being in my room doesn’t bug me. Since I was an intern last year, I had someone observing me almost weekly. I got used to it. The problem is, I forget that they are in my classroom! I just get on a roll and forget they are there. This means I don’t remember to make sure I hit all the points I am supposed to!
You know how observations are. There is a bunch of little boxes you need to get checked off to prove you are an effective teacher. Things you do normally, but maybe not in every lesson.
I’ve got one more to go! Probably tomorrow during math. Hopefully it goes over just as well and John Cena doesn’t make an appearance.
