Re: How is your staff observed?
We do T-TESS just like any other teacher in the building. Appraisers are divided alphabetically, so we all 3 have different APs who observe us. I wrote a very general, vague lesson plan that could apply to any day of the year, and posted it on the board as we're supposed to do. My appraiser didn't even look at it. I scored well and the comments were obviously copy/paste. Pronouns were mixed, there was a comment about kids working in small groups (they did not on that day). Very much a rubber-stamp process.
