Day 28: TPEP is not Peppy


I consider myself a pretty reflective teacher and very interested in finding ways to engage, stretch and support student learning in my classroom.  And try as I might, I’m having a hard time figuring out how the TPEP (Teacher/Principal Evaluation Program) is helping me to be more reflective about my practice or providing me opportunities to try new research-based, best-practices ideas in my classroom.  I feel, instead, that I am a data-creating machine…which you’d think I’d love being that I’m the stats teacher, but I can’t say that I’m energized by the whole process.  Maybe I will become enlightened as the process unfolds.  How are you finding the new evaluation system helping you to become more reflective and progressive in your teaching practice?
