Observation Expectations

Yes, yes you all know what I was doing today.

Stressing myself silly about that lesson observation!

And I am here to report back and tell the tale, so to speak!

The kids, though wonderful at times, were pretty overexcited. It can always throw some of them, having a strange person in their environment. Make that two new faces and well, you can imagine…

Still, they did exactly what I thought they’d do, the Head has seen some of the children that may need additional support through out school too.

There was much watching then conferring. You know how that can get your hackles raised… what are they talking about?

Oh man, were the kids really behaving that badly? My behaviour management techniques were going to be questioned. Had the kids answered questions thown at them with the words they were hoping to hear?

It was a tense half an hour. Weeks of stress, a week of sleepless nights for that half an hour.

Was it worth it?

Hell yeah!

In my feedback, I was told that the Head thought it was a ‘strong Good’ rated lesson! My line manager gave my lesson an overall ‘Good with Outstanding features’ rating!

The kids were on plan, busy and actively learning.

The staff were all reading from the same hymn sheet.

I did the best I could with the behaviours that were displayed.

They showed that they understood, learned and retained facts through activities and play!

Phew!

I can breathe now!!!

Thank you ALL for your faith in me, it sure helped me along today!

I will not be needing any more observations this academic year now, so can relax and enjoy the rest of the year with my little class of crazies!

And so to a peaceful nights sleep!!!!

    And it did work fantastic! You take things seriously from the beginning on. That’s what is responsible that things will work out for sure. But of course, worrying can be a side-effect. But you made it and I hope the next time you can be a bit more relaxed about it! My congratulations, dear! πŸ’–

    That is lovely feedback, Ritu, although I didn’t doubt you for a moment. Isn’t it awful how we worry about things.

    I hate having someone from “corporate” or a state agency hovering around. We have a 3-day state survey every year. We know the window within which they can show up, but that window is 90 days. They just show up outta the blue and ask for the administrator. Then they spend the next 3 days combing over charts, interviewing patients, and generally hovering over everybody’s shoulders. It’s so stressful. The survey results determine, in large part, the facilities’ rating and perception, in large part affecting admissions, etc. I feel your pain. Those days suck. πŸ˜•
