Title: What do high school teachers want (need) to hear from their


1
What do high school teachers want (need) to hear
from their principals?Life After the
Walk-Through
  • Robin Washam, School Improvement Facilitator
  • High School Mathematics Teacher

2
What do teachers want to hear?
  • You did a fantastic job!
  • I can tell that the students really like you.
  • See you next year.

3
What teachers need to hear and to recognize is
  • That education doesnt happen in a vacuum.
  • That student achievement is our reason for being
    at a school.
  • That school building expectations include
    planning, sharing, and training
  • And even Tiger Woods has a coach.

4
My life as a math teacher, the lows
  • Beginning Teacher (sometime in the dark ages,
    also known as the sixties)
  • Characteristics
  • Young and a cool dresser with great shoes
  • Egotistical (thought I knew how to teach since
    the students liked me, they really just liked the
    shoes)
  • Poor classroom management skills, struggled to
    make it to Friday
  • Absolutely no pedagogical skills, the way l
    learned should work for all
  • Belief that if students just did their homework,
    all would be good

5
My life as a math teacher, the stable
years
  • Sometime between mini and maxi skirts (between
    year 3 and 10?)
  • Characteristics
  • Committed to teaching
  • Starting to think of students learning
  • Classroom management under control
  • Realize link between what I do and students
    learning
  • Enjoy my job
  • Enjoy trainings and seminars and teacher
    conferences

6
My life as a math teacher, the epiphany
  • Okay it was a mid life crisis
  • Characteristics
  • Started to look outside the box
  • Realized how much I didnt know
  • Really thought about students learning
  • Lots of experimentation
  • Absolute passion for my work
  • Presented at trainings and seminars and teacher
    conferences

7
My future life as a math teacher, Serenity,
Conservatism, Disengagement
  • Sometime after the turn of the century
  • Characteristics
  • Believe there has been a decline in the standards
    for students and for younger teachers
  • Pulling away from students and school
  • Students and parents were more serious about
    education in the old days.
  • Conservative in teaching strategies

8
What does good a good math math class look like?
  • Student Discourse
  • Student Justification
  • Student reflection
  • Challenging Curriculum
  • Equity

9
What does this mean for a principal
  • Beginning teacher
  • Stabilization and Diversification
  • The Passion
  • Serenity, Conservatism
  • Disengagement

10
Practicing
  • Video Clip 1
  • Ms. Green, Special Education Math Class, New
    Curriculum, Experienced teacher, probably at
    serenity, conservatism stage
  • In a team of three, one role play the principal,
    one the teacher, and one an observer.
  • Practice the debrief for 5 minutes (What went
    well, what didnt go well, etc)
  • Discuss what you saw in the video, where you
    would want to go with this teacher, and how the
    debrief worked.

11
Practicing
  • Video Clip 2
  • Mr. Wise, IMP 2 (a post reform book with 10th
    graders), new curriculum, graduated here using
    Saxon, started teaching here with Saxon, probably
    in stabilization and diversification stage
  • In a team of three, one role play the principal,
    one the teacher, and one an observer.
  • Practice the debrief for 5 minutes (What went
    well, what didnt go well, etc)
  • Discuss what you saw in the video, where you
    would want to go with this teacher, and how the
    debrief worked.

12
Practicing
  • The real Mr. Wise already has had an epiphany, is
    in a teaching lab classroom, and is coaching not
    only teachers in his building, but the
    surrounding area.
  • This just didnt happen on its own. It took some
    pretty good principals to help the process along.
