Seize the Opportunity to Visit Another Teacher’s Classroom
Teachers need to witness effective teaching strategies in action, see classroom practice at its bestand grow as other professionals. Teachers experience a profession of isolationism. They read and attendworkshops about new teaching strategies, but are not able to directly observe these in a concrete fashion as other professionals. How many of us would welcome the occasion of being in another teacher’s classroom for an extended period of time?
Now is the time for you to seize the opportunity to visit another teacher’s classroom either within your district or in a neighboring school. This is the chance to observe first-hand the integration of technology, the use of math manipulatives, the Common Core in action, or perhaps a successful model of inclusion.
This program is at no cost to your district. If you are a teacher from one of the consortium districts and interested in visiting another teacher’s classroom, either within the Teacher Center’s consortium or at a non-member district, the Teacher Center will sponsor your visitation day by paying for your substitute. Participation in this program is limited; therefore, send your request as soon as possible.
