Students evaluating teachers...sounds scary doesn't it. It can be for many teachers. What if we actually asked kids how we are doing? Why don't all teachers do this? I know that the evaluations I give my kids half-way through the year and again at the end have been some of my most cherished pieces of paper, and well...some of the most eye opening. I have changed and grown an incredible amount based on my students' evaluations. It really does not matter how we felt the year went, what matters most is how it went in the minds of the students. In this podcast I was going to reflect on how I have grown over the years by listening to my kids, but I think I got stuck on those few evaluations from students that thought I was just fair, and the couple of kids evaluations that thought I was m m m m m....miserable.
