Our teachers deserve better feedback.
Teachers support evaluations based on multiple measures: student growth, classroom observation and feedback from peers and parents.
I wrote my first 30 books as a teacher. I would read to my classes, and they'd give me feedback. I was trying to role model.
Teachers say their schools of education did not adequately prepare them for the classroom. They would have welcomed more mentoring and feedback in their early years.
In the end, I do have a group of friends and teachers whose opinions I respect, and so I guess I just have to be content with their feedback.
Secondary school parents tell me that they are frustrated, that their teachers ignore them, their children don't give them much feedback because they are adolescents, they feel kind of out of the loop.
Feedback is the breakfast of champions.
A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
