Teachers value ways to improve their practice. Teachers improve in many ways, such as professional learning and feedback from principals.
Teachers drive their own professional learning. Principals are responsible for supervising and evaluating teachers’ work.
Supervision happens every day in many ways. Most supervision is informal and happens between peers. Principals are teachers too.
Evaluation is a formal process done by the principal.

Teachers may disagree with the results of an evaluation. If so, teachers must talk to their principal first about their concerns.
Principals may have questions about how to do an evaluation.
Both teachers and principals can call Teacher Employment Services (TES) for advice.
