Where Has the Time GONE!!! Holidays and APPR!

I can't believe it is the end of JANUARY already!  Time is just FLYING by!  I'm sorry I haven't updated and checked in recently.  It was a crazy busy holiday season at school and at home!

If any of you are NY teachers you are all to familiar with APPR!  Well, just before break I experienced my first round of observations under this new evaluation system and it was SOOOOO much work! 

I created a binder to keep track of how I meet each teaching standard and even though it took HOURS to put together and create, I know its going to be so helpful in the evaluation process and years to come!  I am working on posting a copy of my APPR Binder Template on TpT as soon as possible!  If you are involved in this new APPR process nad your school is using the NYSUT RUBRIC I highly suggest checking it out and saving yourself lots of time by using, changing and making your own out of what I've already done!

The Binder Template helps you organize and collect performance evidence, for your evaluator, for Standards 1 and 5 which are basically "UN-OBSERVABLE." 

Put the Standards templates, in sheet protectors, and then in a binder.  Behind each standard add all the "evidence" from your teaching that shows how you HIGHLY :-) met each standard!!
