I had my monthly meeting with Dr. Johnson this morning. We discussed legislative priorities and the placement of support class students for tracking test scores.
We then had a good discussion about evaluation, pay, collaboration, and improving teacher practice. Looking at various levels of teacher skill development and working on specific teaching skills is needed. Dr. Johnson mentioned interest in "career based pay" which would include teachers with expanded roles like coach or mentor. Having peers work with struggling teachers would be a huge shift. Again, all of this is just discussion right now.
