In honor of the holiday season, I’ve compiled the 12 Days Of TPEP. Perhaps this list can calm your holiday anxiety, reduce your Seasonal Affective Disorder, and help you set some New Year’s resolutions.
And here is my Powtooon video. Special thanks to my husband for providing the vocals. :)
12 Standards Swirling
There aren’t actually 12 standards, but there are a lot of standards to consider: CCSS, NGSS, ELS, TPEP. Enough to make your head swirl.
11 Goals Galloping
During TPEP season goals are galloping through your head like sugarplum fairies as you think about goals for yourself, your students, your team.
10 Colleagues Collaborating
I could survive TPEP without my colleagues. They help me write my goals, listen to me when I talk through problems of practice, and trouble shoot ideas to try with students. TPEP is incomplete without colleague collaboration.
9 Months of Evidence
You technically have 9 months, but don’t wait until month 8 to collect. Start now! Make a list of what evidence will support your goals.
8 Teachers Trying
Teachers want what’s best for kids. Teachers want to be the best we can be. TPEP helps us communicate this to our principals. We try. Really.
7 Learners Leaping
When you write goals and monitor progress, you’ll notice what gains your learners are making. It’s encouraging and wonderful!
6 Core Principals
The critical importance of teacher and leadership quality
The professional nature of teaching and leading a school
The complex relationship between the system for teacher and principal evaluation and district systems and negotiations
The belief in professional learning as an underpinning to the new evaluation system
The understanding that the career continuum must be addressed in the new evaluation system
The understanding that the system must determine the balance of “inputs or acts” and “outputs or results”
