Teacher evaluation including evidence:


Ernest worked very hard to ensure that the content of his units and lessons were not only
curriculum based but also relevant for his high school students. He planned both
collaboratively as well as independently for his classes, and incorporated feedback and
critical reflection into his instructional planning. Ernest researched and used his own
resources in planning a unit for the new Social Studies curriculum, and implemented this
unit in a creative and engaging manner for his Social 10 students.
Ernest clearly understands how to translate curriculum into meaningful and progressive
learning opportunities for his students. In his plans he demonstrated his ability to tailor his
plans to accommodate individual learning needs. He also included a variety of assessment
methods, both formative and summative in nature, and students were made aware of how
they were to be assessed.

learning. Of particular notice was her careful consideration of transition times, student engagement, and
preparedness. Joanne planned each lesson and activity thoroughly having exemplars ready when
appropriate. She continues to work on ensuring each lesson has a defined set, developing activity, closure
and assessment. Joanne is a reflective practitioner, always searching for ways to improve her teaching and
student learning. She has experimented with different assessment techniques to ensure her students are

Teacher evaluation including evidence:


I was very impressed with Joannes confidence in front of the class. She is a shy and timid person, but
carries a positive presence when she is in front of the pupils. Joanne was very comfortable using the teacher
directed method and has started to experiment with other strategies such as game play and whole class
discussion. She taught in a clear audible voice and moved around the room with ease to answer questions
and help students. Due to her careful planning and consideration, she was able to maintain student interest
throughout her lessons. She used time effectively and was able to adapt her lessons to the pace of student
understanding. One of Joannes greatest strengths was her ability to reach a variety of learners. She would
not only verbally give instructions, but she had written instructions and would take the time to work with
small groups to ensure to ensure each student got the most out of her lessons. In addition, Joanne
differentiated her instruction, providing challenge questions for those students who were ready for the next
level. Joanne also experimented with the Smart Board and volunteered her time one morning to help the
Kindergarten class use the Chrome books.

connected with her thanks to Joannes caring nature. She was aware of student difficulties and dealt with
them in a professional manner ensuring the students dignity was respected. Joanne has excellent oral and
written language skills which were clear when she was in front of the classroom or communicating with
parents. Joanne stayed at school past 8:00 p.m. to be part of Parent Teacher Interviews. She also
collaborated with the other student teachers at Crestwood. In addition, Joanne has developed a professional
relationship with the other teachers; she wasnt afraid to ask other teachers at the school for manipulatives
to enhance her math lessons and has helped the music teacher prepare for the annual Winter Concert.
Joanne also worked closely with out Educational Assistant who would provide extra support in the
classroom and one on one during some of Joannes math lessons.

Appropriate questioning
Assessment variety

Timely feedback

Adapted assessment
Record keeping
Reporting

Teacher evaluation including evidence:


One of the reasons the grade fours were engaged in the lesson was Joannes appropriate use of questioning.
I did not ever see Joanne lecture in front of the class long periods of times. Joanne often used questioning to
prompt student thinking, which she used as an assessment to further her lesson. When appropriate, Joanne
would ask students to turn in their work and she would use this to further direct her teaching. I noted that
she circled students incorrect answers instead of just crossing it out and providing the correct answer. She
would go back the next day, review the concept with the whole class and have students correct their own
work. She would use Do Nows and Show What You Knows during her math unit to ensure students were
learning. She created extra worksheets and activities to teach the students in a variety of ways based on
their learning needs. Whenever student work was assessed (formative or summative) it was returned to the
pupils the next day. Joanne kept a record of both anecdotal notes and marks to keep track of student
records.

Teacher evaluation including evidence:


Joanne handles the classroom routines well. She experiments with different methods and is discovering her
own personal preferences, although further work in this area is needed. She is aware of transition times,
and plans for them to run smoothly throughout her lessons. She is gaining confidence in handling
disruptions that arise and realizing that there are a variety of ways available for handling them. Joanne
maintains a safe, easygoing classroom atmosphere. She respects the students dignity, builds and maintains
warm relationships, promotes cooperation in many different ways and gets the students involved actively
in class procedures.

Joanne has made great progress in directing learning for individual students. Several of the students in the
class require modified programs and adaptions were made to suit the needs of these students. Joanne was
very conscientious when meeting these students needs and she has organized activities to suit all learning
levels. She has clearly stated the learners role in the class and at school, but has been understanding of
situations outside of the school that have interfered with learning. Joanne has made herself readily
available to her students for extra help. She has demonstrated that in her classroom all her students can be
successful at their level. When teaching time, she had little clocks available for those students who needed
to physically move the hands to calculate elapsed time, in addition to showing a written strategy and
exposing students to ways to calculate elapsed time using mental math.

seriously. She respected all matters of confidentiality as she asked for and received parent permission to
use any student work for her portfolio. Throughout the experience, Joanne has always considered
suggestions for improving her techniques and promptly incorporates these suggestions into her teaching.

Demonstrates oral/written reflective practices
Engages in goal setting
Communicates overall vision of teaching

Teacher evaluation including evidence:


Joanne constantly reflects on her teaching practices and lessons. She has kept a reflective journal
throughout her practicum, as a means of revisiting her teaching experiences and observations. I have found
that she is frequently tougher on herself than she needs to be. She has set high expectations and goals for
herself. Joanne has assessed her teaching by looking at the understanding of her students. She always
considers what needs to be re-taught, reinforced, or revisited.
Other Comments:
It has been wonderful to have Joanne at Crestwood school; she has become an integral part of Room 7.
Joannes willingness to assist in the operation of the school (in any manner necessary) has not gone
unnoticed. She would often give up her lunch break last minute to assist with supervision of the student
during lunch, she was willing help out teachers in other classrooms when needed, and she assisted the music
teacher with preparations for the Winter Concert.
Well done, Joanne! I look forward to welcoming you to the teaching profession in the near future.
Student Teachers Comments:
I have had the best experience here at Crestwood. Everyone has been so welcoming and helpful, from
lending me math manipulatives to offering advice and tips from their experiences. I especially am truly
thankful to Mrs. Bryson for opening up her classroom to me and allowing me this amazing experience to
learn from her and her students. I was pretty nervous when I first began but with her help and guidance I
soon found my confidence. She was so helpful at providing her input and feedback on my lessons. We
always discussed my lessons before and after I taught them. She would point out the good things that she
saw I was doing but was also very constructive in her feedback of things that I could change or improve
upon in the future. Reflecting back on my lessons with her was so beneficial for me. I have learned and
experienced so much; lesson planning, unit planning, using the Program of Studies, transition times,
classroom routines, planning for early finishers, assessment practices, self-reflection, supervision duties and
Winter Concert preparation. I am grateful for having the opportunity to experience these things and will
take what I have learned with me as I continue to learn and grow as a teacher. I am going to miss Crestwood
and especially all of the Grade 4s. They have become a huge part of my life these past 5 weeks.
