Periodically administrators are asked by colleagues to participate in an interview for graduate coursework. It’s always an honor to be asked and can be a great reflective experience. Recently a teacher at my school inquired about an interview focused on teacher evaluation. Our district has been using the Network for Educator Effectiveness or NEE model for teacher evaluation for the past few years. My thoughts and observations about our district’s shift to the NEE are provided below.
Earlier this semester, I had the opportunity to complete a literature review on the teacher interview process as part of my human resources administration course. Since my school was in the process of conducting interviews throughout the writing of this assignment, the application was practical and immediate. Below are some of the findings from one portion of the review.
