"Teacher Observation for Evaluation as Intructional Leadership"

This online conference will share the design and results of a study that considered how administrators work to provide excellent educational experience for all students through supporting teacher practice within teacher observation for evaluation (TOFE) systems. Qualitative methodology was used for this research, specifically interviews of participants. The study took place during Fall of 2017 at three seperate settings, all of which were high-performing secondary schools located in Southern California. Interviewees were administrators who performed TOFEs and the teachers they observed, for a total of thirteen participants. This study addresses three factors that influence the outcome of the TOFE: the instructional leadership capacity, and the relationship between the administrator and the teacher being observed. Findings show that administrators de-emphasize rigid elements of TOFE systems and instead focus on creating colloborative relationships with teachers through engaging in reflection and dialogue. Administrators utilize soft skills of instructional leadership and relationship building to increase teacher capacity through relationship focused on mutual professionalism and mutal trust.

"Trauma Informed Practices in the Classroom"

Approximately 25% of students have experienced one or more traumatic experiences in their lives that may negatively impact their educational progress. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study demonstrated that schools can help mitigate the negative effects of trauma by providing students with protective factors. Simple and practical strategies that can be integrated school-wide and in the classroom to help students engage in a positive, safe, and a consistent learning environment will be discussed. Join Conference.
