No good decision was ever made in a swivel chair. â€”Â George S. Patton, Army general (1885-1945)
So here it is. I’m going to put it out there and be accountable to you.
Beginning with the first week of school, I will visit a minimum of 20 classrooms per week, not including formal observations. That’s roughly four classrooms per day. It sounds like a lot when you say it that way, but for a 5-10 minute walk-through, that’s only about 40 minutes per day maximum.
Why have I found it so hard to make this happen? I always start out strong, but things break down some time around Novemeber or December. I suppose I could make the typical excuse. After all, it’s easy to get bogged down pushing papers, checking email, and returning voicemails.
But that’s not really a good excuse, is it?
