Memo_022 Continued

  • Please continue to get familiar with your  students.  I would imagine knowing your students in periods 4-8 are more important since you will likely be observed during these periods.  You may wish to know how many students have an IEP, how many are ESL and how many have free/reduced lunch.  Knowing their 8th grade standardized exam scores in math and English is important.  If you are teaching trigonometry, knowing their MXRE scores will be more important than the 8th grade scores. 
Ah yes, its dog and pony showtime!!!  Screw the kids in the classes that won't be visited.  Appearances are all that count.

Oh my gosh...this memo (continued) is just horrible.

I feel so bad that you had to work under this idiot for so many years...

"You 'may' wish to know who has an IEP..."?! REALLY? Excuse me, you are LEGALLY BOUND to know who has an IEP & to FOLLOW that IEP TO THE LETTER OF THE LAW!!!
GREAT advice from an administrator
(sarcasm here)! Don't think your teachers know who has an IEP & who does not?!(Well, perhaps not TFA employees.)
Just WHAT is the matter with people?!
