Retired teachers wanted as observers in Teacher Excellence Program
Our Clearwater TRIF-Unit received the following message that has been verified and approved for posting by our leadership. You are urged to read and determine if interested.
Subject: Master Teacher Pilot Program- Observers Needed!
The American Board for the Certification of Teacher Excellence (ABCTE) is looking for retired teachers and administrators to serve as observers in our Master Teacher Pilot Program and we were hoping to enlist your help in recruiting eligible observers by passing out or posting the attached document.
The Master Teacher certification recognizes teachers of distinction who consistently and positively affect their students' achievement. Among other criteria, Master Teachers demonstrate instructional excellence in the classroom through two observations using the University of Virginia’s CLASS rubric. (http://www.classobservation.com/ ). We will be training observers on the CLASS rubric in August in Florida. Qualified observers will be compensated for the two day training as well as paid $100 per observation.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com or 202-263-8310.
