Say with confidence:

“Our evaluations support teachers through meaningful conversations about practice.”


Frontline Professional Growth & the Danielson Framework for Teaching

Our hope is for every evaluation system in K-12 to promote meaningful conversations about practice, encourage self-reflection and be wrapped a culture of trust between teachers and administrators.

“Part of the job of being a teacher is to be on a career-long quest to improve practice, [while] a critically important role of any evaluation system is to promote learning.”

— Charlotte Danielson


What do evaluations that promote professional learning look like?

  • All involved need to trust the evaluation instrument as well as the evaluator’s ability to observe practice accurately and fairly.
  • Teachers should have the opportunity to assess their own practice.
  • The process should give teachers ample opportunity to reflect on practice as well as on the process itself.
  • Ongoing professional conversations help teachers and evaluators work together to identify strengths in practice, address growth areas and plan.
  • Evaluation processes should involve communities of practice in authentic ways.
