Supervision is working collaboratively with teachers throughout each school year, supporting teachers in their endeavour to strive for excellence in the classroom.
Effective supervision strives to expand teachers’ thinking, to extend their own learning and set professional development goals. Effective supervision is conducting walk throughs that include an observation process and giving feedback that provokes teacher reflection for their students.
An effective supervisor shares in collegial reflective dialogue with the teacher, working together to work towards the common goal of enhanced student learning and achievement.
Supervisors encourage open dialogue amongst faculty and at the same time hold teachers accountable. They develop positive relationships that foster a positive work environment of which student learning is at the core.
