    I teach in a small town in southwest Missouri. Everyone is likely to get 2 or more unnannounced, what I call a "drive-by". Principal comes in, takes notes for 5 minutes, and within an hour there's a copy in my mailbox. Probationary teachers, first 5 years, will have a formal observation every year, which includes pre- and post-conference meetings, and the obs. lasts 30 minutes. Once a teacher is tenured, this will happen once every 3 years. I won't need one until 2007/2008.

    I think the drive-by observations are painless, but others still pass the word ("She's in the hallway, look out!") She tends to do quite a few in one day.
