    Wow! What a nightmare! Why would anyone think that was a good time for an observation? I can relate though because 2 years ago (my 1st year) my administrator chose to come into my 8th grade class the period after the state test was over. The kids had been sitting for 5, yes 5, hours straight, finally gotten to move, and were wild! I had planned to do something laid back (looking up words for our new unit in the dictionary, writing definitions, and listening to some soft music) and I had to change gears and try to "fly by the seat of my pants" and teach a lesson instead. I knew he was bad, but I was blown away that anyone would come at that time! It turned out fine, but still made me mad.

    I bet you will be fine. Who could expect the normal routine on a day like that? I bet she just wanted to see how you would roll with the punches. Blow her away in the one next week !
