    about surprise visits
    By JMHO

    I am amazed that so many people are uptight about these surprise visits. As teachers we get them all the time. My pricipal calls them walk-throughs, informal observations, just plain doing his job by checking to see that we are doing ours... As a ST my college did as many unannounced visits as announced ones and they often brought someone else around too! I actually think it was a good thing. By the time all those people were done watching me student teach I had totally lost all fear of being observed. My principal could come in on my worst day, stay all day, and I would not be bothered by it. (I must add that he is a jewel, anyway.) Being in the spotlight is part of what we do. Supervising teachers need to see the "real deal" not just the put-on show.
