Things can be a little tense between teachers and the principals, but less in-person communication can put a real strain on those relationships, and eventually, turn into distrust. To alleviate those problems, today·s guest, Craig Randall, wrote Trust-Based Observations. His experience as a counselor, coach, teacher, and principal in the US and overseas led him to develop the Trust-Based Observations model of observation and evaluation based on building trusting relationships between the principal and teacher that sparks teacher risk-taking and innovation.
