What Makes A Master Teacher

George Coruous re posting re-posting got me thinking about my second year of teaching about this same comment that my principal noted (April 18, 1991) on my probationary evaluation. This principal school was in her second year at the school too, but was a seasoned one who had experiences at both panels. For the record I had a 4/5 split with 32 students and they were 9 and 10.

At the end of the evaluation she commented, “This teacher’s willingness to participate in all phases of school life, and his dedication and hard work in teaching children are to his credit. His skills and talents are evident in his work and interrelationships with all the students in the school. His ability to work with children with computers is excellent, and worthy of special note.”

She furthered commented, “this teacher early in his career has the potential to be master teacher.”
