Other suggestions for partnering up:
When contacting the teacher in person, consider taking a copy of the Kentucky Framework for Teaching (KyFft) or the Specialist Framework with you.
Including a word of appreciation or support in your initial message could make all the difference in the way it is received.
Peer observer perspective:
"In answering my questions, their passion for their jobs and their students’ success was evident. I think they enjoyed being able to share their choices with someone who was genuinely interested. I also found myself considering how I could incorporate their successful strategies in my own classroom. My curriculum is different, but every course of study should include challenging content, clarity of difficult concepts, structure, and smooth transitions."
