Bill Gates: Teachers Need Real Feedback
“Good. You’re doing a good job.”
When’s the last time you’ve gotten feedback as a teacher?
It’s always good to get a pat on the back, but if that’s all you get term after term and year after year, you may start wondering, “How am I really doing?” In fact, I’ve even asked administrators in the past, “Could you give me more specific feedback as to how I can better serve our students?”
