Throughout my time working with the Network for Educator Effectiveness, I have had many conversations with teachers and administrators about classroom observations.

I have been an administrator for 16 years. NEE by far is the best system I have used for walkthroughs, evaluations, and growing teachers.

NEE evaluations for our teachers and principals have been a game changer for Park Hill. Our principals and teachers are now engaged in levels of instructional conversation that we had never encountered before. Our teachers remark that they really appreciate the visibility of the principal spending more time in their classrooms. Above all, we believe our students benefit the most from the collaborative work that NEE fosters among all of our educators.

NEE is the best tool I've used to evaluate teacher effectiveness and growth in the 21 years I've been in administration. It brings classroom observations, student surveys, and PDPs into one system and does so in a seamless manner. The whole process of teacher growth is encapsulated within the NEE model. NEE allows us to target areas that need the most attention and to better instruction in a systematic way.
The NEE training is providing our principals with consistent expectations for what should occur in the instructional process. The principals and teachers are having rich conversations about the observations. All teachers want to improve, and NEE is the tool to make that happen.

NEE is the best evaluation system I have used in my 14 years as a building principal. The ability to focus on and build upon specific indicators that meet both my building and individual teacher needs makes NEE the best option for developing and growing quality teachers.
NEE is the most beneficial teacher evaluation tool we have used. Implementing the NEE evaluation system has provided a positive impact on our teachers and our students. Teachers have commented on the invaluable conversations and timely feedback they have with administration. The use of NEE has developed a different level of positive relationships between staff and administration. They truly value it as a growth tool. This has developed a higher level of awareness in teaching, resulting in higher student learning.
