Professional Evaluation of Teachers
Professional Evaluation Program for Teachers (PEP-T):
When the school year opened in August 2002, the faculty was introduced to a new teacher evaluation system that is being implemented in all schools across the state. It is the Department of Education's Professional Education Program for Teachers (PEP-T), which identifies five "duties" that all teachers are expected to perform as they practice their craft. These "duties," drawn from the teacher standards, developed by the Hawaii Teacher Standards Board, include:
1) Using effective instructional strategies in classrooms;
2) Creating and maintaining positive and safe learning environments;
3) Using assessment data;
4) Demonstrating professionalism; and,
5) Reflecting on practices.
Although teachers are evaluated every year, ( i.e., they are responsible for working on all five duties, ) they are rated only once every five years. The rating process offers an opportunity for teachers and administrators to engage in professional sharing where teachers can present evidence of their teaching / professionalism in a conference setting. Because all teachers are required to participate in the process, teachers at Moanalua have additional advantage of meeting their PEP-T requirements through the school's professional development plan. The plan asks teachers to design standards-based units to help students reach HCPS II skills and concepts. It asks teachers to promote higher level thinking in their students. It asks teachers to be cognizant of student diversity and adapt instruction accordingly. It asks teachers to use formative and performance assessments effectively. Teacher collaboration and collegiality are imbedded into the process and teacher reflections are encouraged. Teachers are asked to create and maintain portfolios of their professional growth. All of these activities can be found somewhere in the five "duties" that appear in the PEP-T evaluation criteria. Participation in the school's professional development plan and preparation for the PEP-T evaluation and rating are complementary.
The Hawaii Content and Performance Standards were put out by the Hawaii Department of Education in 1999 and is constantly being supplemented with student samples. The new Performance Indicators are also now online. The standards were implemented to create uniformity and consistency between all schools within the state. Regardless of school, each student should be addressing the Hawaii content standards for their grade. This resource is also a good resource for parents.
The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has placed online standards regarding teacher development and student learning. The NETS are the standards that show a profile of what teachers and students should be learning and accomplishing.
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) sponsors many workshops that show innovative and cutting edge ways to teach and learn mathematics. The NCTM national standards are the standards upon which the Hawaii standards were based. This website offers excellent interactive ways to assess as well as teach math through technology.
With the Felix cases, and SpEd count increasing and more students being diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, EI, SLD and with a push for inclusion, the classroom teacher needs to be aware of modifications and accommodations that need to be done or tried within the class to make learning accessible to ALL students.
ThinkQuest is a competition of education based, student built website. It is a place of valuable resources as well as a great way to learn and share new information. Cody Kikuta along with Lynne Sueoka (Aiea Elementary) coached a platinum award winning team with their website about WWII.
The Electronic Collaboration Educational Learning Lab (ECELL) is a summer program that focussed on teacher professional development as well as authentic teaching and assessment incorporating technology. This was a jaw dropping experience that was an intense 5-6 week experience. Jaimee Char, Lani Lau, and Tiffany Meeds, and Cody Kikuta participated in this program.
