29. Update on my evaluation:

I tailored my lesson EXACTLY to her stupid domains. I cross-referenced every single part of it with domains 2 and 3. And I felt completely out of my element.

I was critiqued that the students were losing interest and pacing wasn't right. Not one damn word about how I followed the formula down to the letter. I asked probing questions and had a lively discussion. I had artifacts out the wazoo and visual aids. I had groups and inclusive participation. It was partially student-led (for third-graders). I made accomodations for special needs. I even re-arranged the damn furniture.

I have my post-conference this week and then I am done.* I gathered artifacts for 4 freaking hours this morning and assembled them in the $20.00 binder I bought at Office Max yesterday. I still have to photo-copy about a ream of additional materials and put together a portfolio of examples.

*Done with teaching. I am retiring in June and this is the biggest crock of sh*t I have seen in nearly four decades in education.
