Moscow, ID, School District Superintendent, Greg Bailey said, “We purchased Teacher Vitae for its ability to reduce time spent preparing the evaluation to providing a tool that allows increased observation time and more quality discussions between evaluator and teacher.”
With Teacher Vitae, educators are invested in their professional growth and administrators have a comprehensive evaluation toolkit to meet state evaluation requirements while encouraging professional learning and supporting educator effectiveness. The Platform becomes substantially more powerful when coupled with Mileposts since documenting evidence of student growth across multiple measures and various class loads has never been easier or more efficient
Silverback Learning Solutions collaborated with educators to build Teacher Vitae, making it easy to implement and manage and valuable for all staff. School district administrators encourage educators to engage and grow through evaluations and Teacher Vitae supports these 21st-century concepts. Jerome, Idaho, School District Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Development, Janet Avery said, “We see Teacher Vitae as the vehicle to calibrate teacher observations and evaluations throughout the district. Teachers will be able to not only provide evidence of their great instructional practices but will be able to reflect upon that evidence. Reflection takes educators deeper into their craft, and in the end, produces even better teachers. Teacher Vitae will also allow for more intentional decisions making when it comes to professional development.”
