In response to the 5/23/2017 post, “The Homemade Walk-thru System,” an old school LYS Superintendent writes:


I’m still laughing after reading your post today.  It’s funny on two different levels.

1. People asking you to critique their systems, not knowing that you are one of the grandfathers of formative observations systems.  Kind of like asking Orville Redenbacher to taste test your home grown popcorn.

2. You are a great teacher, but a horrible marketer.  Here’s how you should have finished your post.  “You can play at instructional leadership. Or you can use PowerWalks.”

Drop the Mic.

Think. Work. Achieve.

Your turn…
