Question

Dear Ken,
I teach at a Private school with 200 students in grades 6-8. I implemented SBG last
year and was hoping to get our new hire on board this year (I believed we had an
understanding when we hired her). So far this year, I have gotten nowhere with her.
My principal says he wants to implement SBG school-wide but is very loose in his
leadership. I am so frustrated with the way she is assessing, things like grading
student's performance on math games, meaningless sounding homework assignments
and one or two quizzes for the entire year, that I am ready to quit. My principal
absolutely loves her so I am at a loss. Any ideas?

In the circumstances you describe you cannot do much more than do the right things and let
the other teacher and the Principal do what they are doing. I would subtly take advantage of
any opportunities that arise to talk about how successful your practices are with the students
and how well received they are by the parents.
