I feel like the evaluations are not a good idea. They cause the teachers to have unnecessary stress, which can negatively effect the learning of the students, which should be the main goal of an educator.
I feel like not everything should be based off one evaluation. What if the class is having an off day? one day shouldn't create ideas about a classroom as a whole throughout the rest of the year
I do believe teacher evaluations put too much pressure on both the teachers and students. I say this because as a student, my teacher would always tell the class before his/her evaluation and ask us to behave our best. While I do agree we needed to act on our best behalf, I think it puts too much pressure on the students, even if they already act well in the classroom. I also think the teacher is trying to hard to impress the evaluator that they are not paying attention to their students' academic progress in that school day.
