Double standards

Somehow I find myself in the rather absurd position that tomorrow I am being observed by another teacher, using the Virtual Learning Environment to teach chemistry. I was nominated as an "excellent practitioner" for my innovative use of IT in the classroom.

However, earlier in the term I managed to fail an observed lesson, observed by one of the senior managers who hates the way I teach. At the end of the same lesson, one of the pupils told me that I had delivered the best explanation that she had ever heard.

Go figure.

So tomorrow I guess I need to cover myself by telling the teacher observing that she should just ignore the crap teaching part and keep her eyes on the screen. That should do it.
