This is HILARIOUS! Do you by any chance have WestED in your school? We have walkthroughs so often that the "underground" grapevine warning us that "they" are on campus is now at warp speed. Even parent volunteers have been known to call or text teachers to let them know "Clipboards are on campus."

In four years, I have not gotten feedback from a walkthrough unless I have stalked my principal or the observer and asked for it.

I even accosted a WestEd consultant on his way out my door when they were doing an official "data sweep" and wouldn't let him out of my room until I got feedback.

I'm not shy about giving an observer who stays in my room more than 5 minutes a piece of paper and asking them to jot down some notes for me.
