Outcomes: Teachers are familiarized with the eight criteria in the new Washington Teacher Evaluation process. Ideas, activities, and projects will be presented for each of the eight criteria. Critical attributes for each of the criteria will be discussed, collection of evidence and artifacts will be demonstrated, and examples of how to move from a 3 (proficient) to a 4 (distinguished) will be provided.

The workshop is presented by Lynn Johnston, Foreign Language Department Chair in Edmonds School District where she currently teaches French and Spanish at Alderwood Middle School. She was a participant in the Western Initiative for Language Leadership (2008 cohort).

Her presentation was chosen as "Best of the Pacific Northwest" by the PNCFL (Pacific NW Council for Languages) to represent the Pacific Northwest at ACTFL 2012. She also presented at ACTFL in 1996 and again in 2014. She received the Inspirational Leadership award from the Washington Association for Language Teachers for 2013.
