Teacher Performance Appraisal (TPA) For Experienced Teachers

- Support and promote the continued growth and development of experienced teachers;
- Foster the collaboration and relationship building that is essential to creating and sustaining a learning community in schools;
- Promote a learning community culture based on sharing, trust, and support.
