  1. The ‘ Human Being’ factor in a classroom observer is so important and valid. An on going / a constant walking in and out of classroom by the school’s leaders will help teachers a lot. This will not only allow the heads to give an immediate feedback/evaluation but will also be taken in positively by individuals and look it as a whole process of self development. The ‘Human Being’ in each teacher needs that kind of bonding to feel confident and be comfortable to be part of an education system where constant evolving of teachers take place along with their students. A more hollistic approach??!!… In its true sense?!!….
