MFL MarMac teachers have discovered a new way of collaborating with one another and the community...and it all begins by placing a simple sign outside their classroom doors.

The signs invite people—be it staff, school board members, parents or other members of the community—to enter classrooms, observe lessons and provide feedback about what they’ve seen and heard.

The movement is called #ObserveMe, and was created by California math teacher specialist and educational trainer Robert Kaplinsky in order to foster more collaborative school environments.
