I don't have to speak to them that way, because neither my students nor my colleagues ask questions like this. I hope you don't teach the way you ask questions also, or wonder why you get a low PB when you display a lack of basic ability to apply the A.I.M qualities you are graded on at work, to a question whose answer you could gave deduced based on a previous poster's response to your questions. What is even worse is that if you had taken a bit of effort and gone through previous posts in this thread, you would not have to even the question in the first place.

Next time, do some research, ask better questions that add value to this thread, and don't cry when you get called out for not putting in some due diligence. Thanks.
i'm sorry mommy.

C has a range of 1.25 to 1.75. Norm is 1.5 but 1.25 is low C and 1.75 is high C

If you keep getting Cs even though boss said they are happy with you, is it still possible to get promoted from GEO3?

Yes. Are you a diploma holder? Generally speaking, performing well at GEO 2 is not difficult as the KRA is easily achievable and there are less competition within the sub grade since most teachers are at GEO 4/5.

Usually promotion happens naturally when you hit the salary ceiling or when you perform well and you are recommended for it.

C is good performance, but not good enough for your sub grade. Even if you are promoted to GEO 3, you are at risk of not meeting KRA. Speak with your RO and find out how you can contribute more to the school/how to beef up your T&L.

I see. Actually asking for my wife. She entered as a degree grad. She's feeling kind of discouraged as her classes did significantly better than average and she's been teaching graduating classes, but still got C.

Just to correct a misconception.

Teaching graduating class itself does not mean you are given more credit compared to a peer teaching non graduating class. The skills set in both levels differ, just like different ability classes. In fact, graduating class teachers are usually given less projects or involvement in school committees , in lieu of the heavier marking load and focussed preparation on their T and L.

T and L is equally important at all levels, including Primary One and secondary one as they are the foundation years, not just in terms of content but also character and school readiness.

Finally, just to be clear I am not saying teaching graduating class is not important . I really salute those who can teach graduating class year after year, and their sacrifices during school holidays for extra classes and commitment to be with the pupils until the last lap. But that alone should not be taken as a competitive edge over a non graduating class.

FYI, I have taught almost all levels at a primary school, including graduating, streaming and foudnation levels.

A GEO 4 /5 profile teacher should be able to teach across all levels, across all ability classes.

Same poster as the above.

My longest and average performance years in a sub grade are actually the early grades GEO 2 and 3. It took me some time to get to GEO 4.... but GEO 5 was 2 years later, and my grades are pretty decent now.

Possible reasons could be the competitiveness at early grades due to lesser people or itís iust the cohort sometimes.

Hone the craft of teaching and these skills , together with some project involvement, will serve you( your Wife) in good stead when she finally gets promoted to the higher grades.

Thank you for the reply. How long did you take to move up to GEO4 from GEO3, and did you get 2 Bs in a row?

My wife is rather discouraged, to the point that she's exploring moving out to private schools, as she feels underappreciated despite her classes doing well and good student feedback.

2C+, 1B... 3 years....
Exceeding Peers at my level took 2 years, and another 4 years due to maternity and NPL. The rest of us all 3 years.
