ABSTRACT: Even though teacher supervision is an everyday practice in schools there is little known about its effect on teacher's professional growth. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of supervision on teacher's professional growth from the principal's perspective. Ten High School Principals were interviewed in a semi-structured, open-ended interview format. Results indicated that the Principal's felt that supervision can have an impact on teacher's professional growth, but the level to which is dependent on the type of supervision model used. The majority of Principal's felt that the Walkthrough model is the most effective method in helping teacher's focus on instruction
