Even though my year has had it's fair share of
"upside down smiles", it has also had plenty of the real deal!!
|Here are my sweeties that really do bring a smile to my face!!!|
|My teammates that help me keep my sanity.|
And the BEST song for our Revolutionary War CD project!
Last week marked the 1st of THREE WEEKS of the beloved END-OF-THE-YEAR TESTS!
As a teacher in a Title-1 school that hasn't made AYP for a few years, this time of the year is always a bit stressful. You just want your little ones to do well and remember all you taught them. AND, to have all of the time they need to finish their tests.
That brings to me to a precious student of mine. She honestly takes FOREVER to complete ANY test, especially "important" ones! So, on the day of our first test, Reading, 5 minutes into the test, she already was asking, "What if we don't finish before the end of school?"
Good question! And I now know the answer because our Assistant Principal stayed with her until 7 PM so she could finish her 55 question test!
Now that's called taking your time (a teacher's mantra this time of the year)!
