Let's start out with the good news: State Writing Test (we took in February) Results came in today. 96% of my students passed!!!! One did not. I'll take it. Confirmation that this math teacher, can also teach writing....whoop! In other news the other two fifth grade classes had percents of 70% and 72% passing. That really gave my students a boost when it came to the tests they are taking now. They saw how their hard work paid off.
Dear Principals of the world. You are in charge. You are the boss. Do not let any certain teacher walk all over you. It makes the rest of the staff view you as less in charge. It also builds up animosity.
Love, Mrs. H
Happy State Testing!
