I’m still alive. I was renewed at my school and with great debate I decided I will finish a second year in the inner city of Kansas City. Some of my friends did not fare so well, but that is for another discussion.
The end of the year was crazy with testing and testing and testing (joys of third grade). Some of my students showed tremendous growth – up from a DRA 6 to a DRA score of 36 – others, well, did not.
Summer is here. The sun is shining (although it is 50 degrees out) and my grad school work is piling up. What does that mean? Deep reflection. “Just playing!” It means pool, vacations, weddings, wedding planning, family and friends.
