I am linking up with Farley for her August Currently!
Loving: I have only one more week left before I can get into my classroom for set-up and I feel that this will be the end for me. I have so much work to do getting ready for this new school year, so I figure I will enjoy my last week :)
Thinking: I was invited to one of my former student's Quinceanera.(oops totally botched the spelling up there because I was too lazy to go look at the invite!) I am excited to see what exactly happens at these since I have a lot of students that talk about them all the time. Her mom was a former coworker who I stayed friends with and another teacher I work with will be there too so it should be fun! I'm just not sure what I'm wearing yet!
Wanting: So I got a text last night from the Special Ed teacher asking if I got my scores yet and she heard that they were back and the 1st grade teacher's class scored 100% proficient! I emailed my principal and this is exactly what she said: " Yes they are and 7th / 8th grade keep making strides. They both were in the high 60 percentile. So way to go. Keep pushing!!!! :)"
Last year they were 56 and 57% so I am happy as well that my students are improving, however I want them higher! I also can't wait to see the breakdown, since I had a high percentage of advanced proficient last year.
Needing: Well, with my grade change to 5/6 there is a ton of stuff I need and it mostly has to do with the things I need to do. Too much to list!
1st day: We go back for a week of PD starting on the 25th. We get the Friday and following Monday off though! Kids (students and my own two) Go back September 4th!
