That Time of Year

This year has really been a lesson in resilience. My students started the year quiet and a bit anxious to make mistakes and take risks. I started out the year wondering how I could keep my students safe and smiling while each student adjusted to the structure of my classroom at different rates (if you know me you know what this means, dear reader!). This week, we have seen some amazing leaps and bounds in our toughest subject, writing. This little one had never held a pencil in August, and just published her first narrative BOOK about a family visit to Mt. Vernon. Proud is an understatement!

  1. I love this time of year! It’s so rewarding to watch all the progress students have made in the last six months. I wish I could make the parents understand that they need to wait until March to begin understanding how much their students will be learning each year.
