My kids are (almost) the best

Ok, clearly that 18th percentile information was misleading. Turns out MY KIDS ARE INCREDIBLE.

District standardized test scores came in today. When I pulled the scores for the kids I teach (I only teach about 2/3 of the 8th grade now), our scores are less than a percentage point from the first school. It’s a solid 2nd place out of the entire district and I am SO PROUD. I was in a little bit of a panic about this test since my kids’ brains seemed to fry on information overload in the review week, but clearly something came through. I couldn’t be happier.

I told my last class of the day (I didn’t know until then), and they were almost as proud as I am. One of the kids reasoned that if we’ve been in 3rd the last two times, and now we’re second, we’ll definitely come in first for AIMS. Then another kid stood up and told the class to look in the mirror and ask themselves, “Did I try as hard as I could on the test?” He told them that if they knew deep down that the answer was no, then it was their fault we aren’t in first and they’ve got to work harder next time. It was a hilarious little speech. I adore my kids.
