Proud Moment from Former Students

This week just seemed to drag on. After today, we have 7 1/2 days left with students. It has been raining almost everyday this week. I'm ready for summer and so are the kids. On a brighter note, we received good news this morning about our FCAT scores. Third Grade is the year that students will be retained if they don't pass the reading section.  Well, all of our Third Grade students PASSED!!!! : ) (Insert back flip here!) We are so ecstatic about this accomplishment. I also found out that 3 of my former students got a perfect score on the Reading Section. I had these students for three years. I had them for Kindergarten, First and Second Grade. Since my school is not a "traditional" school, we teach the same students for 3 years in a subject area before they move on to an Intermediate Cluster. All of my other students from that class, also did very well on the test. On top of all this excitement, I am anxiously awaiting the results of the Fourth Graders. I was asked to teach an After school Reading Camp for Below Grade level students in reading. So, I will be waiting on pins and needles until they come out. Fingers crossed that they did just as well.

Congratulations! I am a Florida teacher as well and I know how impressive that is with FCAT changes this year.

Congrats on the test results. When we teach well, good things can't help but happen.
