Here is my reflection from the past week.
I talk a bit about teaching writing and how it is something I have worked on over the course of my career and I feel like I am having a very good year reaching my students. Sometimes you can just feel like the lessons and tweaks that you have made are actually working. I felt like that this week.
I also chat a bit about final exams and how I am not a fan of them. I also do not like the fact that we are losing 6 extra instructional days to testing this year. Ugh. More and more testing just eats away at the soul. Honestly. It is hard to find something that is a bigger waste of time.
Anyway, I hope you are taking the time to reflect in the New Year and I'd love to hear from you.
Happy New Year!
