My students adjusted really well to the changes and really showed me that they are more capable of independent learning than I have been giving them credit for. While I have not given the majority of my assessments for this past week (thanks to a snow day), I am confident that I will have data that is at or above this past quarter's data. We shall see.
Break Down of the week:
Low point- being called into the principals office after Monday's surprise observation and told that I was "not awful."
High Point- Being observed by the director of my TFA region and receiving both positive and constructive feedback with more to come.
My goal for this upcoming week is to build routines that will continue to give my students opportunity for peer-scaffolded and independent practice. I also am hoping to get back into the habit of posting more resources and units on my blog. I get so much from teaching blogs and I want to do my best to contribute to this community as well.
