really grading their own work? This is one thing I think I need to work on. When Johnny failed a test, I couldn't help but feel like I failed. When Susie got a 100, I couldn't help but feel like I rock. Of course I was happy for the students and such too, but still. As you can imagine, I felt much happier grading honors tests than grading the essential math tests. Does anyone else think they take student achievement too personally? This is something I really need to work on.
