Last week, two of my best and brightest students moved away! Side Note: I teach in a very high poverty (Section 8) area; thus, kids come and go much too frequently. Anyway, this morning the secretary brought me TWO new students to fill the vacant spots. Guess what? These two students are so incredibly low. In fact, I'd easily say that they're devestatingly low in all areas. My kids are so much more advanced than these two new students. Even my three lowest students are higher than them! What do I do? The CST (California Standards Test) is less than two months away. I don't even know where to begin with these new children. Sorry, I just had to vent. I actually feel better now.
