    Hello Everyone!

    Just wanted to share some good news that I received yesterday! I got my test scores back from the state of Texas on my seniors! I was praying for half of them to pass, but I got 35 out of 46 kids to pass!!!!! that is super news! These kids were three time failures on their state TAKS test, and this is news I could never have imagined!

    My Superintendent asked what strategies I used, because our sister school (that we are always compared to) didn't do so hot. They had 80 students take the test, and only 18 pass.

    How can you explained that you LOVED your students? I would cheer them on at every chance, I cared about them as people, I dedicated every day after school and every saturday and bought them pizza and candy with my own money. You can't bottle love for your kids.

    Three of my girls that passed the test came to my room during another class period, and brought me presents and flowers and balloons. We were laughing and crying and hugging because these girls will finally GRADUATE!!!! My other kids thought it was my birthday. I was laughing so hard and crying because I was so happy. Its days like this that make it worth it to struggle with your students.

    Thanks for letting me share :)
