the ups and the downs

On Friday my students took their first science test. The average grade was a 87%. My goal was 85% so I was very happy to see us make our first goal.

Yesterday, I gave my kids a pre-test on the next chapter (plants/living and non-living things). The class average was a 41%.

I guess the plus side is that there is a lot of room to grow – definitely enough to meet my 30% growth goal. It’s definitely a nice reality check.

And this is exactly why I’m here
