The article below states that standardized test do not tell the story of all that we do in education. This statement reminded me of the Elevator Speech Dr. Bays mentioned at the convocation. She said that the Elevator Speech is something you would say to somebody if you had 30 seconds to brag on what your school, your department, or what the district has accomplished.
So, like the article says "if standardized test do not tell the story of what we do in education, then what it is?"
My story is that FMS has a staff that shows how much they care for their students by mentoring them; helping with fundraisers, meeting with parents as a team; giving up their lunch time to tutor students; collaborating with their colleagues to create lessons to help students grow; working endless hours. I could write so much more to tell our story.
Let us always remember to share our story of what we do in education.
