Working Together Achieving Success

Standardized Testing has Begun Again...

It is that time of year again, where standardized testing has begun...
We are all really anxious for our schools to do well.
But please remember that among the teachers who will be administering the exams...
There is a Math teacher who not only brought the love of numbers to his/her students but supplied snacks for hungry bellies.
There is an English teacher who showed his students that reading and writing can take them beyond their wildest dreams as he listened to what disturbed theirs.
There is a History teacher who taught her students the importance of learning from the past while providing a safe place for them to make a mistake.
There is a Special Ed teacher who was able to bring the curriculum to her students so they can know the feeling of success.
If our school gets high scores, that’s great, we will celebrate.
But if those scores are not as high as we would have expected or as high as that rival school, please know that those teachers take the results very personally.
Please don’t take away their passion or question their professionalism.
Tell them that you appreciate how hard they work. That you understand the struggles they face.
Tell them that these are just scores and that what they do for their students, could never be measured by numbers.
One exam or score should not measure a teacher’s/student's worth or value.
Let them know that you support them and that they are making a difference.
Please do this and watch as those teachers and students rise to heights unknown.
