"Make No Judgements Where You Have No Compassion."

“Assessment is not about you as a teacher; it is about your students”

Students depend upon teachers to teach, instruct, and guide them to a place of higher learning. The data we collect from our classroom allows teachers to determine the needs of the students and what areas need improvement. Teachers are in place to make sure students reach their full potential.

The questions posed by Lopez should help teachers to stay the course in keeping their students learning in the forefront. Some teachers get disgruntled because they are so worried about how they will be assessed if their students are not excelling.

These questions help us to keep aiming to provide the best education that students can achieve. I try to keep a personal one one relationship with each of my students. I keep in constant contact with the parents of my students so they will not fall through the cracks. I discuss the data assessment with the students and the parents so we can set goals to become better achievers.
