This post has NOTHING to do with my normal blog topics.
Humor me, please.
I am a career teacher in my 18th year on the job. The previous 17 were spent in music- band specifically. I went through a MASSIVE burnout and found myself needing to teach something else. I ended up in middle school history.
I’m a rookie teacher in my 18th year on the job AND I’m learning how to be a real teacher. I’m teaching a core subject. A totally new environment.
This time last week (Friday), I gave a quiz over the section we had just finished. The test average for my combined class load of 157 students was 68%. As of today, the test averages had climbed to 94%!!!
I’m so proud of that progress!
