Down the Stretch

….we come!!!

The 2004-2005 school year is about to come to a close. We have two days of exams, tomorrow and tuesday and that’s it.
I have 75ish kids testing in both algebra one and two. My worth as an educator will be determined by the number of 1s, 2s, 3s and 4s I get on the End-of-Course tests. It’s ridiculous.

It was a good year. My first full year. At a real school. I have no complaints.
I really like the kids. Mostly.
I would like to not be in a trailer, but it’s a good thing to laugh about, so it’s not SO bad.
Hopefully I get some good classes next year, but if I get the same exact schedule, I can’t complain. The hard work is done.

Um, that’s all. I need to get some rest so I can proctor for 5 hours tomorrow. Bleh.

  1. How’d your kids do? I am sure they performed well!
    Why don’t you ask if you can move for next year…you might just get your wish.
    I’ll try to swing by tomorrow between exams unless I finish early. Hope to see you then!

  2. so far so good. no ones. no “failures”.
    i still haven’t seen one class, though. but they’ve been pretty good all year, i’m not worried.

    you didn’t swing by. you should visit this week.

  3. Nice coach thanks for your hard work!

  4. Hey Mrs. Lidbom.
    Now that schools over you need to make a little “Journal Entry” where all your past students can come and chat with you…cuz you know you want to hear from your favorite class…2nd period! lol We had so much fun in that class. You know you’re going to miss the “SUPER GENIUS” wall next year. =~D
