Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap
Jan 12 2011

CMA Application: ugh.

14. Did your students ultimately reach the goal you set? What specifically were their results?

I’m supposed to answer this question about my last completed year of teaching. Here’s what I’d like to say:

I think my kids reached our goals. I mean, my data says we got really really close- 1.9 years of reading growth is quite nearly 2. Maybe if I’d tested the last week of school, Brianna would’ve put us over the edge. I know she wanted to prove that she could do it. Instead, I was barely there (mentally, emotionally) for the last day I saw my students, and the day after- their last day- I went to a funeral.

oh 2010, I’m so glad you’re over.
