Day 25 today...almost at the 4 week mark. Still going strong!
Today I had a formal observation from the assistant principal at my school. She came in and observed math. I was super nervous all day! I teach math after lunch so the kids are usually all worked up at this time. My kids were great and the observation went well. They were focused, participating a LOT, and asking good questions! I was very pleased. I have a classroom of 28 ESL students- all at varying language levels. I know they are smart and all, but they often clam up when we have guests in our classroom. THey showed great language usage today and the assistant principal was so impressed with them and their progress. I hate that sometimes our ESL classrooms get a bad rap. Some teachers think our classes drag down test scores and what not. Time to prove them wrong! My students are smart and motivated and I am VERY proud of them. :)
Happy tomorrow is Friday! I'm so tired from a long and crazy week!!! :)
