Dancing for joy.

Friday, June 07, 2013

I finally finished overhauling the scoring system for all the students in my school. We are a small school on its way out as funding is stretched to the max and with this being the case we figure in the next 5 years we will need to merge. Then with NYS sending down tons of requirements it has tripled the paper work. I am only a tech teacher so when I was approached about a project to input student scores in Excel and see if we have had an increase in those scores this year I thought why not... challenging.. yes, but let me see if I could and do it all in one month.
Well it was the proverbial snowball growing as it moved. I stressed, I over ate the last week, I worked early days and late nights and woke up in the night thinking about the work. It was in constant prayer as the boss wasn't even sure what he was looking for. I was concerned that after all this work he'd say,"That's not what I hoped for." I prayed and questioned my judgment daily.
Yesterday I turned it all in and he said, "Exactly what I need. I don't know where to begin to Thank You." The Thanks was nice but the words, "Exactly what I need" let me know the work wasn't a waste of time but an answer to prayer.
I also had my classes to do so the work was done in and around that but 1500 students plus staff were added with scaled scores for special testing and evaluated for percentages of growth. I danced to my own "head music" for a few minutes and then Praised God that even when we didn't know what to look for he worked it out perfectly. So Game Over! Now it is back to the damage I have done to my eating and exercise schedule.
