Good Day at School
Monday, March 25, 2013
We had snow last night, but no delay and school was held as scheduled. I was glad because Spring Break starts on Friday for students and we needed to get a day of classes in today. We have already had five snow days and have added those days on in June. People often think teachers like snow days, but I do not. It just causes disrutpion to the educational process and I would rather have those days off in June than on some unpredictable, unscheduled day. It seems often now disruptions to the educational process are also caused by over-testing. Writing Assement, Acuity, Tech Steps, Westest and others take students from classes where they would be receiving instruction. I belive assessment is necessary, but it seems we have become such a digital, data driven society that the students are suffering as a result.
