State testing was this week, and in Texas, it was our first stab at a new assessment – the STAAR. Because I don’t have a class of my own, I tested individual students across three days. While this may sound like a vacation from the everyday routine of work, I can assure you that it’s not. Sitting and staring at one student all day is inexplicably exhausting. I’m glad it’s over, and I’m ready for the April round to come and go as well!
In terms of updates, I’ve received several e-mails about trouble viewing the slideshows. Because of bandwidth limits, I’m having to compress the pictures on my site more than I’d like, and this is making the slideshows behave in a wonky way, especially on non-Mac systems. I’ve disabled the slideshows until I can figure this out. You can still click on any image to enlarge it, and you can click on next underneath the pictures to scroll through the larger images. I hope this helps!
