when the most unstable student I've ever taught sees her Lexile score improve by 150 points since September.
when the most combative student I've ever taught sees her Lexile score improve by 125 points since September.
I teach because I have to. In all the jobs I've had to pay my way through life, only teaching has (as of today) not left an empty feeling. This is my calling; and sometimes I feel that I chose to teach as much as teaching chose me. *Note: The thoughts expressed here are my own and not intended to represent the school or district I work for.
