Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Significant Academic Gains

Well, the results are in.  It’s the last day of school.  Desks have been emptied, posters have been taken down, shelves have been covered, and the only thing left to do is celebrate our Big Goals.

We met them, by the way.

My final classroom average reading growth was 1.5 years of growth!  4 of my kids grew 2 years or more in reading!  Seeing their success is just incredible.

Our final math average was 85%!  They really cranked it up at the end there, and I know they will be so excited when I tell them about the final growth.  I am so proud of them.  I will miss them all.

    Congratulations on meeting your Big Goals! I’m going to the Bay Area for Induction next week. I hope I can be as successful in the classroom as you.

    Thanks! How exciting for you to be moving out here! Do you know what you will be teaching yet? If there’s anything I can do to help out, don’t hesitate to ask!

  3. Congrats! What a great way to end the year!
