Students will begin taking their grade level STAAR Test (state standardized test) coming up this month. We need to appreciate them for working so incredibly hard this year to get ready. However, we also need to remind ourselves as educators that we need to be appreciated too.
As dedicated educators, we have also worked incredibly hard educating the students. We found this great article for you on the website, Edutopia:
Remember, we have ALL worked hard to get to this point of the school year. Relax, have fun, appreciate both yourself and your students, and remind yourself not to count down the final days until summer.... instead, count the number of opportunities you have left to make a difference in the life of your students.
