Thursday’s #EduWin

Tomorrow marks the end of week seven of the school year. Which means six week grades were due Tuesday night. Which means I can see my advisees’ six week grades today. But first let’s back up.

A little context: my advisory was the chronically underachieving group in my smaller learning community last year. No one did horribly, but my advisory was the ‘paper in a little late’ or ‘not passing the benchmark’ or ‘talks too much and doesn’t focus’ group.

And while we can all agree that grades are dumb, my advisees six week grades blew me away. Half my advisory has a 3.5 or above, 80% have a 3.0 or higher and no one has anything below a 2.5.

That’s my #EduWin for today.
