Finally Made the Grade
With only a few days to spare before grades are officially due, I've FINALLY finished all of my grading, and posted final grades, for the Spring 2014 semester.
The last thing I graded was the final exam for my Middle Childhood class, and, as I did with my Advanced Theory final described in an earlier blog entry, I threw in a "relax-and-breathe-for-a-moment-cuz-you-can't-get-this-wrong" item: "What is the most important thing you learned about yourself this semester?"
Couldn't resist sharing this answer with you:
"I learned that I should really look into what a class actually is before enrolling in it, and to see if I'm interested in it."
Hmmmmm...what exactly was this student trying to tell me?
Thankfully, there were also answers like this:
"To believe in myself. I never trusted my intelligence until I applied myself to this class. Thank you, Kathie. Your teaching style has made my performance as a student increase greatly."
