This past week was conference week at my school. Nothing out of the ordinary happened during conferences, I shared as many positives as I could with the parents and a couple of areas to work on. I always share data to indicate the growth a student has made in class, even if the student is still not reaching benchmark. After all, it is just as important that they are making progress. After this, the parents and I share a few stories and laughs, then shakes hands. If the student is with them, I give them a hug, and then it is on to the next conference. I count down the minutes until I can get home and slip into my PJ's, just to repeat the same routine tomorrow.
EXCEPTsomething different happened the next day this year......I had a note on my desk from a student who had attended a conference with her mother. This is what the note said.......
"Teachers make great thieves"...ever heard that quote? It is a very true! Most of our great ideas are "stolen" from someone else. Not all ideas on this blog are mine. I try to give credit where credit is due. However, if you find that an idea should have been given credit but wasn't, please let me know.
