):D On May 9, the students from my Algebra I classes were required to take the new end-of-course Algebra I test that Texas now requires as part of the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness. Yesterday afternoon, I was given a copy of the results. 100% of my students passed.

i once considered going into teaching, i remember a time in calculus when my prof was trying to describe the shape of a function of 2 variables where a point could be both a local minimum and maximum and i suggested a pringles chip. he kind of raised up on his toes and said "i like that" and i felt like i had contributed. i did a little graduate teaching where i was more discouraged than encouraged, but i know what its like when you reach *someone*. congratulations.

):o I'm the only teacher there that has Algebra I classes. I didn't get to see the scores for any other subject.
