All of my grades are finalized!
The last day of the grading period was last Tuesday, March 9th, but you know you never have all the grades in when they are due. I have been more patient and understanding with my students, but when does being patient become enabling? I always want the grades to be a true reflection of a student’s ability, and being unorganized and late can be recorded on anther section of the report card.
This school year has be so difficult for students and teachers alike, so I will continue to be as patient as I can possibly be. I do have a deadline, and I let students hand in work until the very last minute I can. That however leads to more stress for me when trying to locate missing assignments and complete the grades on time.
I am SO RELIEVED right now though. I don’t have to worry about this again until June. I have the rest of the evening to myself, and so many things I want to do. That is a good problem to have!
I am participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge for the month of March. I will be posting every day this month. It is sponsored by twowritingteachers.org. #SOL21
