Things that are going well


You are very calm in the face of
technological failures
You also figured out things for them to
be working on.
When I glanced around the room at
10:21, it looked like all students where
on task and working in their group.
Its really nice to see the students
doing most of the work whenever I
come in, as 6th graders they should be
and you should be doing more
facilitating, which you are.
Wow, what a great social studies unit,
instead of just doing some worksheets,
youre using technology, arts, L.A.integrating several subjects and the
students seem so into it.
Again your interactions with the
students are so very appropriate, you
laugh with them and yet push them to
do more. You know when to use a stern
voice to get them on task.
