Today, we went through the motions.
To begin the school year, all of the teachers and administrators meet up and discuss goals for the school year ahead of them. We learned more about NWEA, which would be the new standardized test to be used at Northside Middle School. This testing would happen three times per school year to help monitor the progress of learning. Most of the day was spent going over it and a few school-wide goals to keep in mind.
I got to know my CF (clinical faculty member) a little better. I feel lucky to have a whole year of learning together ahead of us. I was nervous at first, given that we had little time to talk between finding out about my placement and starting the school year. However, I am excited to begin prepping for the first student day and all of the days to follow!
