I can say with my whole heart that I am so happy that the STAAR test is over... well for most. The testing is stressful for both student and teacher. The late nights worrying if you covered everything, should you do this or do that... The long days and early mornings when you change your mind on the approach to take on a TEK. The phone calls, emails, and worries you try and sooth from both parents and students. There is so much more that I can say and describe, but at this point I am just giving THANKS that for me it is over and I can now take my knowledge from these experiences and try to create a better path to follow next year.
God Bless the teachers who are in tested subjects, for they have a bit more stress on their shoulders than those who are in an area not tested.
