  1. “Let me instead be more aware in my classroom today of what my kids really need, something more than expertise in the language, namely to feel good about themselves, and that they have value and importance in this world. Help them feel happy today, oh Lord, you from whom all things come….Make me an instrument of your peace, not just for them, but for me as well.”
    Oh, amen. Again and again.

  2. I think Lori picked out the most important phrase/sentiment in the prayer! Doesn’t it really all boil down to this?
    A week has passed since Susie Gross left us and I have been reflecting, processing and trying to absorb all of what she said. I think though, that the message she was sent to give me was “Love kids BECAUSE of who they are not “in spite” of who they are. May I truly feel “Bobby I love you because you….. NOT “Bobby I love you “but…..you really need to ….” That does NOT come naturally so if it happens it will be of YOU!
    So Ben, I will add a line to your beautiful prayer: “Dear Lord, please enable me to love my students like you love us, BECAUSE of who we are and not “in spite” of who we are…. Amen!
    Thank you Susie…

  3. We are currently giving the AAPPL Exam in our classes this week.
    I just did my first Spanish 1 Period which has been OWI/Invisibles/NT for 70% of the time.
    All student except one got Novice Mid or above on Listening and Reading
    A number of students got Novice High on Listening or Reading (the target according to the Ohio state Standards is Novice High for the end of SPANISH TWO, not Spanish 1)
    About 5-6 students got an intermediate level on reading and/or listening (they are NOT heritage speakers)
    Once we are completely done testing I will pull all the data together.
    Looks like we will win either way: If the trad classes get the same as us or lower than us.
    If we get the same as the trad classes on this tests we have to keep in mind that I am using: No textbook, little to no output, no targets, no homework, few assessments.

    1. Greg please do write something up with data/charts. This could definitely enlighten data-driven admin. If anything just share with us your data. Are you the dept. chair? I might be bumped up next year PLUS I might be sitting in on the interviews for our next hire in our dept. I definitely want to move it into more CI based.
