I got a little mini-promotion today. No extra money or anything, but I am in charge of the 504 students at my school. In plain English, those are the students who qualify for testing accomodations like extra time or a small group setting but not for special education services. I have to call their parents to find out if they want accomodations for LEAP (Louisiana's standardized testing) since most of the IAPs are way out of date, as much as 4 1/2 years old. That's what evacuation all over the country will do for a kid.
They must be starting to trust me and give up some of their control.
We also had two new teachers start today, 2nd and 3rd grade. We're now fully staffed. Hopefully that lasts.
