I had my usual strange dreams this weekend. The worst one was about the state-mandated testing (Standardized Testing and Reporting) which start this morning.
Saturday night I was troubled by dreams of one of our most challenging second graders: He is smart and articulate, but he is also the most argumentative, interruptive, disruptive...you get my drift? He'll probably grow up to be a lawyer? Politician? CEO? But right now? He's my nightmare.
In my dream, he had scribbled over the entire test packet, both in a black marker and a pink highligher. And he had gone ahead, far far ahead of the stop signs. Is this a premonition of the week to come? Save me...
(Update: I'm assigned to the other classroom for the testing so I don't even have to worry about this little dude!)
