So happy I could burst

I just had to tell someone. It was regents week here ad my daughter has been totally stessed over these tests (has to pass them as a requirement for diploma) She got her scores yesterday--- Global Studies 82, Science 81, and Spanish (sure she failed) 71. Not only was I thrilled, It made me feel great to see the look of accomplishment on her face,because she struggles with school and tests.

Tell your daughter congrats!!! That is great!! I remember taking the regents and it was stressful then....10 years later the tests are more demanding so I can only imagine the stress these kids deal with each year!!

I see you are from Ashville, NY! I live in Dunkirk and am a teacher at Cassadaga Valley. Both my SILs are teachers at Panama which is where I am assuming your daughter attends school. One is the elementary art teacher and the other 7th and 8th grade English teacher. Small world!!

Bean wow it is a small world. I have cousins kids that go to Cassadaga. My daughter goes to Chautauqua Lake, and has trouble comprehending what she reads, I wanted her tested for a learning disability but the school will only test her if she falls into the bottom percentile (makes no sence to me, let her fail then test her)Up until now I have helped her,but it's to the point that I am having a hard time helping her understand things. they are going to try teacher intervention so maybe that will help, I hate to see her struggle so much.
