It has been a busy week! I have been trying to wind everything down for the year, so I have had no spare time to show you these two precious girls. Our niece (Kasey's DD) spent Memorial Day with us, so I took advantage of that to practice some more with my new lens. It was nice (and actually easier) to photograph someone else's child for a change. We got to pick up our new computers (all of KISD got new MacBooks), so I've been trying to transfer and back up all of my stuff. I am finally getting around to posting these. I hope you enjoy!
p.s. I don't think I've posted on the blog to brag on myself. We got our TAKS scores back a few weeks ago, and ALL of my juniors passed. I know you may be thinking "Melissa, you teach Pre-Cal and Calculus--they should all pass." I would reply to you that I have many students who are in my class but don't necessarily belong there. For example, Mommy and Daddy think little Johnny is a genius and belongs in all of the hard classes even though Johnny can't solve x + 8 = 10. It was not a guarantee that they would all pass.
And regarding those who DO belong in my class--67% of my juniors got commended. I had one girl get all 60 questions correct, 2 miss only 1 question, and 4 miss only 2 questions!
Now if only my AP kids do so well on their AP exam...
