At the end of this semester and this version of portfolio grading 1.0 I have been humbled by the flexibility afforded me from my students, my kids. As I kick around a better way to have all learners in the room feel like they have skin in the game, it has been muddy, unclear, frustrating, and at times infuriating, but…
And this is where I pause in disbelief
They ran with me. They gave me ideas to make it better. And in the end, they gave me grace as well as their best work, but most importantly they gave me their trust.
I cannot ask for more and yet I do daily.
With a new semester on the horizon, I am hoping to live up to their hearts. I am hoping to deliver, a little closer, to what they all need. I am hoping that each day, I can live up to their hearts.
