Advocacy: One Maryland Teacher Speaks Out

When we KNOW that 60% of Maryland students can not pass proficiency tests for reading, this third grade teacher's revelation in her own words, is very powerful.

"Let's think about this...I, a General Ed. teacher, have a class of 30 amazing kids. My 4 team members (also General Ed. Teachers) have a class of their own. They too have classes ranging from 28-31 amazing kids. Huge group of third graders, right?!  ...KEEP GOING...

To clarify Gen. Ed. Teachers' responsibilities: My team teaches Science (includes READING AND WRITING), Social Studies (INCLUDES READING AND WRITING), Math (Includes READING AND WRITING) yes, math  , Grammar (obvious) READING , WRITING in response to READING, Essay WRITING, and Health (I think u get it).

....Who still wants to be a teacher???

...Keep going...

My class alone includes:

        • 3 English Language Learners
        • 5 Below Grade Level Readers
        • 9 on-grade Level Readers
        • 13 Above Grade Readers (I split into 2 Reading Groups)

TOTAL OF 5 READING GROUPS!!! Wowza, right?!

...stay with me on this...

Not ONE child, in the ENTIRE TEAM, has a DIAGNOSIS of Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, nor Dyscalculia.
