I took a walk after I finished proctoring the geometry test. I needed to de-stress myself. I took the above pictures on the way. (Photography is a great way for me to unwind. I'm going to purchase a Nikon SLR soon! I can't wait to start taking real pictures.)
I met lots of the geometry kids and they were all happy. I don't know if that means they passed or not, but they felt confident. They never felt confident when they left my exams.
I got the following unsolicited e-mails. I really hope they are a good sign.
OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!! YESSSS THANK YOU SOO MUCH MS.Pod =]
i hope i passed the regents! it was okayy...
Aw thankks =) wish i did better...[86 on the final was not good enough for this girl] i hope i did good on the regents, i did really well on the MC, i was very nervous and idont know about the short answers.
Ms.POd the regents was not that badd. You really over prepared us
if anything. It was a fair test and a lot simpler then your class tests.
But what I'm trying to say is thank you very much for everything and for
being a GREAT TEACHER. The past 2 semesters
okay ms.POd im going to be so nervous like i was today. [until I know if I passed]
The margarita above was sitting with my name on it ready to relieve the stress the walk did not accomplish. The other drinks belong to my friends. We've decided to continue this tradition in the fall.
