Things I Learned in Today’s Professional Development

It’s only “teaching to the test” if you call it “teaching to the test.” If you call it “Test Prep Academy,” it’s best practice.

I’m glad my superiors explained this to me slowly and carefully while swinging a pocket watch and chanting the mantra “we do not teach to the test,” because when I first saw the schedule for the next two months I was starting to wonder why I became a teacher.

But “Test Prep Academy” sounds super fun, guys!!! Can we all wear fatigues?!
