WAITING GAME

| 1 Comment

Dmcdowell of A History Teacher confirms that test-anxiety isn’t just for students. He describes his emotions as his AP World History students, after covering 10,000 years in 34 weeks, take the year-end exam.

In some ways, I feel like an old-time expectant father, pacing in the hallway. I have done all I can, I sat with those who showed up for their morning classes, joked around with them, trying to lighten the mood. I answered last minute frantic questions all the way up to the time they entered the rooms to take the exam. Most worked hard for this and they deserve to do well. Now I sit in the library, then my office, waiting.

We hope he gets to pass out cigars, too. (Though not to the kids, of course.)
