This week in class we learned about how to create a rubric and a little about assessments and the grading system. I cant wait until i have the opportunity to teach children things that they will take and build upon for their future. I remember when I was young and I would go to a class that I was really excited about. I would think about it the night before and ponder as to what the day would hold for me….. I think that teaching is really the profession that I am intended to pursue!!! Here is the rubric that I created …
