Last week the students were extremely confused because they hadn't had a permanent teacher for their Spanish class. Not sure if the position had been filled yet, but the students were worried that their grades were not going to be documented in the grade book. This is to make sure so that they would have something to show to their parents. With me coming in on the tail end of things and not knowing exactly what was going on, I contacted the administrative staff to see if it was possible that someone could come and speak with the students and explain to them exactly how their grades were going to be recored and when. I also contacted to departmental chair to verify when their papers were going to be graded and on what grading scale. After being there a few days with the students and trying to solve all of thier questions and concerns, the students thanked me for clairfying the information that they weren't receiving. To them, it was a like a load lifted off of their shoulders, becasue now, they have a sense of direction. Even though it wasn't much, I was glad I could be of help to those kids to make sure they were on the right track. Very rewarding!!
