Work work work

This week, CELDT testing began in Twin Rivers Unified School District. CELDT = California English Language Development Test.  "Students in kindergarten through grade twelve whose home language is not English are required by law to take an English skills test ... This test helps schools identify students who need to improve their skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English." (from the official website)

Because the speaking part of the test must be given individually, the district hires retired teachers to administer that section.  I'm on a team of 4 people who are assigned to Rio Linda High School and all its feeder schools.  There are 7500 students in TRUSD to be tested, 45 different languages although Spanish is the most prevalent.  We finished two schools this week.

I graduated from Rio Linda High School in 1966, my class was the first to attend all 4 years before graduating.

I am really enjoying working and glad for this opportunity.
