HOLY COW everyone!!!!!! I knew the test results would be great, but I was unprepared for these totally EXTRAORDINARY results!!!! You just have to check out http://www.schooldigger.com/go/MI/schoolrank.aspx?level=3 and see the data for yourself. It's INCREDIBLY PHENOMINAL!!!! Here is a summary of the facts...
In reading, you went from the 501st ranked school in the state to the 282nd ranked school. That’s an improvement of TWO HUNDRED nineteen places!!!!
- This improvement in reading makes you the 35th MOST IMPROVED high school in the entire state!!!!!
In writing, you went from the 180th ranked school in Michigan to the 24th—that’s right, the TWENTY-FOURTH—ranked school in the state!!! That’s an improvement of ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-SIX places!!!!
- Just over three-fourths of you were proficient—or better—in writing: 75.3%!!!!

THIS is why I am so tough on you all. Do you now see what you are capable of?!? This is TREMENDOUS!!! This is the stuff dreams are made of—the stuff films are made of. You all are proof that ANYTHING is possible! Even when the state’s expectations went up 26%, you all rose to the challenge… and succeeded!!!! I’ve never been so proud of a group of students. Way to go seniors J (That’s right, you’re seniors now.)
Let’s make sure to continue this trend next year! You’ve done some great things, but let’s continue them. Fantastic… just FANTASTIC job everyone. You really are that which inspires!

A brief introduction
Well hello there everyone :)! Welcome to Teacher Who?'s website. Here you'll find LOTS of resources that should be of great use to you. On this home page, you'll find lots of links that should prove very useful. If you're looking for your grades... use the link to Star's Parent Portal; if you desire to watch a good music video or two, be sure to check out Nickelback's "If Everyone Cared"; if you want to laugh... be sure to check out Strongbad's e-mail or the youtube video of me dancing; and if you want to learn more about me (and why I call myself Teacher Who?)...make sure to click the "About Me" tab at the top.
There are lots of other cool things too. If you want to get in contact with me or follow me on twitter, you can find my information to the right. And be sure to use the links along the top of this page to find whatever you need. If you're absent or misplace your lesson plan, just click your class to download another. If you need some assistance with writing--whether it be looking up a rubric, finding an assignment, or using a graphic organizer to help you draft--be sure to get what you need from the writing lab tab. I could explain the rest of the tabs, but I'll let you explore on your own and find out how useful they can be. Enjoy! :)
