things i do for work

so i’ve been tweeting about this thing called a “taks video.” the TAKS test is the benchmark test students take here in TX [although it’s changing to STAAR next year]. i make “motivational” videos for the students…
here’s the latest:
[sorry about the quality…it’s a huge file and it’s on youtube! too big for vimeo…].



  1. Oh man, I HATED giving the staar test! I thought it was boring as a student… as a teacher, it's even more excruciating. It's not like a photo teacher has a lot of papers to grade… I just played words with friends on my phone with students as they finished. Helped to pass the time!

  2. Oh my gosh. I HATED the TAKS test. Gahhhhhhh.
    Where in Texas are you? I was in San Antonio.
    The beginning of the video is hilarious, and I love all of those kids. HA
    Good job on the video ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. haha administering the test can definitely be boring! i used to make to-do lists, etc ๐Ÿ™‚

    i live in houston! if you're not in SA anymore – where are you? ๐Ÿ™‚
