Test Results

Way back in December, I concluded teaching a group of students who were studying for a proficiency exam.  Some were studying for the FCE and some were studying for the CAE.  Some were a bit shaky and took both exams.

I really enjoyed teaching them and, if I am being honest, really miss the class.  The odd thing about the class is that it kind of ended abruptly.  Partly that was my fault.  When the preparation course was done, I took some time off to regroup or recharge–I am not really sure.  I just wanted to get out of the school.  It also coincided with a possible work stoppage (or strike) and I wasn’t really feeling in the loop for the whole thing.  While I was off, the students took the test and quickly, and also quietly, departed for their countries or to other vacation destinations.  A few stuck around to give me their impressions of the test, but others were just gone.

I got caught up in a lot of stuff happening in my life and forgot to ask about their test scores–which the school registrar has access to, once they have been sent to the students.  Today, asked about them and was quite overjoyed to discover that all but one of the students passed their exams.  The students who took both exams also passed both of them. This was great.  I am so proud of them.

This was phenomenal news and it had me bouncing up and down for joy for quite some time.  Anyone who ran into me couldn’t believe how happy I was.  As I said, I was happy for them and I was also happy for myself.  I wasn’t sure I was teaching them effectively, but I am so glad that they could get over the hurdle.

In case any of them are still reading this blog, Congratulations!!!

Obviously this was Today’s Perfect Moment.
