What does it feel like to try something new or take on a new challenge? On the front end, there might be excitement or worry. Eventually, however, those new or challenging experiences lead to growth. For many of our state’s students, this year was the first time they took TNReady, the new state test designed to assess a student’s real understanding and give teachers and parents valuable information on their student’s growth.
Like many people who try new things, some Tennessee students felt excitement or worry before the new assessment. Fortunately, many of these students had parents and teachers right there with them, ready with reassurance and encouragement, reminding them that they had the knowledge and skills to meet this new challenge head on. Here are some of these Tennessee parents and teachers who went the extra mile to reassure, reaffirm, and refocus their young scholars.

“I am ready for TNReady, but I think that TNReady is not ready for me!” – One of my students
