With a pounding headache, she wonders how she will ever be able to survive the upcoming months with the horrible pressure put on her because of the FCAT. She has gone through this several times, but each time it only gets worse. She wonders, why are they putting this type of pressure on her? Why can’t she have a normal classroom day where she can teach her own curriculum, instead of worrying about explaining and grading Show and Not Tells and FCAT math practice day 12. “I honestly feel as if my head is going to convulse any time soon.” she says with her dry and droopy eyes.

    to reap
    the education of a nation, without such shaky grounds. and much more money.

He felt that if he messed this up, it would be all his fault, he would have murdered the only chance for Beach High to get the A for his school. This had been lectured to him everyday for the past 2 weeks. In those two horrifically long weeks, he had been driven to near insanity by the repetitve “Show not Tell” excercises. He looked down at his hands, remembering the nightmare he had last night. Mr. “Show not Tell” was his teacher, and that was all he was allowed to learn for the rest of eternity.
