My district doesn't use letter grades at all in elementary. They do grade, but it's a simple meets/exceeds/approaches expectations. If they did, though, a B would be equivalent to meeting expectations - and what is wrong with that? Certainly nothing to worry over. Please don't be like my sister who, after my niece got a 99% on a test, asked her teacher what her daughter needed to do to improve her grades. This was also in elementary school.

I've just been feeling mentally exhausted from it, so even while reading along I'm not always making the extra effort to reply.
I was sick so much less when I had the eval job than I ever was when I was in the classroom. I hope this isn't an indication of things to come.
