My child is scared of his teacher - Zakharian. She is so rude.
Zakharian wants parents to toady her, she never helped me with homework and when I asked her why she told me that she was not going to teach me.
If so, then why school sends me letters asking parents to cooperate with school, with teachers to help students to upgrade? What is the role of the teacher? If the student doesn't understand the homework and parent is unable to help the student then WHOM SHOULD PARENT ASK FOR HELP?
We asked to change the teacher in order to defend my son's psychological health, his willingness to study, this is our responsibility as parents and school replied me that they can't. So, I am changing his school.
I am subscribed to all educational programs from White House, government, I see how much money this country spends on students, teachers, educational infrastructures to make children to love to study, to be able to understand every subject as deep as possible and what does Zakharian today? She frighten her student? She disappoints her student?
I have done and am doing a tremendous job with my son to help him with his school, to make him love science and do not want to stop it just because of wrong person in his life.
P.S. They leave children inattentive in yard.. We were so lucky that my so didn't loose his eye, thanks to God!

My 3rd grader has lots of homeworks 10-12 pages/day. Mostly are math plus all the daily reading, never had science. Past spring vacation had homework packet (math) almost 20 sheets, mostly both sides. The kid always goes to bed late at night and sometimes goes to school late because of doing homework. And the worst thing is the kid doesn't understand what he/she learned at school, barely understand homework. I feel so sorry to my kid and I have to quit my job to stay home and help her with all homeworks. My kid is a quick learner for everything but I don't know what a problem!

I attended this great school over 30 years ago from kindergarten through 6th grade. I'm certainly not surprised to hear that it still remains that way.. Great childhood memories from back in the day! Keep up the good work John Marshall!
I attended John Marshall 50 years ago. It was a great school then; and I'm pleased to see that a current parent agrees. Lots of my classmates from there still keep in touch (facilitated by Facebook). All of my teachers there were superb, but especially notable was kindergarten teacher Alice Ross Livsey, who passed away about 20 years ago. She inspired kids to do their best and to strive for goals they might never have dreamed of.
Friends from there and I often marvel at how lucky we were to have had such a fine start. (I now have a Ph.D. from a British university, was a college professor for 10 years, and am currently a diplomat with U.S. Department of State.)
Great School from a mom of a 1st grader and 5th grader that have both been going there since Kinder...Great Teachers, Communications and great staff. All care about the students and their success. California Distinguished school and proves it. My kids both are doing excellent and advanced in all areas and due to partly to my kids hard work, but mostly to the teachers who set high expectations and high standards because they know the kids can reach those goals. Thanks to John Marshall, my older daughter is prepared for the more difficult years ahead and have helped instill good study habits.
