Allison Elementary School Reviews
This is for the above parent who reviewed the school. It used to be teachers were respected enough that when they say a child is a problem, the parent took them home and introduced them to a belt by one or both of the parents. It has come to my attention helping teachers that some parents feel their children are perfect and believe the child over the teacher and are creating a negative environment for the rest of the children. That being said, teachers are no different then the rest of us and have good or bad days. My suggestion to try to get your child's year off right is this. Call the office and leave a message for the teacher that you would like to make an appointment to talk with them. Meet them with an open mind and trusting that they know what they are talking about as they have your child when you are gone and have no reason to lie about them. I can tell you that teachers love to come to work when they have great kids. Treat child accordingly and keep in communication with this teacher so you both can take measures to make this child realize that they are not in charge and it is disrespectful to interrupt the teacher during class time when they have not been called on. If you feel that your child is above this teacher, your child will sense that and use you against the teacher. Children can read us very well and as a parent you are half of the team and the teacher is the other half. Work together so that child understands they have no support for bad behavior and you support your teacher all the way. This will help everybody.
my son is currently attending this school i thought it would be a beter school for my child but my child no longer wants to go to school. The teacher that my child received has close to 30 students at one time and NO TEACHERS AID!!!!!!! I spoke to the teacher reguarding my child and i was told my child is disruptive so he is ignored by the teacer and tells the students to do the same.... I feel the teacher has given up on my child is labeling my child as a problem...Ifeel children should not be ignored.. I still cant believe the teacher told me this to my face. As a parent this is crushing especially since school just started on the 2nd of THIS MONTH!!!!!!!
