bad bad horible terrible disaster place disgrace 2 the world

Reviewed on

The school is a good school, but do not approve of a teacher named Don Smith as from what I have been told he uses profanity in his classroom which is not acceptable as I have researched this problem and it is not legal for a teacher to use profanity when teaching young adults when you should be a role model.  I would appreciate it if the district would check into this matter. There are Christian students attending this school and bad language to me shows no diplomacy.  Thank You...
