i agree that some of the teachers do need improvement.both of my children had teachers who were pregnant last year,and they would come home from school and tell me all about their teachers pregnancy cravings,doctor visits,possiable names for the baby,but then when we work on their homework,they would have no idea what they were suspost to be doing.and when i would ask why they were not paying attention to the teacher when she was teaching them,they would say,well she didnt show us how to do it,she told us to do it before we left for the bus,so i would ask well what did yall do all day then,they would say oh well we listened to her tell us about the baby...omg i mean really what is my tax money paying for?????not to mention a 5th grade teacher i will leave her namless out of respect,but she dose nothing but yell at her students,i am very involded with my childrens education and i have to say that there have been numorise times i have been at that school and heard that women yelling at them kids in the most hateful manner,i cant belive that she has not lost her job and i pray to god that neither one of my children end up with her next year...sincerly a very concernd parent!!!!!!!!
Some of the teachers do need improvement. I recently had the occasion to help out with a party in one of the classrooms. Having arrived early, I sat in on a class in progress. When asked by a student " When does Winter start?" the teacher replied, "I think the 1st. of December." The student then asked, "When does Spring begin?" The teacher replied, "The first part of April." Come on...really!!!
some of the teachers need improvement but the rest i love it.
