I would rate a 2 for teacher. My daughter is in the 7th grade believe me she has always told me everything. She has made her first D i was real upset. But she did tell me that some of the teachers did not actually teach they would just tell you what to do and expect them to understand. And on test it would be open book sometimes well that is not teaching her anything. Also gives pop up quizez when other kids do not know how to act. I notice the scoring is low in the school. I have planed on moving to find a better school or what should I do. I have already had a confrence with the principal and the teacher I was having problems with in reference to problems in class and a 0 on a quiz.
