I want to tell the Teachers of Noah Webster -Mesa THANK YOU! Your job is hard, your pay is too low, and you have to please 25-30 different parents, countless administration rules and codes, and still succeed at helping raise our children.
One of my children gets their homework done in 20 minutes, one in about 30 minutes and another can take 45 minutes. They have the same amount of homework. I don't feel like it would be better to tailor the amount of homework to each child.
The curriculum can be hard. The demands are high, and I find that my children are encouraged when they are struggling, praised when they master it, and always expected to do their best, and keep trying.
I think that this school does a very good job of teaching and promoting honesty, integrity and fairness. I do think that many Noah Webster parents feel that their child is "special" and therefore never a bully, instigator or liar, and this undermines the entire process.
