Debra Perry, principal - tough job and all tough jobs need more pats on the back!

Develops grit: Neutral

Being "late" is OK. Homework, attendance... no one puts any fear in students to "get it done and get it in on time." I think some kids could use a little OMG if I don't... Eekk!

Overall:

New teacher to DCS this year ... a new teacher to teaching for 7th graders. Surely a tough year for her but my son had a great experience and likes and respects her a lot.

Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective
Submitted by a parent · August 27, 2015
Totally depends on the individual teacher. Some are great, others are atrocious. Overall they tend to be good.
