This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
I feel immeasurable gratitude for all the parents I've met and worked with this year. Teller is an amazing school in no small part because of its dedicated community of parent volunteers, people who give so much of their time, effort and money to help benefit the all the students who call Teller home.
This is our 3rd year at Teller, with 2 children, and we have had wonderful experiences with the teachers. We love the "extras" that our kids get at Teller, including music, art, PE and a trip to the library every week. The PTA and community involvement is pretty amazing. If it weren't for the difficulties we have experienced with leadership, particularly the principal, this rating would be great rather than good.
This is my 5th year at Teller and I feel very fortunate to send my two children here. Our school has the most amazing staff and we are fortunate to have a huge music program, awesome arts and PE and also the best librarian around. The kids are encouraged and rewarded for good behavior, taught valuable character traits weekly, they have monthly pep rallys, every grade performs on stage, I can go on and on. The teachers and parents are very involved, it is a wonderful community to belong to. We are so lucky to live in this great neighborhood and go to Teller Elementary!!!!
My child's 1st grade teacher was phenomenal. Very compassionate and listened well to parental concerns. 2nd grade teacher was wonderfully compassionate too. The leadership tends to be the issue at this school, and if there is a bad apple of a teacher the leadership shows no accountability.
One teacher in the fourth grade is verbally abusive to students she does not like. I have witnessed her negatively label students she does not care for in front of classmates. Her affect is strange and abrasive. My child did not initially report comments she was hearing, but when she did I was appalled. I witnessed some of the comments on the playground after school as well.
