Truman School 3

La maestra de mi hijo hablaba un espa ol muy b sico y el primer lenguaje de mi hijo era el espa ol, fue dif cil la comunicaci n por que el espa ol de la maestra era muy malo (aunque ella siempre hizo su mejor esfuerzo) pero mi hijo no entend a el espa ol de la maestra, fue un poco frustrante, pero sin mayores consecuencias, este season escolar parece que sera bilingue de kinder hasta el 8. Esto es decisivo para ver si lo dejo aqu , o lo cambio, por que definitivamente quiero que mi hijo hable ingles y espa ol a la perfecci n,

Truman School 3

Unfortunately, the teachers (enthusiastic or otherwise) are at a serious disadvantage at Truman due to the overwhelming number of students that do not speak English as a first language. Teachers should not be expected to fulfill curriculum requirements AND teach basic English language at the same time. All parties are losing out...and we're taking our son elsewhere before he gets lost in the shuffle.
