Overall, this is a great school and a great staff as well, for the most part. Ms. Kanabjin was my son's 4th grade teacher and was a complete bully to him as well as other students. After discussing this issue with the principal, Ms. Kanabjin became even more rude to my son. Completely childish and unprofessional.
