Bates Academy 2

Bates academy One teacher threatened her with a yardstick & told her she was going to get her suspended the secretary is always unprofessional rude do not have customer service skills and I'm just tired my baby was bullied last year and this year not to mention they put them in the same classroom when I mentioned it to the principal the principal said she was being proactive however it wasn't until after I said something that they removed the little girl from classroom. As a working yet active parent I want my kid to fell safe and secure. The fact that anyone can walk in the school without a guard asking who they are is another major concern.

Ms. Dotson for being an awesome teacher, most of all being fair and stern. You are able to developed leaders and not followers because you step outside of the box and do what's best for each individual child. You develop a relationship with each child, and get to know them for your self.

There are a few great teachers at Bates I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Dotson who was awesome and stern, she was diligent in everything that she did with her students. Most of all she was fair.

I believe that most kids are compassionate, care and empathic mostly do to their home ethics and upbringing. Bates struggle with developing compassionate students because they do not pur enough emphasize on their behavioral management techniques.

If you do not have professional, honest staff that understand and uphold integrity then how can you put that put that in your students.
