As a former teacher at JEJES, I found that there was not enough parental support especially from students that were harder to manage in the classroom. There is only so much educators can do, we are there to teach the children. But if the students are disruptive to classroom proceeding, then the teachers are frustrated and the students suffer that are trying to learn and complete their assignments. I think Mrs. West needs to get tougher on discipline, those students there to disrupt need to be released to their parents. Teachers can not raise children, the students will tell you, 'you are not my mama, you can't tell me what to do'.
I am a parent of two boys at je johnson. I agree with the comment posted on dec 5th, 2004. I have been at the school to talk to her about my chiilden and i was treated very rudely. I think if she has to have an attitude with the parents, she should be replaced.
