Posted September 2, 2012

Hello everyone, I have to say that I had given up on our commuinty's school leaders, but this past year meeting this new vice principal in my daughter's school give me uch a great hope. You have to meet her in person to see what I am talking about. She has turned the school around as far as motiviting the kids, dicipline, bullying, uniform, new programs and hearing parent voices. She is out in the front every morning with a smile greeting and talking to everyone like we are her family. the kids look up to her and my daughter always says I want to be just like Dr. Sarwary. Thank you for being the positive role model for my daughter and me. Because of your words of encouragment I got my GED and driver licence and I will be going to college.

Hello to everyone, one of my concerns is how some of the teachers speak to the children. Granted the majority of the children are of hispanic descent, but that should not be used as an excuse to talk to the children as if they were dumb, or idiots and assume that a child has a mental problem because they are having some emotional problems. I just feel that some teachers should treat their class as if they're their own.
