Thanks to Ms. Woodward. She has been a wonderful teacher for my daughter, she develops great relationships with her students and so they listen to her when it really counts. Thank you for challenging and supporting PAPA students!
Leslye Padilla, the school social worker. That's her title, but she's more than that. She wears many hats, including making sure my son was able to return to school under a 504 Plan after his illness. She monitors his progress, his grades, and if he isn't doing well will ask for a review. She also allows my son to sleep on her couch in her office anytime. She's the person we rely on to make sure my son will meet his goal of graduating with his class. Because of Ms. Padilla, we know what classes my son has to take to graduate. Thank God for guardian angels at PAPA. I love PAPA because of people like Ms. Padilla. There are many teachers and staff like Ms. Padilla at PAPA, including the principal, but I had to choose one. Ms. Padilla exemplifies the type of teachers and staff that make up PAPA.
The principal sends emails to parents about issues arising at the school and encourages us to talk with our students about these issues. My son was recently suspended from school for engaging in a scuffle with another student. The manner in which they handled the suspension was done with integrity and fairness.
