The 9th grade teachers appear to be just putting in their time, with little care for the students. They are at times sarcastic and lack enthusiasm. This is not an inspiring learning environment. Students are singled out and embarrassed in the classroom for not knowing the correct answer or not having a check for the chorus trip. This could be a truly great school but it is not. I hope to see the teachers put more effort and love into their work. They have the power to change the course of their students lives for the better.
