Thank you for all of the teachers at Johnsonville Elementary that keep a positive attitude and willingness to help each child learn everyday. The teachers that remember why they wanted to teach in the first place. And, those teachers that can do what others can not. Those that go the extra mile. To make each child smile. You are what holds that School together.
If the teachers had substitutes or help to combat with the large number of students in each class. I believe that it would have a tremendous and positive effect on the moral and educating more students with difficulties learning each subject.
No. Some students have a positive outcome. But, the majority of the students do not. Low test scores and being understaffed shows on the current Teachers. And, their patience and drive to teach. Bad scores due to lack of teaching staff = Unhappy Students & Parents.
No. Too much bullying going on. Physical bullying. Multiple bus drivers drive the same buses. Not all information is communicated to the right person to help the children. Bullying is looked at as the child's problem. Not the Adults over looking them while the are attending school.
Bullying. Lack of motivation and moral from the Principal. Low funds for teachers. And, the teachers leave the students repeatedly through the school year. Leaving a sense of abandonedment and a broken stable curriculum.
4 Principles in 3 years we were there. My son has Asbergers and ADHD and they let him bang his head on the concrete floor until he got a concussion. When asked why they didn't stop him, they said because if someone got kicked or hit then they could sue us as parents. They did not even call to tell us what happened. He was at home and pessed out and threw up...that's how we found out. When we brought in up to the principal she made a fist with one hand and punched her other hand...then looked at us and said "Maybe he just needs some tuff love" mind you my other child goes here at the time as well and got honor roll the whole time she was there. Then they were insinuating it was an at home problem. Also the school would not test him for learning disabilities and said it was a maturity issue. Then they got upset with us when we took him to an outside doctor to get tested. The issue with us was not so much the teachers as it was the administration and their way of handling situations.
