This school cares very little about teacher and teacher relations. Fourth grade teachers are all cousins and isolate themselves from the rest of the staff. One fourth grade teacher in particular actually bullies students and other staff members and administration allows her to get away with it. The EC teacher has a special relationship with the principal (even follows him from school to school when he is reassigned) making it difficult for the staff to feel comfortable when collaborating with her. Without the necessary colleague relationship between the teachers this school fails to meet the mark of an excellent school.
