Southside Elementary School is a great place to work. I personally feel as if we are trying to work as hard as we possibly can to help our students achieve every day. I wish that there was more parent and community involvement, but everyone has to realize that the door swings both ways. We need the support of parents to help their kids when they get home from school. We can only do so much while they are here in our care. We offer activities such as Parents' Night In, which offers fun activities and ideas of how to help students at home, but our attendance is often between 50-150 parents and students. It is my hope that one day we can all collaborate together with parents, students, and community so that everyone can be involved in working toward the same goal of giving the children of Giles County the Education they not only need, but that they deserve.
School has some good teachers. Some very bad ones. Hopefully they realize they need to imrove. Target is not where they want to be. Good Standing is.
As a parent of former students at Southside Elementary, I'd highly recommend Mrs. Cesarini because of her excellent teaching skills, caring and compassion for students, consistency, and the additional efforts she makes for students. Examples include after-school one-on-one tutoring in math for our daughter, excellent parent-teacher conferences where the parent walks away knowing what areas the child is excelling and those that need improvement. It is evident each day she truly loves teaching and helping our children become better students and people.
