reading language teacher casey burrahm is sweet as pie to your face and watch out, different behind your back. very 2 faced individual, should'nt be allowed near children or any position where social interaction exists. very low credibility in my book, you may ask for another teacher you could actually trust. avoid this teacher, have had negative experience with her.

We have 5 children in school at Community and they are doing well.The teachers and Mr.Yoes are wonderful.We hope we never have to transfer because We don't think our children will advance as well at another school.This school is an A+ to our family.

My children have prospered at Community Elementary. This is a school that fosters high moral character as well as strong academics for those who want to learn.
