After hearing how some of the teachers/staff speak to the children, I am tempted to go up there and observe. I remember frequently visiting his Elementary, Timber Creek, and being absolutely appalled when I saw the way some of the staff treated the children!!! This has been the most miserable school year of my childs life, and he is a star student-honor roll with no behavioral problems to speak of. Telling loud students to "Shut up", is a form of verbal abuse, and should never be said no matter how frustrated a teacher is. People who cannot deal with normal child behavior have NO business working with them! I'm not really sure why fourth graders need to learn pre algebraic expressions when basic math skills should be mastered first, ex: long division, fractions, and decimals! It is bad enough that because of standardized testing and all the work that goes into preparing for the TAKS, children are not retaining enough information as it is!

This school does not encourage parental involvement. It is impossible to speak to school administration about school issues. Teachers are not experienced with children with learning disabilities. This school does not accommodate children with learning disabilities very well.

I believe Livingston Intermediate is a school that is directed to help our children, even the most needy. They provide art classes and office aide positions to children who are interested and have the capacity of obtaining such privileged position and have good grades. However, my concern is that they need more teacher's aides to help in mainstream classrooms. Behavior problems sometimes get in the way of teaching and giving special attention to a child in need of help. Most teachers are interested in helping their students but because of behavior interruptions, they have to stop in the middle of their lesson to deal with a problem student.
