Many students not ready for middle school have difficulty being quiet and respecting teachers. There are many very spoiled children who are difficult for the teachers to control. My child has difficulty hearing the teachers.
Many, many spoiled children who have never been taught to sit still and respect a teacher. Our family is counting the days until we are done with this school. The education my child has recieved has been half what it should have been.
The teachers at Hartford elementary school are awesome. They have approximately 35 or more children in a class and they do an outstanding job teaching. Every time I stopped by the class was attentive and engaged. My daughter came from Kyrene de la Estrella Elementary school in Ahwatukee, AZ. This school was rated a 9 out of 10 by great school. The location and school was nice, staff was professional, friendly and on point. The teachers were educated and some of them were awesome. My child struggled with their reading program that excelled at teaching sounds and pronunciation but used artificial words to do so which confused my child and she struggled advancing past k3 reading level, in k5 to beginning of 1st grade. She never attended daycare or preschool. Well we went to Hartford in the fall of 1st grade and with their reading program which is tied into UWM; she excelled and by the 2nd semester was reading at grade level, testing at 80% and above. Yes Hartford administration is not as informative, but they do what they can with the funding they receive and that's focus on your child's safety and education. Estrella is in a wealthy area and receives outside funding!
I have volunteered many times and love the creative ways teachers use to work with different ability students. I think parents need to hold their children more accountable so teachers can focus on instruction rather than behavior.
