I just started as the 4th grade math/science teacher. I will say the students are a handful and there are no major materials in my classroom. But I can look past that. I am there for the kids. I am thankful I have finally achieved my dream of becoming a 4th grade teacher. I will pour my heart into these kids and use my own money to make my classroom my own. I LOVE IT THERE!

This is a ridiculous excuse for a school. It is a dangerous place where education takes a backseat to drugs and violence. There are no resources for the students to learn.
