School Reviews

2   6/30/2010
My son was in Mrs. Woods-Long and she is the worst teacher I have ever encountered. She taught based on behavior not academics. She was absent a quarter of the year. My student never attended a single field trip and she would make inappropriate comments to the students like you are stuck on stupid. I have even heard about her flicking students on the ear. Complaints have been made to Mrs. Diskin and nothing was ever done about it.
