Hi. My name is Josh Suarez, and I am a former student of this school. Sometimes, people say that publc schools are bad, and that private schools are way better. They say that private school teachers are better, and that you'll learn more from them. Well, I have experience from both types of schools, and I have to say is FAR better than the school I go to now. I learned most of everything from my public school teachers. I LOVED my public school teachers! I think the best were Ms. Frohman, Ms. Sasso, Ms. Watson, Ms. Casoria, Mrs. Eisenberg, Mrs. Brown, and Mrs. Carney. I learned a lot from them, and I still use their examples to this day. In my private school, there are one or two good teachers, but everyone else is just LAZY! They just put notes on the screen and expect us to learn it like that. Afterwards, I have to spend hours upon hours learning the lessons by myself! The teachers are definatly fun, don't get me wrong, but their "teaching" abilities are jokes compared to the power of the Leo F. Giblyn teachers. Another bad factor about my private school is the principle. Not to be mean, but she's a, do you know what, I won't say it. The principle at Giblyn was nice and caring. The private school principle is just worried with taking your money. Let's count. Almost 10,000 dollars a year, 500 dollars to the church, 100 dollars for the uniform, 32 dollars for dressing down a year, 300 dollars if you don't do bake sales, 600 dollars for the teachers, ETC. THAT is why I will always have Leo F. Giblyn Elementary School and it's staff in my heart... Forever.
