Bad Adminstration!!!! They get rid of great teachers with no valid reason given. If they aren't inthe adminstration's click they are gone. It is sad that great teachers are let go and subpar teachers are kept becuase the adminstration lays off teachers based on their buddy system. I've seen it happen many times over the years and talk to a majority of the parents and they know it too!
