Some teachers are great, but some are rude and disrespectful. Some of these teachers treat these kids like sheep. They need to show these kids more kindness. I've seen some of these teachers demand respect without giving it in return. As for the new principal she agrees with the way her teachers treat these kids. Wish they treated these kids with more love and respect. They deserve it.
