I have taught at Poison Spider for 21 years. I am constantly impressed with our students' kindness, work ethic and overall behavior. Whenever we take our kids on field trips, we get complements on their outstanding behavior. The teachers all go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure every child learns and achieves. We will be getting a brand new building next year! We are all very excited.
