The bathrooms are dirty, but the kids make the mess, and my class cleans my classroom.
This school is dirty doesn't clean. My child always says the teachers curse, and I heard a teacher cursing this behavior is unacceptable.
My name is Marjorie a transferred special ed. Paraeducator. I was trying to communicate via phone with Mrs. Gonzales or Mrs.. Miller to inform them that I am attending a workshop at Central High school gym. Blessings
