  • (5 years ago)

    I've been teaching 5th grade for over 13 yrs. I'm the 5th grade teacher and I really enjoy the teachers that I work with. They are friendly caring and most important they care about the children that attend our school. The majority of the teachers participate in the afterschool activities. We provide a great atmospher for learning.

    My child is now attending The Cahokia School of Choice. And it is the best CHOICE we ever made. (she is a former Fort Bowman student) Her grades have excelled back to honor roll and she is excited to go to school again. The staff and principal are wonderful. You can tell they really care about the students and want to teach and help them be all that they can be. Mr. Cotto the Principal is very focused and has a great vision for this school. Mr Cotto Mrs. Travous and Mrs Zarlingo have been a great force at getting this school up and running. I was so thankful I had this option to transfer my child to.
