    I have had 3 kids in 3rd 5th and now 2nd grade in the below teacher s class. In this short space I can t express how grateful I am that my children are and were in her class. She is a no-nonsense teacher and does not put up with disrespect from the students. My second grader struggled with first grade but since he has been in this teacher s class his work and attitude have improved. It is not her job to love my child that is MY JOB! I read and sign everything she sends home. This is why I know how my child is doing in class. If I need more information I call the teacher personally then if needed I request a face to face conference. I firmly believe that teachers can t educate our children by themselves. They need the parents to take an active role in their children s education. From what I have read here some of the parents believe that the teacher should be both teacher and loving parent. I am so pleased that my children were taught by this wonderful teacher.

    I also have a child in Mrs. Macuiba's class and we have had nothing but problems all year. my child has never had problems in school until this year. she is constantly coming home with red marks and i know she is not a bad child.I have done everything to fix the problem. also my daughter is at a 4th grade reading level and she gave her an " N" last grading period. my next step has been to contact the assistant principal. she thinks we should have a conference but what is that going to do when it's a personality issue with Mrs. Macuiba. I think since she has 2 children of her own she doesn't have the patience to deal with 2nd graders who are still learning and need to be taught how to act in school. she needs to teach middle school. The older kids can handle getting yelled at even though i don't think that's right either.

    Plumb is a fantastic School and weve had a great experience up until second grade we were placed with Mrs. Macuiba and are highly disppointed in her behavior. She lacks professionalism talks down to students and talks at parents. She has no sensetivity to these young students and treats these 7 year olds as if they are teenagers. When they dont understand something she refuses to expalin to them again and penalizes them for not paying attention. I and other parents have made several complaints to the school and nothing gets done. Instead my child continues to get penalized for the complaints and every day feels defeated and does not want to go to school. Every year prior my child was a model student and LOVED School now my child feels defeated. Mrs. Macuiba should not be teaching second grade she does not have to sensativity and the nurturing capabilities that these children need at this age. She is better suited to teach at a older age level. I am not writing this to slander her I am writing this because something needs to be done.

    Plumb Elementary is an outstanding school in all areas! My daughter has attended Plumb for the past 5 years and has been very successful! The teachers are very enthusiastic and ready to educate children to the fullest extent. I would highly recommend this school to anyone new to the area.

    This school used to be a great school. Their used to be a wonderful science shack were children were active hands on learners. This has been replaced with a science video for the lesson. The art teacher at this school squashes children's creativity. One quote from her to a student in first grade was "I have a three year old at home that can draw better than you" . Where is the school that builds children's self confidence? Not here instead the reality here is favoritism and unequal opportunities for learners. If you want your child to love learning DO NOT send them here.

    I am extremely disappointed in where this school is heading. I have been with Plumb for a long time. Ever since the new administration was assigned to this school the school has started going down hill fast! The new administration has no respect for their parents or teachers. I have had many of my friends leave the school for this reason or be placed on a waiting list for other schools ( Curtis or Pinellas Prep).

    Plumb has been the called the 'jewel of Pinellas County''s a wonderful school...with warm and caring teachers and parents. I've had two kids go through and both are honor students and one is gifted. It's the closest thing you'll get to a private school. Wonderful!

    My family has moved a lot and my son has been to 5 different elementary schools. 3 up north and 2 in Pinellas county. We have finally settled down and he has been at Plumb for 4th and 5th grade and it is the best school he has been to. His grades are better than ever. He has only been bullied once and it was taken care of immediately. His last Pinellas county school was full of bullying. He cried that he did not want to go to school in 3rd grade. Now at Plumb he loves school. The teachers are very easy to reach and from what my son says very nice. He's made a lot of friends which is hard for him because he is shy. They have phys ed more often than some of his other schools and a few really good field trips this year.

    My daughter amanda is in Ms. Ledbetter's 3rd grade class. I can not say enough about this fantastic school her teachers the YMCA PTA and the family of teachers and parents I have grown to love. I recruit nurses and have developed a jewelry line. If not for the fantastic start we had at Plumb we would have not had such great success.

    Plumb is a well rounded school. Parent involvement is amazing. The PTA is there to help the students and teachers succeed. The principal is there for success of the students. A positive enviornment full of learning and positive reinforcement. A public school with amazing school pride. The students succeed at their academics. The special education programs allow the students to achieve their goals with the necessary help. The gifted program allows the students to positively challenged. I cannot complain about anything. I am very happy with the school. Second grade parent.

    Plumb elementary is considered by many to be one of very best schools in Pinellas County. Plumb has a great family atmosphere and high parental involvement. My own experience has been completely positive. The children at Plumb have become much more than just 'test takers' they actually develop a love of learning. All public elementary schools should be this great.

    I was happy with this school last year because my child was lucky enough to have a good teacher. But this year was a big disappointment! My child was harassed by a bully in his class. He was so miserable and his grades slipped. Finally I reported it to the pricipal she did take action promptly and took care of the bully. But since that incidence my child was punished by his teacher with bad behavior and conduct grades! My child has never received any behavior complaints before until this teacher.

    Larger school in a nice stable neighborhood. High parental and community involvement. We had an excellent Kindergarden experience. The teachers we are familiar with have advanced degrees national certification and a dynamic teaching style. This is a very upbeat environment for learning.

    My impression is that this is a great primary school. Unfortunately this school district was done away with geographical districting of students. Thus one cannot simply more into the 'Plumb District' and attend the school. This is a significant policy change. This school is in a very safe neighborhood has good facilities and a strong base of local support.
