    I absolutely love going to work everyday! Sometimes some my colleagues might annoy me but I brush it off. My job entails educationg the youth. I'm not here to make friends and if I do great if not that's ok too. I'm here for the children.That's what lets me LOVE my job!.

    There are few good teacher in this school however I consider they missed a lot of classes. I really think that our children deserve much better. There is anybody how take care of our children while waiting for their teacher (gym cafeteria) who oversee for my child. Children figthing over each other going out after their parents left them inside the building.
