Some fabulous new teachers! We actually moved here from a different school to follow one of our favorites. Fingers crossed we get her next year in 3rd grade! I don't like the way that some teachers talk to children though in a very derogatory manner. Ever been in a school where teachers are allowed to blow whistles in children's faces? Where kindergartens are forced to walk with their arms folded across their chests even ON STAIRS!!?? It's abhorrent and I wish something could be done about it. Parent involvement stinks. I don't understand how two schools in the district are allowed to mandate parent involvement and other schools aren't. It puts Whittier at a disadvantage. I wish that some of the teachers and support staff (even the "behavior expert" spends a lot of time screaming at children. What??) would learn some better management techniques but overall the curriculum is excellent expectations are high speech and language services are excellent and my children look forward to going to school every day.
