  • Taft provides excellent support for our children. Their newest principal assures that students achieve their quarterly/yearly goals with the help of the staff & parents. I can honestly say, with the exception of a couple teachers, that Taft Elementary is a great school with a very dedicated staff.
    Some teachers have the gift of language down. They know how to use their words in a way that everyone around them feels good about themselves and motivated to do their work. However, there are some teachers out there who let their adult sense of humor and frankness go too far.
    I say to these teachers “Think about your words carefully, because once you’ve spoken, there’s no taking it back”. If a teacher isn't always encouraging and motivating his/her students, how should we expect our students to thrive in their learning environment?

    Bottom line - if a teacher needs to be told what not to say, they shouldn't be in the classroom at all.
