1 review for Ramon S. Tafoya Elementary School

  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on August 27, 2007
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Within a week of my son starting school, a close family passed and my son besides missing some school had some emotional difficulties. I contacted his teacher Mrs. Sidener who was incredibly helpful and considerate. With so many students in classes these days it's nice that a teacher would take the time and make the effort for a student she's only had inher class a week.
