  • I have never seen teachers bend over backwards for students like these teachers at Shamrock Middle. Mrs. Hall used to attend school at Shamrock years ago, now she works in the office. She is the wonder woman that makes things happen at this school. I cannot say enough good things about this school in such a short letter. You will have to go there yourself to see what I am talking about.

    Sincerely,
    David
