  • Substituted in the 8th grade as the first assignment at this school. Door was open at the beginning of the period and kids wouldn't settle down for instruction, roll call, anything. Told them I'd wait for quiet to discuss the day's work. An administrator walked in and it didn't matter to them. they kept up their behavior; acted like a bunch of felons. What a horrible group of students. Adminstration was great about all this nonsense, but it's the kids who need to be great as well.Respect? It begins with and is sustained by the parents. I wouldn't any of my family or friends' kids to have to attend this school.
