  • Mr. Gallegos was my son's Kindergarden teacher and is a great teacher my son learned so much from him. He is strict communicatio is very important. Mrs. Lucas tought my other son briefly and she was also a wonderful & very helpful teacher my son was on great track 'til administration switched my son to a different class. This teacher had never tought elementary school and my son suffered for it. Noone listened to me when I asked/begged to switch my son. My only option was to be in his class volunteering everyday! Administration principal & vice principal NO help.
