Open Quote I'm sure there are great teachers here, but we happened to have one who was rude at our very first meeting, and this subsequently devolved into twisting words and being misleading to parents. Believe the way she instilled discipline was through fear and humiliation. As a parent and teacher, I strongly disagree with this approach, especially in Kindergarten. For example, she would literally throw some kid’s end of the day files on the floor, but hand them nicely to others. Or she would yell at kids for things like using too much glue. Such a lazy way of teaching. Moreover, she would ignore some parents to the point of turning their back on them and gossiping/lying to other parents and teachers. Terrible kind of example to set for young kids and got to the point of feeling bad every day that I had to drop off my kid there, and worrying about their safety. In summary: an emotionally unstable person on a power trip has no business whatsoever being around young children, let alone teaching them without supervision. I felt so strongly about this that our family moved to another school district so my younger children wouldn’t have the misfortune of being around that teacher. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
