  1. Excellent Job!!

    It is so refreshing to hear something positive about our school systems. Since the inception of No Child Left Behind, all we hear is negativity and how poorly our schools are doing. Teachers are still teaching and students are still learning! What a miracle. Too bad our government and law makers don't see the difference between now and 30 years ago. It is amazing how we as a country allow non-English speaking residents continue to not learn the language this country was founded on. Children can learn anything--why can't the adults be held accountable? Is it too much to ask--If I moved to France--I sure would not expect the entire country to change for me. Amazing to me how we allow immigrants in this country shape the values and create an expectation of "we owe them!" Isn't that bull!

    Paloma--- Keep up the great work! Your students deserve all the positive recognition they can get in these troubled times....
