Trouble

New Lenox, IL

#1 Jun 25, 2014
I was new to this district this year and only heard such wonderful reviews on the schools. I am pretty dissapointed. Has anyone else had trouble with Grade School 1-3 teachers? I know there are some great ones who don't apply to this post, but seems like they think they are above EVERYONE!!

It depends what school you are at. There are some good teachers in this district and there are others you wonder how they hold onto their jobs. The principals will back them up no matter what they say or do. There are two nasty awful p.e. teachers in this district. One is at the 1-3 level and actually seems to enjoy bullying 1-3 graders and the other is at the 4-6 level. She's old and haggard and has always been a nasty you know what.

Another perfect example as to why Teacher Unions are bad. That's all I have to say.

Pretty simple explanation for problems. But that seems to be your modus operandi.

She's a real fun one. When I pointed out to her she scares the kids she said she knows. What a sick witch that she enjoys intimidating little kids.

Many are great teachers. A few are old goats that need to retire because they don't wanna teach anymore and just reap the benefits. Then a couple of the spencer trailer gals are dumb enough to post themselves on FB getting boozed up together out at the bar. Not saying you can't drink but your a teacher, and your not 18. Be more professional.

There was a Tyler teacher on facebook talking about how she "needed to get some." There is also a Bentley old hag who punishes the kids by making them write their name over and over in cursive. She's so old and dumb that she doesn't realize they don't teach cursive anymore. She also yells at kids who cough. She's pushing 30 years in this profession and is stuck in the 80's.

Why post things on a FB page when you know parents, fellow teachers probably along with the principal and people throughout the school district are reading them!! How sick!! These things need to be addressed at meetings. Our school district has gone down hill so much anymore!!! Just look at the school board, what a disgrace!! Divorce & Infidelity, funny no-one is talking about that! Trying to keep it quiet it guess! Too bad all that info is "Public Information"!!

The entire country is demoralized and going down hill. It's not just schools. This is Obama's America. Enjoy!

I have a real question ...

We're looking to build and wondering if we should stay in NL. Our kids are Pre-K and younger, so we haven't experienced any teachers yet through the district. Would any of you recommend another town with better school district? Lockport? Homer Glen? Lemont? Frankfort? Anyone?

Would you really take advice from people posting on this forum? Have you read the posts? Really?

The lower the grades the worse the schools are. They want a ridiculous amount of control. The older the kids get the better the schools get. I don't know enough about surrounding areas and their schools to offer an opinion.I do know I'm happy as can be we are done with the k-3 schools here. They are run by socialists who stick up for bullies.

Check your property tax bill and compare it to one in say, Valparaiso or Chesterton, Indiana. Wake up! The Illinois debt bomb is coming due. So long, suckers. You can live in Indiana for about one third the cost of Illinois. Look into it. This place sucks and is getting worse. N.L. just built a 10 million dollar jail? For who? New Lenox residents? I don't think so.

I have a residence in Indiana. 2000 square feet. Property taxes? 700 dollars a year. I had a house in Illinois, 3200 square feet. Taxes? 5% income taxes plus 14,000 dollars per year in property taxes. What are you all waiting for?

We are relatively pleased with our NLSD122 experience. A few so-so teachers, some really great ones and most doing pretty good. Differing opinions from different families. Different responses due to different experiences.

Yeah taxes are low but then you have to live in Valparaiso or Chesterton in Indiana. I know both areas well and they don't compare. Tell me about their school rankings, the medical care and facilities available, fire and police etc. Go to the EPA web site and see how many super fund clean up sites are in the area.
