I would never want to be a teacher, they think they are smarter than everyone and like to belittle their students who challenge their intelligence. Half of them here in massena barely got through high school and makes me wonder how they obtained their degree to teach!!
Lets see you prove that one....shows your limited intelligence even to make a comment like that. Quit making crap up just to antagonize people.....

Oh did I hit a nerve? Look at half of the teachers in our district, how can people blame the Superintendent for poor test grades and performance. Does he go in and teach the kids?No I don't think so, it falls back to the people directly associated with the students and those people are "teachers". Once again pointing the finger in any direction but their own!!

Quit hiding behind your cell phone IP. No body is blaming anybody for poor scores. I think both groups are attempting to raise test grades. You need to look around at the demographics and what other similar schools are getting and doing you will find Massena is doing average. The teachers work hard to improve student achievement in all areas and the administration is looking at various ideas also. Does everyone agree on how to do it? No, but they are attempting and making strides in the right direction. It is people like you that are muckraking that cause many of the issues for the administration and the teachers. Let it go and quick fueling the fire for the other side all the time.

Most Interesting . We have a bunch of pissed off people whining about the teachers having a picnic, which turns into a bash-o-thon ! Well bashers ponder this thought ,Your all upset because your little brat didn't come home from school with basic skills like RESPECT , or MANORS ! Guess what ! That's your job not the teachers. Oh and as far as your kid not turning out to be a nuclear physicist- Hey _ You plant CORN you get CORN!!!!

Thanks, Joe! It has to be said by those other than teachers or it gets shot down as whining...it's easy to see where student attitudes are formed and nurtured!!

Thank you for the reply . It's nice to see that some people still have some common sense. To bad that so many parents want to blame every one but themselves or there own child when the child doesn't succeed. I know that all teachers are not perfect ,however , I have not yet met the perfect parent. They don't exists. You do the best you can with what you have to work with ,and if parents send their kids of with a nasty attitude , it doesn't leave much room for the teachers to produce those miracles that the parents are expecting!
