Does anyone have or have had children at Guy Lee Elementary? We are new to the area and so far I'm not impressed with my daughters 2nd grade teacher so I was wondering what anyone can tell me about their experiences. Thanks

I don't have any experience with Springfield schools, but if I were you I'd try volunteering in the classroom and for other school-wide opportunities. By doing that you'll meet other involved and concerned parents and perhaps you all could then arrange regular meetings - like coffee, tea, or lunch at someone's house to discuss school-related issues. Don't give up hope for the whole school - sometimes it's really just one teacher, not the whole school. I say this based on experience. The teacher makes the difference. Even in crummy schools there are often good teachers worth seeking out and sticking around for. And also in my experience I've learned that they often place the kids whose parents are more involved in the classrooms with the better teachers because they know that those types of parents will make a lot of noise otherwise. How does that saying go, "The squeaky wheel gets the oil..."
