Something truly wicked has happened in the entire Alhambra School District over the past five to seven years. The administrators' view from the top down began to shift. We were a nationally renown district and the overwhelming majority of our parents and children were happy. As a former Coach and teacher at a few schools in the district, it truly saddens me to see the depths to which the Alhambra School District has plummeted. I don't know why I'm not disgruntled, because I was one of the many teachers who was unjustly fired. In my case, it was to balance the budget. They used the new teacher evaluation tool to label me "Ineffective". Of course, in my current district I am labeled "HiGHLY EFFECTIVE" with the same REIL evaluation instrument. I put so much of my blood sweat and tears into this district and I still love it. But I think the district needs to open up to all that they've destroyed from the smallest to the greatest one and genuinely apologize and repair relationships where possible. I've met some of the most talented teachers and students Ive ever known in Alhambra. So to see test scores this low throughout the district makes it look more like a CURSE. I implore You, make amends, Alhambra, make amends. 602-670-1966.
