    I’ve had not great experiences with past math teachers, but Ms. Anderson is very different. She takes time for each of the students to answer questions and give extra help. She never belittles anyone for not understanding a concept. She has made me enjoy math more than I used to.

    My teacher Mr. Angulo has changed my life by helping me with my work and my problems. He talks to me when I'm sad upset and confused tired. When I want to give up he tells me don't give up Jamiah. So, Mr. Angulo has changed my life. I'm going to miss him when I go off to high school. He is funny and happy as can be. He is like my best friend. He is talented for being the best teacher ever. When I grow up my kids are going to Ida B. Wells because it is a great school. It's a school that will have your child excited, happy and laughing all the time. I love Ida B. Wells. It has helped me over the years with my math, reading science. Mr. Angulo is the best I really want to thank him for teaching me every thing I know from the bottom of my heart I appreciate you so much for everything.

    As my first year I came to America, my English knowledge is limited, is bad. I am quiet and less talking and not participating in the class easy. Mr. Arabian noticed me and started to talk to me, teach me to learn more English, teach me how to participate in class, be more confident to communicate with the classmates. He is the great teacher to teach English, also a great person for me or us to share what we think.

    Ms. Arias is an amazing teacher, who always goes above and beyond. She helps make the classroom a warm and inviting place, and is always ready to offer comfort and help with transitions. She has demonstrated excellence both in the physical classroom as well as the virtual classroom, which has not been an easy task! She made online learning fun and engaging for the whole class. Her small group activities would always make Asher's eyes light up with excitement! Despite being virtual most of the year, she sparked an interest and enthusiasm in Asher to learn more Spanish. Ms. Arias has made the transition back into the classroom an easy one for Asher! Even though the class is a mix of different students and teachers, he was more than ready to go back and spend his days with Ms. Arias. WE LOVE MS ARIAS!

Ms. Baggett hosts “Lunch Bunch” for the kids every Monday and Friday. This has really helped Sadie have time with the teachers and other students that join to socialize virtually. Even Sadie’s big sister joins for Lunch Bunch - Ms. Baggett is so welcoming and inclusive. Sadie loves the songs and projects that Ms. Baggett has during her class and is learning so much. Sadie’s improvement on letter and number recognition is remarkable. Thank you for all you do, Ms. Baggett!

    Ms. Baker is always kind, helpful, and engaging. I have always loved science, but she makes science even more interesting and fun. She created videos when she was on maternity leave, to help her students visually see and understand the lessons. It helped a lot. I know if I could only read about the lessons, they would not have been as interesting. She makes me feel like she believes in me and wants me to do well on my assignments.
