    "I wanted to give this school zero stars and not because I think the school is terrible - but because it employs a teacher that has done irreparable damage to her students. In all my life experiences as a student, a teacher, and a parent of students, I have never met a teacher like this woman who has a negative effect on every student in her class. All my other children had great teachers at TL, but one of my children has had a terrible year because of this teacher. This 6th/7th grade math teacher in one of the school portables whose name I won't mention, is hated by almost every student and parent in her classroom. She is inconsistent, unfair, unkind, and should not be allowed to work with children. Her teaching and classroom skills are nonexistent and she has never been able to motivate any of her students to want to learn and do well in math. I know that there have been numerous complaints about this teacher by other parents. The school continues to employ her when she has done nothing but mental, emotional,and cognitive harm to her students. Why would a great school keep a teacher like that on staff?"

    "As with all institutions, there are the good and the bad. TL is an excellent school on some counts, but they need to improve the inconsistent teacher quality that they currently maintain. Right now there are some exceptional teachers such as a favorite history teacher who brings the subject to life! At the same time, there are some terrible teachers that have no business working with students such as a PE teacher who makes derogatory comments to students are their athletic ability or lack of, and a 7th grade Math teacher who is so lacking that her students will not be adequately prepared for 8th grade Math. The point I am making is that a school is only as strong as its members and right now, TL has some seriously weak teachers that are pulling down the excellent teachers."

    "We are a Tierra Linda family. All of the children in my family including nieces and nephews, have attended this school with my last one currently enrolled. We have always had good experiences and have been happy with TL, especially with our wonderful principal. The reason why I am giving the school a low rating is because I am beyond disappointed that the school would employ a teacher who really has no business working with middle school-aged children, especially in a subject such as Math. My daughter has always been a good student who earns grades that would make any parent proud. She is also the kind of student that conducts herself well in the classroom. EVERY day, she comes home with accounts of this math teacher's actions that just horrify me. I have spoken with many parents about this teacher and the opinion is overwhelmingly unanimous and in agreement. This woman should not be teaching. She is impatient, unfair (treats boys far worse than she treats girls), is unpleasant, unapproachable, has poor classroom management skills (she will punish the entire class because of the antics of a few), and the list goes on."

    "My child just started attending this school. We are very impressed so far. Her teachers are excellent and the parents are very dedicated. My child loves learning... which started last year at Arundel and really has picked up at TL. The principal is very engaged and exhibits strong leadership. The kids are great! My child really has enjoyed meeting the kids from Heather who seem to be achievers too. A very diverse and nice blend of children at TL. Also, we love the music they are learning!!"
