LES teachers are awesome yet demanding, students say

A group of eight students, representing grades 3-5, told Franklin County Schools Superintendent Dr. Rhonda Schuhler the teachers at Louisburg Elementary School are super nice, yet strict when it comes to academics.

Dr. Schuhler met with the students on Tuesday, March 10th as part of her “table-talk” tour of all FCS schools. During the events, Schuhler meets with a panel of students who voice their opinions about life at their schools.

During the LES table talk, Schuhler described her 27 years of experience in public education, as a teacher, principal, human resources director and superintendent. She also explained the role of the superintendent, as well as the structure of the school district, which encompasses 16 schools and covers 500 square miles.

Schuhler listened as the students talked about their favorite subjects, teachers and activities. She also provided them with sound counsel on some of the best options for them to achieve success. The students said they enjoy subjects like art, reading, math, science and writing. They cited some favorite activities like gymnastics, football, playing violin and video games.

While the students said they love the teachers and administrators at Louisburg Elementary School, they did say they would like to have a longer recess period and more books in the library. They agreed that they like using Chromebooks, citing the fact that there are several cool apps that make it easier to learn.

Overall, the children described a very positive experience at their school. Some of the kids said they had attended other schools and were even homeschooled, but they said they prefer their school life at LES.
