- It used to be different
- How do you get teachers adn students to feel good about being ehre
- We are not handling it very well

- It's like at Vintage
- it's a horrible approach we have right now

- Students are more likely not to do something if they are nagged at
- Both the teachers and students need to get Positive attitude

- Don't feel like a lot of teacher have a lot of resepect because of the way they handle situations
- It takes work on both parts to improve.
