Congratulations! It's great to know you're part of our local teachers. You seem like anRead More interesting and motivated individual. We're lucky to have you here locally.

So turns out I heard about this from my kid who's teacher went MIA on Tuesday. Nothing from theRead More school. I do believe being a parent who's child is in the teacher in questions class that I should have been informed of some details. I mean don't I have a right to know who has been around my kid and what they have been accused of?

I am a student of this teacher and I have never had any trouble with him. I have only heard rumorsRead More but I feel as if they are only rumors. He's a great teacher and with these substitutes it is really confusing and messy. I need my teacher back so I don't loose any material that I need.

Look this teacher is an awesome teacher i know for a fact that it was a pranking competition betweenRead More the two, and yes the teacher took it too far by throwing the backpack out the window but if the kid could dish it and couldn't recieve it he shouldn't be complaining there was no damage of personal poperty, no one was harmed the only thing damaged was someone's pride and now a teacher's out of work.

I think this is probably one of the best civics lessons these kids will ever have - every studentRead More ought to have to do this. **** Jeremiah

This is a disgrace that an elected official would go to a middle school and use profanity. It has noRead More bearing that "The kids have heard it before". This is not appropriate language by any public speaker in any format. Once again he speaks before thinking. Read between the lines here the kids were bored and he got angry at seeing the crowd not paying attention and reacted inappropriately. I guarantee you Mike Hestrin does not cuss when he teaches his college students. Just another classless act by a classless man. Let's make a change and elect Mike Hestrin for DA June 3, 2014.

Why a Steeler, or a Parrot, or a eagle, or a..........or a .....or a ? Since when has everyoneRead More become so easily offended by everything? Get over yourselves a bit and try to learn a bit of tolerance. You can't have freedom without tolerance and there is a huge lack of it in the world today. YOU WILL NEVER MAKE EVERYONE HAPPY!!! Stop worrying about it....

@atc: please, there's nothing proud about being a 'rag' -they're one of the lowest forms of humanRead More existence. for that reason i'd change the mascot. question: don't you think a crusader on a horse jabbing a sword through a camel jockey's heart would as you say "...strike fear into your opponent on the sports field"??? if i was a member of the opposing team (especially muslim) i'd be scared sh!tless!!!

You got that right. Political correctness run amuck. People need to get over this crap and developRead More thicker skin. I can't believe 5 of the topics on the home page are devoted to this ordeal. Must have been a slow news week.

Good for him!! He must know that no matter what, someone in this over sensitive culture is bound toRead More be upset no matter the mascot choice!

"PC" has gone way too far in this country. No one has ever been promised that they willRead More never be "offended" by something or someone, except perhaps this new younger generation. Well guess what? You were lied to. EVERYTHING in life is not always "happy happy joy joy". Suck it up, get a life, and try actually doing something positive instead of making mountains out of piddly irrelevant crap. It is not society's job to make you happy, it is yours. Our society has lost it's backbone and it's ability or will to stand up and say "enough!". Just think of the positive things we could accomplish if we put as much energy into REAL problems/issues as we put into "feel good" crap?
