Robin Lyons' blog post #125As you read this, it’s likely your children, grandchild, nieces, or nephews may be back in school. It’s hard to keep up with the varying school start/stop dates across the US.

My grandchildren are back in school. And I’m back on the lookout for anyone suspicious who’s lurking near, working at, or attending schools, hopefully, you are too.

BLOG POST #125: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving a high school teacher.

Monday Morning Dread

It was Monday morning when a local 911 call center received a call from someone who said there would be a shooting and explosion at three area schools. Law enforcement was dispatched to the schools. All three were evacuated and searched finding nothing suspicious.

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #124If you’re reading this, you either care about children or me, or perhaps both. Whatever your reason, thank you for reading!

I know everyone’s short on time. To keep my posts as short as possible, I summarize cases. My posts might be a paragraph longer because I’ve decided to add a brief ‘Take-Away’ when relevant; my opinion on what might be a characteristic or behavior to watch for at school or home.

Are there more serious issues going on at school than what I’ve shared in this post? Absolutely. However, you just might see in an upcoming novel, a sub-plot inspired by this case.

BLOG POST #124: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving a fourth-grade teacher.

She was married to an undercover police detective. After nine-years with the school district, one bad decision in her personal life ended her career and her marriage. Her colleagues were quoted to have said she was a devoted mother and a conscientious teacher.

Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned

When the former teacher found out her husband was having an affair she wanted revenge.

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #113Hello. Thank you for continuing to read my research. I believe it’s important for people to understand that danger lurks at most schools.

You might be surprised by this post as I’m spotlighting the hero rather than the villain.

BLOG POST #113: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving a high school bully, a visually impaired classmate, and a hero.

The Law Is The Law, Right?

Or is the law subjective? Where I live, there’s a case in the mainstream news about a person who threw a cream pie into the face of a mayor. Was it assault? The jury couldn’t reach a verdict. What if it had been acid thrown in the face instead of pie?

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #109

When a school employee or other public service employee is arrested for illegal activities most people are disappointed and shocked. I know I continue to be saddened by the cases I research. If only there were a way to vet applicants so as to hire the very best.

Thank you for taking time from your busy life to read and learn about school news that often doesn’t make ‘the news.’

BLOG POST #112: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving a high school special education teacher.

I’ve never known a heroin addict. After researching this case, I wondered…Was his drug use not noticeable?

And Then There Was One

A student found a syringe on the restroom floor. He gave the syringe to a teacher’s aide. The school notified local authorities and a criminal investigation ensued.

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #108Greetings and thank you for reading my blog post. You care about children, or you wouldn’t continue to read my research. I believe understanding more about the dangers lurking online and offline helps us make the world a safer place for kids.

There are so many websites on the internet where teenagers can connect with other teens. Unfortunately, pedophiles and sexual predators are also on those sites. If you haven’t talked openly with your children about cyber predators, perhaps it’s time you did.

BLOG POST #111: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving a high school teacher and a teenage girl (not one of his students).

How Much Freedom Should Teenagers Have?

If you have children, I’m sure you’ve had moments when you wanted to snoop on your child’s electronic device to see what websites they visit. Keeping an eye on who they communicate with on social media is a challenge. You might question if they deserve some freedom, or if they know better than to get involved in anything inappropriate. I say, kick those thoughts to the curb and snoop.
