Volunteering in 5th-Grade

***READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED***

Posts about real school tragedy, crime and/or events can be upsetting.

Sadly, there was a school shooting this week at a middle school in Indiana. The motive is unknown. Someone learned of the threat and called in to report it. The authorities acted fast, the school went into lock-down, and the only casualty was the shooter who took his own life. My heart hurts for all involved including the family of the deceased. Brave accolades go to the person who saw something and said something.

Robin Lyons BlogGoogle ‘Sexting’ and there are plenty of headlines.

Anytime is the perfect time to share sensitive but important information regarding texting or more specifically, sexting with your teenager.

The consequences for sexting can derail a teenagers future plans for college.

When a parent is asked if their teenager is sexting, most if not all would respond, “Not my son/daughter.” Yet sexting is on the rise faster than the stock market in an up-period.

Abusive Teacher’s Last Pass

***READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED***

Posts about real school tragedy, crime and/or events can be upsetting.

Robin Lyons Blog PostHave you heard the term ‘Pass the Trash?’ I know of the practice, I didn’t know there was a name for it. In a nutshell, you have an employee whose work performance is substandard for whatever reason, they’re given the choice to resign or be fired. If they resign, their substandard job performance is withheld when the next employer checks references – due to ‘confidentiality’ requirements.

I remember we were told when a potential employer called for references we could respond with a “no” to the question, “Would you hire X again?” but could say nothing else as to why not.

Deplorable Teacher Behavior

I have friends who are teachers. They’ve spent many years obtaining their teaching certificates. Also, they’ve spent many hours building their careers. Often, they work off the clock to grade and plan.

It’s incomprehensible to me that someone would go to great lengths for a career and then throw it away because of a sexual attraction to underage children. But then, I don’t understand how an adult can be sexually attracted to a child and frankly it makes me angry.

He began as a substitute teacher in 2007. Less than ten years later he was convicted of receiving child pornography from middle school students he taught.
