Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #203: This week, I’m sharing research on a criminal case involving a school district human resources director.

Whether a person works for a school district or elsewhere—if they enjoy seeing children abused sexually, eventually, they’ll get caught and be arrested.

Child pornography is illegal. When it’s a school district employee who’s caught, that makes the crime even more despicable.

The 30-something man had worked for the school district for sixteen years. He began as a school teacher, then an assistant principal, and a middle school principal, but held the position of Human Resources Director at the time of his arrest.

Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #198: This week, because a new school year will soon begin (if yours hasn’t already), I’m sharing information on school safety.

With the new school year upon us, there has been a lot of talk on the news about bulletproof backpacks or ballistic backpacks. They also have inserts to make the pack even more impenetrable.

Some schools and businesses are installing emergency response shields near the fire extinguishers and AEDs (Defibrillators). The shields are smaller but similar to what you see law enforcement holding in front as they approach a scene when gunfire is occurring. There are also inserts that can be added to backpacks.

Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #197: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving a middle school special education teacher.

As the school year ended that year, the wife (second marriage), mother, and head of the middle school special education department found herself embroiled in her husband’s arrest case.

Love Struck

He was a Brazilian native, bodybuilder, and ten years younger than his wife. Typically the difference between a husband’s and wife’s ages wouldn’t be a factor in a criminal case, but it became part of the teacher’s defense.

Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #196: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving an Assistant Director of Academics at a junior-senior school.

Have you ever donated money to a school fundraiser? Maybe you’ve volunteered to help raise funds for a particular school project or activity. If so, this greedy person’s dirty deed will make you angry.

Schools don’t have a lot of fluff in the budget. In this case, there was a generous budget that was partly funded through donations.

Robin Lyons' BlogBLOG POST #195: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific case involving a 13-year-old boy who’d been relentlessly bullied.

Summer is the perfect time to have conversations with your children or grandchildren about bullying. Kids need to understand what to do and what not to do if they are a victim of bullying.

Bullies

It doesn’t take much to hurt a child’s feelings and breakdown their self-esteem. Bullies know this all too well. As a grandmother, when I learn of my grandchildren being bullied, it’s hard not to charge into the school and demand action. Unfortunately, it’s a delicate situation—it shouldn’t be delicate—but politics come into play.
