Not surprising one bit. I wrote about my pervy math teacher a while ago when we were talking about prop C. This is not even remotely uncommon. I heard countless stories of the like, and saw it with my own two eyes. Yet another reason to not consider teachers to be automatically perfect. Purge the pervish and useless

Really? Is this your pervy math teacher? I was a player for this coach and was in his classroom and coached alongside him through the years (over 14 years!!) and NEVER saw him be inappropriate. Yes, not all teachers are perfect, but what ever happened to innocent until proven guilty. His life is now ruined whether the allegations are true or not because his life revolves arounds kids (teacher and coach). I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt because I know that he is kind and honest and loves his family. By the way, he is an excellent math teacher and coach and now it'll be gone because of an allegation.

Uhhhh...everyone, listen to Shannon. It's a good question, "Whatever happened to "innocent until proven guilty?"" The tendency of people in our community to hunt and kill witches wears on one after awhile, and I'm sick of it.

Before we try this math teacher, let's at least wait to assimilate all of the facts surrounding this case (especially if you're part of the jury). Until then, consider that anyone of YOU could be accused of a horrible thing. Should that every happen, God forbid, I am sure that you'll appreciate being considered innocent until proven otherwise.

I wonder if he was simply explaining the integral of the base of natural logarithms raised to the x power.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
