Teacher investigation considered tonight

Tuesday, March 4, 2008

The Clay Community Schools Board of Trustees will hold a special session tonight at 7 p.m., at North Clay Middle School.

The only item on the agenda is the, "consideration of adoption of findings of fact, conclusions of law, and order that cancel the teaching contract of a permanent teacher."

On Jan. 17, the board gave permission to administrators to investigate the alleged actions of North Clay Middle School teacher, Reelsville resident Anita Miller.

Miller was arrested Jan. 13, and charged with public intoxication and public nudity.

The board will review the information learned in the investigation, then decide on the future of Miller's contract with the corporation.

The other teacher involved in the incident, Melinda Ellis, Bloomfield, resigned from the White River Valley School Corporation Jan. 16.

As a parent with children at North Clay, I am concerned about the outcome of this incident. Teachers are supposed to uphold the highest standards of conduct and be role models for the students. How can she present a positive image for students to follow with her actions she displayed the night she was arrested. I am all for giving a person a second chance but in this case I think she should be removed from teaching or put in a position where she can not adversely affect the students. North Clay has enough problems without her adding to them.
