  1. How does an administrative applicant fly under the board's radar with this record? Plus, wasn't she still on probation? What about the required counseling? I have a teaching certificate in another state and can't imagine even obtaining a position as a teacher or para with a record. Either she wasn't forthcoming in her application, in which case she should be fired, OR the BOE failed to do an adequate background check. This is serious. This is a person without impulse control who behaves violently. She should not be in a public school.

    Hey, the Senate just confirmed a known torturer and destroyer of documents to head the CIA; the White House has had to fire any number of staff with criminal and ethical histories. It looks like both cultural standards that have been adopted at the top are now filtering down to the local level. What's to complain about if it's something the president does?

    2. News flash Chuck, waterboarding isn't torture. It was fully vetted by the justice department and found legal. She did a great job. But, just so you know, I don't really care what we have to do to keep the bad guys from hurting the good guys. Jack Bauer to the rescue.

    2. He's told me his son plans to put him in a nursing home with his ex-wife. Maybe he's got a death wish.

  7. I agree 3:23 pm post during his tenure our schools rating has not improved. Potential folks who wish to relocate do look at school rating in the community they are looking to for relocation

  8. Okay she popped her top, let's move on and stop gossiping and slandering others. Slander the animals who bring drugs and chaos in our town, not someone who is trying to pursue an honest "career".

    1. The character of the people we entrust our kids too should be excellent not clealy questionable and obviously having anger issues.

  9. 6:42-she popped her top. All humans do it except most of us don’t act upon it and keep under control. She did not. So lets put her in the school system? Minimum wage jobs require drug tests and background checks for applicants. I guess the superintendent, thought kicking a cop was no bid deal? I suggest the school board start putting their heads together, because they won’t be re-elected if they continue to support him. The community has had enough and our students, parents, teachers and staff deserve better leadership.

    2. 1:17, what in the hell could possibly justify slashing your mother's car tires and then assaulting a police officer? I have a pretty good imagination and I come up with NOTHING!

      Delete
    3. 1:17-when it comes to having a position working with children, we should judge. Period. I guess it is like saying, “ oh she only molested a kid”, no big deal. Obviously she has some issues, many of us do. If someone has terrible people skills, you don’t have them working in a job that requires customer service. Hopefully 1:17, you have the slightest idea of what I am talking about.

      Delete
    4. I do, 4:15. Judge with facts, not on heresay or a newspaper article. She has better people skills than 95 percent of the population. She has never molested a child or had any issues brought against her in any school system regarding not getting along with parents, students, teachers, management. The scores of her children soared to the highest in Vermont when she taught them. No child felt anything but empowered and validated in her presence.

      Delete
    5. 7:51, explain this she pleaded guilty to charges brought against her. The facts are she slashed her mothers tires and assaulted a police officer. Correct? In the real world that would disqualify you from many entry level jobs. So lets turn the other cheek. She is good enough for our kids. No big deal. We need to raise our kids that actions have consequences. Instead we are saying just the opposite here. Trust me students in Springfield know what is going on, when they see the turn over of principals and other staff and word gets around quick.

    On the other hand, a very popular teacher in the Chester system was fired, and this was AFTER he also rescued a driver trapped in a burning car. School systems can be weird in the extreme.

  11. The entire school system needs to be revamped. Start at the top and work down. Someone didn't do their job and needs to be held accountable for their lack of ability. Zach McLaughlin hasn't done anything good for the school system except raise the budget to an astronomical height. Most of the teachers are good, always a few bad apples, but generally good.
    The entire school board needs to be replaced with new ideas seeing as though nothing has worked.

  12. Vermont spends more money per student on administration than EVERY OTHER STATE. Eliminate local school boards entirely. Have one board for the entire state, with each town having a Superintendent of Schools. The county I grew up in has ONE MILLION people in it, and only one school board. As sparsely populated as Vermont is, this is the only thing that makes any sense. Modern telecommunications technology makes distance irrelevant. "Local control" may be popular, but it is expensive, and has been an absolute failure.

  13. OMG...a person with anger issues..CLEARLY!. Lets start with the people who hired her! Let's don't pay our taxes until we get the quality we pay for!

  14. Due to mental health issues...ANOTHER time and place for this young Woman.Not now! Not until treatment, that she herself has requested, shows undeniable evidence of recovery, couple with a comlete anger managment program and full psych evaluation!

    People have to make judgements continually; perfect information is rarely available. In this case they have public information from a local newspaper and no reason to suspect it's false. The offenses which Ms. Carlock reportedly admitted to took place this past October, and she was required to go to mental health counseling. Yet reportedly last month she requested another 30 days to complete application requirements for a mental health program: were 6 months insufficient? It's understandable that parents and taxpayers have concerns that should be addressed, and it's all certainly enough to request an explanation from the parties who hired her for the assistant principle job.

    This isn't to cast doubt on the anecdotal report of Ms. Carlock's excellent work in the past, but that appears more subjective and less documented - and - it's in the past.

    As a taxpayer, if the hiring parties after due diligence felt that Ms. Carlock deserves a chance, I would go along with it. If I were a parent I might feel otherwise.

  17. Ms. Carlock is a passionate and talented educator who would be an asset to any school. As parents and community members, of course we need to be very careful of our children! But that does not mean we judge and condemn based on this little article. We all know that life is not black and white, I am sure there is much more detail and nuance to this situation that could inform and sway our opinions. Yes, she made a mistake- but how many relevant details were left of out this article? I have tried to learn more about the situation. It is clear that she has taken responsibility for her actions from the moment they happened and done everything in her ability to make amends, get counseling, recover, and grow. There is NO evidence that this behavior is anything but a single, out of character, tragedy. It is easy for "Anonymous" to throw out horrible, completely inflammatory and inaccurate comparisons to a child molester- and it is wrong. How many of us have made a mistake that, if we were to be judged by that one moment only, would ruin our lives? She has over a decade of experience and success, and a clean record. One thing I am sure of, we have just lost a great teacher.

  18. When a Judge orders mental health counseling, that is more than a red flag for someone working with children. Some of us know that all records pertaining to her case are available to the public, and have read them. They are in her handwriting, with her signature, and stamped by the court. She kicked a female officer in the chest, how can someone who couldn’t control her behavior as an adult handle the current behavior problems at our elemtary schools? Shouldn’t we be hiring people that will lead by positive example rather than negative experience?

    She omitted informing her current district of her arrest, she omitted informing the hiring committee of SSD of her arrest, there could be more than would jeapordize the safety of our children.

    If this is your definition of a great teacher, I definitely do not want to see your definition of a bad one.

    How many people have had their lives ruined by being judged in a single moment whether it be poor judgement or not? MANY.

    Every action has a consequence, and this happens to be hers.
