well, my son just started at the middle school in november, and this teacher was the greatest. he was so nice to my son. he built up his confidence in band, and made him feel great. he really liked him. in band class, the assistant teacher took over, and the principal told all the kids that mr searls resigned, and that he was under investigation for texting with male students. why the principal announced it in that way to the class, and why no one has ever questioned any of these boys is beyond me. he said no one's mentioned it to him since that day.

I am not sure the principal said it exactly in that way, but he did inform the students that Mr. Seals had resigned, an investigation is on going, and that he had violated the policy of teachers texting students. It is my understanding there is an ongoing investigation, and if criminal activity took place charges will be brought. At this time, officially, he did not follow the policy against teachers texting students. He chose to resign rather than either have a reprimand or be fired. I am very glad for you and your son that he had a positive experience with this teacher, and I am hopeful that nothing will be found in the investigation where there was unacceptable and illegal advances or activity against any students took place. I don't like for people to be unfairly accused of misconduct with a child, but I hate when there is actual misconduct with a child. It is especially heinous when it is a person in the school systems. We shall just have to wait for the results of the investigation. I again hope no child has been harmed by this.

Good post. I agree completely. I tried to post a little bit ago about this and my post never showed up. Maybe someone here knows more about this than me idk, but all that I read was something inappropriate was found on an electronic device of his. That could be anything. People always assume the worst. If it was something of a perverted nature toward any student then he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent. If it was something more innocent but still inappropriate, then fire him and maybe take his teaching credentials and send him on his way. Either way, the authorities are investigating. Let things happen the way they should instead of burning him at the stake before the details are known.

Wow! For a fairly innocent but still inappropriate text, he should be fired and have his teaching credentials taken away? lol

Is this teacher gay? Was this a picture text? Does it involve any under 18?
