I applaud any teacher or coach who expects respect from students. As a parent, I DEMAND it from my child. Bad attitudes from kids should not be tolerated in the classroom or on a team.

It's not demanding respect. He needs to learn some. He is a jerk. He called the children dogs and told one little boy if he didn't sit up straight he'd stick thumb tacks to the back of his chair. Not to mention during football season he lacked any respect for the cheerleaders.

Sorry, but I feel that you're being untrue and just trying to stir up trouble. End of story. I'm proud of the school band program, and the dedicated students who put forth EFFORT into making the band succeed. Mr. Douty is very dedicated to the program and to the students. He is not a jerk. He demands excellence which I applaud as a parent! I expect my child to put forth the best effort possible as well. Posting something as you did because you are upset shows tactless behavior.

You are probably one of the lazy middle-schoolers who has already quit the band by now.

I myself am in the high school band. It's my favorite part of the day, and I for one think Mr. Douty is the best teacher at South Greene. Being in band teaches Character, Musicianship, and Pride, and we wouldn't be able to embody that without such a dedicated director. He may be a little strict on the younger kids,(I remember it all too well, they just need to suck it up), but it's just to prepare them for what is expected in the high school band. Mr. Douty is a good person, and he puts up with all of us nutjobs in the high school. He is a fantastic teacher, and cares for his students.

If you people are going to complain about teachers, pick some of the lazy bums at the elementary schools. Not an honorable, hardworking man such as Micheal Douty.

If you don't sit up straight, your tone quality falls to shit. Maybe if these kids would LISTEN, they'd learn a thing or two.

And I doubt he called any kids 'dogs'. That's probably something that's spread through the gossip mill and become warped by the redneck public of this town.

I worked with Mr. Douty when my children were in middle school. They chose not to continue with band in high school, but my experience with him was great. He was the ONLY teacher that seemed organized and detail oriented. He actually put things in writing and called to remind me of events. Anyone who can start a band program from the ground up and has the quality of band he does today deserves some respect. Yes, he is demanding, but music requires discipline. And sure, he has an ego...show me a band director that doesn't. If you don't like him and you are a student, quit the band and get your lessons outside of the school setting. If you are a parent and you don't like him, don't participate or pull your kid out. Seems simple enough.

I have great respect for Mr. Douty. He cares about his students and he wants them to do well both musically and in life. There are other teachers at South Greene, who, seemingly, could care less about their students (at least the ones who don't play sports.)

In truth, Mr. Douty is not a people person on first meeting. He is quiet yet direct, reflective yet organized, and quite possible the most interesting teacher I have ever seen. He comes across stuffed shirt. Adults are almost always instantly turned off by his demeanor... BUT he can pull music out of students in a way I have never seen others do. And the students, once given a chance to know him, actually love being in his classes. There are very few teachers at the high school level, besides some coaches, who voluntarily put in time before, and after school, weekends, and holidays. Band is a class but not, it is a sport but not, and yet students dedicate hours to playing and practicing and enjoying time melding under the amazing leadership of Mr. Douty. South Greene area students and parents are missing out on the real person if they only look at the exterior or first impression. Opinionated? yes...but graciously admits when his is wrong... BUT Will he fight for your students' right to have their band program be successful? He most certainly will! Thank you Mr. Douty!!!
