This man bullied staff and students all year long. His actions were unbelievable!!! Complaints fell on deaf ears until the school board and media got involved. Thank you Mt. Vernon School Board for taking action. I believe the school board would of got rid of him had he not resigned. I think he knew that was the case and resigned first. This man does not belong in any school!!!
Worked with him too

This doesn't surprise me that Mr. E's bad behavior has finally caught up with him. I worked with him at a previous school and he was a bully to both teachers and students. I recall many meetings were he would rant and yell at the teachers or even go to their classroom and yell at them. It's depressing that he keeps getting hired. I honestly hope this will be the last school district he works in and I hope he doesn't work with children anymore. The bullying needs to stop and that's exactly what he is.

So glad to hear this maniac is no longer being paid to harass children and employees. Now MV, finish cleaning up this mess.
I agree. We had this man as our elementary principal and on so many levels was he inappropriate. He tore apart families and really hurt innocent lives. I'm glad that God has finally caught up with him. There should be accountability for actions. Today administration just pushes these people on to other schools and it just hurts other lives. When will we as a society have the guts to make professionals accountable? I'm a veteran teacher and would never have tolerated this in my classroom. Unfortunately, teachers are at the botton of the totem pole these days. Our voice is a quiet one. Parents, keep shouting until someone hears you!!

I am now at the school he teaches it's my last year too. I can't wait to get out. He made uniforms for us, smiles when we are hurt or in trouble, and is harsh to all kids that have already paid full tuition. Suspicious..... Us kids aren't idots, we Google Mr. Terry Eisenbarth and this is what we find. I don't know what to do as young kids he picks on us because we don't have a fork or we wear a sweatshirt over a particular shirt! Come on I need some advice what do I do?

"Student with this guy" I was the kid who got in trouble for wearing a sweatshirt over our shirt. And the gunner part about that is other people was doing that too and I got in trouble for it! And one day I left school early and Mr. Terry Eisenbarth waved at us good bye and the next day I got in trouble for leaving with out telling anybody but I did tell people that I was leaving.
