First year??? No this counselor has been in the system about 15 years pretending to work at Midway and Asbury. You would think with an alleged masters degree in counseling something would have stuck with her? She must have been sick during the chapter on testing! I'm sure the principal had enough drama dealing with the counselor's run ins with other school employees, to also do her job for her! You really do need to get your facts straight before posting! Again your friend KK knew about this and did nothing! Now how is it she has our kid's best interest? No guts no glory!

That was her first year as a school counselor, therefore that was her first year as the building testing coordinator. School counselors work as testing coordinators in Washington county. Every principal in the county has to deal with employee drama. I'm not sure about her qualifications, or what is required to actually work as a school counselor. It sounds like she had an altercation and a student heard an inappropriate word. Teachers are not perfect, just like everybody else in society. The county handled the situation. Obviously, it sounds like some people are not pleased with her service. The principal is responsible with evaluating Woodard. Kyte doesn't have the authority to just fire people whenever she wants. If that was the case there would be many teachers replaced. There is due process that is handled by her superiors. I believe facts are important as well. The problem with most of the people on johnson city topix is that they don't have control of their emotions and as a result they post very childish comments which makes it hard to take them serious. Controlled emotions + facts = progress.

I'll repeat this again just for you. KK knew about our counselor and did nothing! That just shows she cares more about her big salary than our kids! Guess who's back at our school next year......... the lazy do nothing counselor! She has fired other teachers, just not the director's special friend! No guts no glory! Thanks KK!

It is apparent that you are one of the CO cover up crew. The whole county knows the truth. You are just wasting your time singing KK praises. The money is KKs top priority not the kids.

So you are insulting parents, just like the CO staff. The counselor used the f word in front of students.A person off the street knows better.

Knew what? Dr kyte could retire and live off her husbands fat pockets. Sounds like a mess at jes. It's hard to fire a tenured teacher.

Im sure most teachers would agree that most behavior and academic issues at school are a result of a lack of support from parents. Unfortunately, some parents look at school as know more than a daycare. But, we don't live in an ideal world. We need more teachers to create smaller class sizes, so teachers have more time to work with the kids that need the extra support. It's unfortunate that the student had to experience hearing their school counselor use the f world. Im not sure firing her is the answer, although im not sure how effective she can be considering her role as a school counselor.

Now you're talking and yes she needs to finally retire and enjoy her money! She would make everyone working in the school system VERY HAPPY if she left! What's stopping her? She could come to visit you in FLA. Let's make it happen and maybe she could convince the other CO senior citizens who should have retired years ago, to go with her!

What about crowded classrooms? Increased teacher pay? The previous counselor at jes left for Kingsport schools and about 8000 more a year. Even if we get rid of the county administrators the real issues effecting education will remain. I hope any unethical business gets addressed, but we have to stay focused on how to improve education. We are the 13th wealthiest county in the state, and rank as one of the lowest in the state on spending per student. I'm sure the county could make some cuts in non academic spending, but the county as a whole needs to make education spending a priority. I know it is complicated and difficult, but we need to be discussing realistic constructive ways to make education better. Or, we can do the easy thing and just here and bad mouth everybody and see how far that gets us. It takes guts to control your emotions and remain focused on real solutions. Cute slogans belong on campaign signs.

If KK retired that would be a step in the right direction in improving WCDE! She doesn't care for our kids and can't relate to parents who need help! This school system is in dire need of a personnel update! So if she is that wealthy why is she still working? I'm thinking she likes the power and control over making people miserable! That illogic yes man, her only friend, needs to talk some sense into her for the good of everyone in WCDE. Please take the other CO laughable gang with you. They need to enjoy their old age and money before going to an assisted living facility!

In her defense she just does what the director wants her to do to to keep him out of trouble. The CO knows their job and that is their job. It does not matter if it is unethical or unlawful. She and others know where their bread is buttered. The school board needs to wise up to reality. What the board does not know hurts the school community. It is the boards job to police the director.

I called her a few years ago concerning a problem. I didn't know anything about her, I was just told to call her. When I called she acted like she was interested at first and then when she got the imformation her attitude took a turn. She wasn't interested and told me "to pick my battles wisely" . Sounds like a good use of taxpayer money. Later I told a teacher in the system what had happened. They said that's the way she does and she was trying to find out what I had on them first.
Same here! I was told to contact her first concerning my son, she acted interested in helping my son at first over the phone, but when I presented her with the proof she was no longer interested in helping us with the issue.

Stupid? Are you an adult? Teachers don't like testing because it proves very little. Teachers spend very little time actually testing. The time burden of testing falls on the school counselor because they have organize and prepare the test. Did you enjoy your fall break last year? I'm sure your looking forward to it this year. Have you tried getting a job in another system?
I'm shouldn't even respond to your idiotic response. I happen to be a teacher, and know what it is like to do nothing but prep the kids for testing, have practice TCAP, TCAP, Constructive Response TCAP, ETC ETC. The time burden falls on the school counselor- REALLY??? So, I guess he/she is the one who teaches the students to make sure they are prepared for the tests. You are so dumb, and it is obvious you are not a teacher. I guess you are the school counselor who is messing around with Ron Dykes. As for Fall Break, I would much rather stay in school until the end of May and start no earlier than mid August. It's ridiculous to make teachers and students start back the 1st of August. Pooh on Fall Break. We get 3 days in for Thanksgiving, out half of December, and then have snow days that we have earned. No, I'd do away with October break in a heart beat. TEACHERS OUT THERE_HOW DO YOU FEEL?
After having to start 1st of August, we darn sure need a week off in October. I am not looking forward to starting inservice July 31st. Get your head out of your butt. You are so clueless. Why am I wasting my time on your stupid comments.

Read my name-you're it!! What has my comment got to do with my career. How dare you make comments about me and my career. If I knew who you were, I'd slap you. I didn't say I didn't love teaching. I don't love the school calendar. So, you are WAY off base. How I feel about my job has NOTHING to do with my dislike of the early start date-NOTHING! Don't make idiotic comments about teachers/students having to start back 1st of August, when you are obviously not a teacher or work in the system. I'm sure there are some teachers who prefer the October break, but most of the ones I have talked to don't-they would rather go later in May and come back later in August. Families have to have their vacations over in mid July in order to be back and get ready for school. Like your name you posted-Illogical!! or Illogic as you put it
