Why are so many good teachers leaving BCMS. My son will be there this coming year and I am concerned with the number of teachers leaving. Heard many negative comments about principal Mike Edmonds from parents and teachers. Any info?

Several schools around the county have lost teachers this year. Some have gone to the city of Johnson City, and some have gone to Kingsport City @ a pay increase of between 8,ooo to 16,000 more than what WCDE will pay them. "These are GOOD Teachers." Washinton County is way under funded. But lets give another "BONUS" and hire more useless "Mower Men" to mow fields that we as tax payers don't see a return on for Ball tournaments. Don't think that the admin. is the total reason for the losses. But who knows??

. Those good teachers went to other county schools because the principal lacks leadership skills.

Mike Edmonds needs a lesson in how to treat others. He talks down to others especially to women. Parents are not impressed with him. BCMS students and teachers deserve better treatment.

So all this crap about how they just want to educate kids is indeed crap. They went after the money- good for them. I didn't think there were any Capitalist left in the education system only PC socialist. A little ray of hope.

Edmonds had the poorest evaluations in county by teachers 2nd year in a row. Third year in a row should mean change of leadership next year. He also talks down to custodians and assistants. Weak in discipline.

Then why is he allowed to continue being the principal?

And just how would you know this, be honest? I teach for Washington County and the principal evaluations have not yet been made public. Further, I don't know when or if they will. I do know that the principal and vice-principal evaluations were not revealed to the teachers last year, so I am curious as to where you are getting your information.

By law evaluations can be viewed if their is reason-this will get easier in TN as laws progress to deal with poor educators. There is a website you can visit to see evaluations of schools. Nice try Mike-you know the Tell Tennessee website-god luck with test scores this year.

The boosters really have nothing to do with this post of Edmonds poor leadership and people skills. I do realize it was used as point made. But since it was brought up the boosters do an ok job. The leaders need to feel important and noticed. The banquet was in a poor place,too small, parking inadequate, not enough food and too much whining and self pity from the 2 doing it without a clue. Vanessa thinks she is more important than she really is because she works for Chamber Of Commerce which are slowly becoming of the past. Overall boosters have done well. The principal had one good year for the most part. He is not good with people. When he left South Central there was a cookout celebrating his departure.

Mike Edmonds is doing a good job. He is going on four years now as Principal and faced many challenges,staff changes for the better,teacher evaluations and curriculum changes. There are staff members who cannot be pleased and some who have a hard time seeing their fellow teacher as their leader. The school improved in many ways last year and will continue. Mike truly cares about the students. When faced with a discipline issue he uses common sense and compassion. It is easy to hand down punishments but for the good of the child you must look at their home life too. Regarding the sports banquet the ladies in charge did a fine job. The shortage on food was cater's error and quickly resolved. To fault these ladies for their efforts is ignorant. They wanted something really special for the players. It must be easy to sit on your ass behind a computer and criticize. I would suggest getting to know the principal and what he faces day to day. I also would suggest helping the boosters in the work they do for the players not themselves.

When he was principal he couldnt keep his hands off of his girlfriend/instructional assistant during school hours. Parents complained many times about his courtship at SC. Teachers were annoyed when he chased her during school hours. I have friends who told this at ball tournaments. He will deny it but it is true.
