This sucks. All I've heard is a bunch of Winnie's whinnen bout somebody saying things they think he shouldn't , an homework lost, an yet good sol scores. What the fart is this all about. Sounds like a group of stuckups trying to run their little suck up town.
When SOL scores r good, yeah, that's great! But when a teacher loses numerous assignments,causing a normally straight-A student to get zero's mixed in his/her avg, thus causing that average to go down, that is BAD! UNACCEPTABLE if u ask me ...

I think that ALL of the supporting comments in Collier's favor ARE indeed from Collier himself..I cannot believe that ANYONE that half way knows him would be in FAVOR of that trash talking excuse for a teacher..He shouldn't be allowed around children at ALL..What if the tables were turned on you ? and your daughter is 12 and how nasty would you let it get before stepping in? Or do you say and do the same stuff to your own child...
i think that all the positive posts about this are from intelligent adults who are saying nothing more than THIS is neither the Place or the Time to be saying the things that are said here. It is reflecting the mental abilities of the parents and children in this county,(not to mention the TEACHERS of all people) the fact that they are name callers and use a public forum to trash out anybody is totally unacceptable. Agree or Disagree with the fact he should be teaching or not, THIS IS WRONG!
yes i have a child in this grade and his class, i heard nothing and the child had good grades.
regardless i would not treat anyone in this manner, it puts you in the same class as the "Anyone in lebanon have a foot fetish" posters! and we all know they say and do what the want on the Lebanon Forum, BUT you people are speaking of education! You should be more adult than this!!
if you fired every male teacher or coach or female teacher who looked in a suspicious way at any student male or female, then you would have VERY few teachers IF ANY left in the system.

For your information, I am not Mr. Collier and I do not teach, I just think that is totally pathic that parents are so unable to be fair and listen to the other side of the story instead of repeating remarks by a teenager. In my experience most teenagers are not very mature and can be very vicious when they are not catered too. I do not even know Mr. Collier, however, I have also been judged in the town of Lebanon on the remarks made by someone that didn't like the fact that Icould stand up for myself. I am not from Russell County,so being an outsider, I can feel very sad for Mr. Collier. In 15 years in this town, people still act so rude to me, I really don't give a hoot, however, it is just an example of how people behave to outsiders in this town.......

Really are u for Real, sounds as if you are speaking more in general, doesn't sound as if you have or had a child in his class, my child is a strait A student and creditable and still has plenty to say about this man and his lack of teaching all they did was watch videos no class discussions about Sci anyway and HE would loose their tests and or assignments after THEY turned them in, they get a zero for an assignment that they did, now if their grade gets screwed how's that the childs fault?? A few posters here sound as if they are friends of mr collier or its mr collier himself!! The real issue here is that he had been driving to school on a restricted license for a DUI then was busted for a DIP only weeks prior to having the drug dogs hit his car on school property! If he was such a good teacher or no different than the rest and he could actually think outside of the box, then why is it that the principal of the school had sat in on several of his classes to observe, I haven't heard of this happening with any of the other teachers! As far as the topic of conversions that he had with the students goes, very inappropriate and no I don't think other teachers are explaining such things to the students such as how to make meth and moonshine, how marijuana has an impact on evolution, and I don't think he or any other teacher should be discussing their personal lives in depth!! Oh my girlfriend and I blaa bla or my ex girlfriend Kim Robinson was a drug addict, when I was in the air force we bla bla none of their business if you ask me!! No matter what you guys think he was not nor will ever be teacher material, just as how he was ran outta the air force ran outta Tazwell schools so shall it be with Russell co. And if he's lucky to get another position at a different school it wont take long for them to open up their eyes as well!!!
ALL teachers are evaluated and observed in the classroom by their principal. This is done every three years. Mr. Collier graduated from Richlands, but HE NEVER TAUGHT THERE. You should have lived during the Salem witch trials or in Nazi Germany, then everyone you came in contact with that you did not like you could have gotten them out of the way. You are really setting an example for your children. I glad your not my neighbor!!!!!

Just for your info life Sci isnt even taught til8th grade
Beg your pardon!! Life science is taught in the 7th grade. Physical science is taught in the 8th grade!! It is a watered down version of chemistry and physics while life science is a watered down version of biology. This is standard in the state of Virginia!! Half of the 8th grade SOL IS Life science and the other half is 6th grade science and 8th grade science. If you are a TEACHER in Virginia, you should know this!!!

Sci is based on a broad spectrum until 8th grade in which its classified into branches 8th being life then earth biology etc until then they learn a little of it all so yes your child could have done animal n plant cells one six weeks then earth sci another, in 8th and up they will study only one branch the entire school year. Tiger lady stated that 50 percent of the Sci SOL given in 8th was primarily made up of life science thus the vast majority of the lesson material was covered by the 8th grade teacher, the foundation was laid by 6th and 7th grade teachers.
In Virginia, 9th grade science is Earth Science, 10th grade is Biology, and then Chemistry or Physics.

What other side to the story can their be when your science "teacher" is sitting there telling you about how him and his friends got drunk one night and picked up a lady on a street corner? Or when he tells you about how his ex girlfriend through cans at his head one night after they got in a fight over how to bathe their daughter? Yes, conversations in class sometimes stray away from the subject you teach, but what kind of teacher would discuss his history with prostitution, drugs, relationships, and so on, with 11 year olds? I know more about his ex-girlfriends than I do science. That's the honest truth.

i say we evaluate EVERY teacher including the ones related to the school board and befriended by the higher-ups in this county.
Fire every one who doesn't live up to the evaluation!!
and lets get outsiders to do the evaluation, NOT local prejuidce people who have something to gain, get independent evaluaters who have no ties with Russel county and it's "owners" Evaluate them according to their abilities to TEACH disregarding their Last Names, and employement history, and that goes for Principals and Everybody else envolved!!

Hope the ones on here that was accussing Will has proff that he done what each and every individual accussed him of. After all is said and done they want be noone on here talking bad about anyone else. Will was highly intelligent man and so you folks that made false statements on here will be held responsible. If these statements were told by students why was this not addressed by the adults? Why was it not reported to police? Yall was concerned im concerned on why was it not addressed

Umm...why not evaluate the parents sending their children to school unprepared and/ or disrespectful to teachers. Teachers can't teach as they want because of the behavior issues parents often refuse to acknowledge. Let's start evaluating a few parents...
