im sure she did. i think moccasin voters need to get rid of her anyway. they complain about a raise but they worked out a way for all the teachers to keep their jobs and not get laid off if they don't want to work i'm almost finished with my degree and would be thankful to have a job. teaching is not for the money it should be for the children. I do think ol puckett should take a pay cut i heard he's getting more than lorraine did.

"We have spent some of that money. We had forty one non-speaking English children and we had to hire some teachers for those children," says Linda Cross, a member of the Russell County School Board.

They should fire that Vanessa Parker and hire a new teacher for her position and she needs to be in the aslum. She is a crazy nutt.

My daughter had her and all she did was scream and yell, she is a nutt. My daughter said she admitted that she was on Prozak and Xanex and they should be glad or she might go off and kill half of her class. What kind of teacher is this and what crazy school board hired such a nutt.

Vanessa Parker needs to be fired and I personally will be at the next school board meeting to help get rid of the psycho.

Linda Cross needs to go! Does she even have a high school diploma?? She needs to be voted out and what I am hearing from our lower end, her term is up as far as the voters go.

I had Ms Parker for 3 math classes while at LHS, she is a wonderful teacher, little strange yes, but who isn't. I'm doing good in college in Math. Thank you Ms. Parker.

Sad that Russell County has the lowest paid teachers in the state. Instead of taking this money and raising the salaries of the teachers we already have, we must cater to immigrants. Howsabout requiring these children to learn ENGLISH as a requirement to attend public school in the UNITED STATES where ENGLISH is the primary language. Sometimes this place makes me sick. More concerned with meeting the needs of those who are born in other countries instead of our own. I understand people immigrate to the US for better opportunities, but it's gotten WAY out of hand. We are overpopulated & inflation's high. Too damn much demand and not enough supply. I say go back to where you come from.

I am a teacher in Russell Co and take offense to this statement. We are in this for the children, but that doesn't mean that we don't deserve to be adequately paid. Russell Co is 129 out of 132 school districts in the state of Virginia. We haven't received a raise or a step in 2 years despite a rise in the cost of living. The money that we lobbied for was earmarked for teacher salaries by the state. We are not saying that we do not appreciate our jobs, or love what we do, we simply have families to support ourselves. I admire that you are going into the education field with such a desire to do good for today's youth, but you have tried to raise a family on our salaries. I feel you have no room to judge. We have raised test scores above the state average, have fully accredited schools, and work hard every day. We simply are asking for what we deserve..

Some of you people need an English class. Can't even spell. It's there not their, Honaker not Honoker. Proper Names are captialized..Teachers are very special and they need to love the children they teach, but they also received an education, they have families to raise, and they deserve every penny they make. I do not think they get enough money for all the hrs. they put in. No, I am not a teacher. Wish I had a college degree so I could teach but I am not that lucky. Parents, teach your children respect at home and they will respect these wonderful teachers. COLLINs, Linda has worked hard for the Moccasion area and she does have a high school diploma. She will be re-elected, wait and see.Wonderful lady.

Now it`s about Spelling not the children that why the Teachers should TREAT the KIDS better than what they do.Some of the Teacher are wonderful and some of them are what they are.Now what is this COLLINs, spelling COLLINS now our kids are not being treated well they need to be is this because the teachers aren`t getting paid enought money? If one of the Teacher were treating another Teachers child BAD wonder what would happen?It would turn out different.

This needs to change they are no better than the rest. J.Honaker is not being good to her class and everyone knows .Why won`t they do something about this getting ready to go to the S.B. the kids hate going to school.Parents need to take their kids with them to talk and children don`t LIE.

You can go but nothing would be done. S.B. is about spending money and feeling important.They ain't about the kids and don't care about the teachers either.

Lebanon Middle School (LMS) does not have 2nd grade. This is 'middle school' 5th - 7th. If you are going be so ignorant as to degrade a school or a teacher please do a little bit of research so your ignorance is not so noticeable.

Lebanon Middle is a great school with a faculty and staff that busts their butts to see that our children are educated and safe.
