What kind of job is Lesley Smith doing at LA ? From what i hear not too good. Names left off class officer and homecoming ballotts. Are you serious? Whose responsible for that mess ? If you ask her, i'm sure she would blame someone else. Even worse, academics are dropping over there. and discipline is a joke. I figured adding mr miller with all his experience would help in that area. In the end, she is head dog so it's her job too see things are done right. She also has the personality of a shoe. Anybody else have any thoughts on ms smith ?

I have some thoughts. Of course since you brought it up I'm sure people will continue to bash her. But I'm guessing you have no clue what her job is like. I think she's doing a good job. Jobs are delegated to others and I'm sure the homecoming ballots are one of the least of her worries in the grand scheme of things. I've been there and it seems like things are pretty structured, kids are in the classroom for instruction, and I'd like to see your concrete proof that academics are dropping at LA. I know for a fact that she is all about academics. Sounds like you are mad because of something to do with class elections and homecoming.

I went there and had Mr. Miller as a teacher. He's a really cool guy but he acts like more of a kid than the students do. He actually had students to do a lot of his responsibilities. And as far as Ms. Smith, she is a really good principal... at times.
There was once were a certain teacher made a fool of a certain student in front of their entire class.. and other people tried to have some of the "higher faculty" do something about it. If anything to make her just apologize to the kid. They told everyone to just drop it and leave it alone.
No teacher should EVER make a fool of a student. No matter how much they don't like them, or if they aren't in that specific teacher's "pets" category.

I completly agree that a teacher shouldn't never try to make a kid look foolish. Same thing should go for a coach as well. I've never seen kids treated or talked to like the LA boys basketball coach does. He degrades and belittles them worse than anybody i've ever seen without(it appears) any consequenses. In my humble opinion, it gives the school as a whole a black eye. I don't know what kind of job ms smith does inside the school, i guess pretty good, but she should get a handle on Mr.M. It might do him some good to take a look in the mirror before trying to make the boys look foolish.

I actually like the way he coaches. He gets after them when they don't work hard. Most good coaches do that. Coach Melton has a great team every year but people like you still slam him. What about the way the football coaches yell at their players. Heard Ms Smith got in the face of one of her players last weekend. It happens in competitive sports, idiot. If you don't like his coaching then stay home. Maybe you'll find something at home to complain about. And as far as the family comment. Are you telling me that you wouldn't play the Ramseys and Kailen Melton? Funny how people like you continue to bitch about him and coach smith and they just keep winning. Funny thing tho is Melton prolly couldn't give a crap bout what you people think. He cares about his players and gets alot out of them.

He needs to act 40, or however the hell old he is, instead of 4. I'll guarantee you the football coaches don't talk DOWN to there players like Melton does. Never known the football coaches to cancel practice just because they got there rears handed to them either. Only to call it back on cause they got over there crying spell. Coaches have somewhat of a responsiblity as role models. Not whiny cry babys when things don't go well.

Sounds like you are pretty close to it since you have so many details. Good luck.

Agreed! Coaches are to be looked up to by their players, their players parents, fans, and other coaches. Noone respects the actions of Coach M. It really is time to grow up. You can tell this is a growing problem when the players act more mature than their coach.
