He is
a woman hater! He treated the women that worked under him like dirt. I think it is because he is a "puss". Thank you mchs grad for calling it like it is! He liked the young, pretty women though! Glad he is gone and not our problem anymore! Where did he go? Surely another school didn't hire him?

Agree with awesome. I'll never forget the day, before one of our dances, he came over the intercom and announced there would be no "booty digging" allowed. Priceless.

I am not saying this to defend Stevens because I am NOT a fan but there is no way that he alone got you expelled for anything! Principals do NOT have the power to expel students. They recommend that a student be expelled but then a hearing is held and the Board of Education has the final decision whether a student is expelled or not. There has to be an act of gross disobedience or misconduct (drugs, alcohol, violence, etc.) for a student to be expelled. If the BOARD expelled you when you hadn't done anything wrong then I suggest you get an attorney.

I heard that he has told many lies to the board and they believed him. He is a sneaky, evil little man that does not have the balls to act like an adult. And a principal does have the power to expel a student short term, if it is long term then it will go before the board where his OPINION will be listened to. If you get on the wrong side of him or disagree with him he will find a way to get rid of you whether true or not! Did another district actually hire him?

A principal does not have the power to expel a student. When a student is removed from the school for a short period of time by the principal or asst principal it is called a suspension, NOT expulsion. Other than that, I agree with you.

Well, at MCHS, he had a habit of firing substitute teachers over minor, correctable issues. He relied on gossip and hearsay from other teachers for decision making, without documentation and due process. He would advise the sub coordinator to "stop calling" a sub, without confronting the sub himself. When the coordinator divulged this information to the sub, he had the coordinator fired as well.

Any employee without tenure, and not in the union, was fair game. If Stevens could get rid of someone without any repercussions, he would do so. Most of these jobs didn't pay much anyway, and weren't worth fighting for. Some of the subs were financially independent, and just subbed to help kids, and have something productive to do.

This was over a decade ago, and I don't know what his management style is like now. I will say that there seems to be a lot more people who don't like him, than do. This includes students, parents, teachers, and minor acquaintances as well.
