Mr Faralan was such a good teacher. I don't know whether or not the accusations are true. He has a right to explain himself. I know when I nwas in school I heard rumors about this going on 3 years ago and now it comes up again.

This is for all you non-believers, former Longwood high school teacher in Long Island New York appeared in the Suffolk County court to answer charges of sexual misconduct. The evidence presented was so overwhelming. He had no choice. He pleaded guilty to the charges. Not only did he damage the victim's life but he also damaged his family's lives. This is something he will have to live with. I'm sure by now he can see his life spiraling downward and there is no end to it! And getting back to the nonbelievers, You should've also learned the lesson. You may have read the page, but you didn't understand it. Things are not always what they appear to be!

It doesn't matter how much you loved him as a teacher or as a person. I've known him for many years and he is wrong. As a teacher and a man he should have known better. Teaching WAS his career and that means that kids are off limits. This is not the girls fault. He is the fool that was thinking with something other than this head. He was the only one wrong and now he is paying for it.

History doesn't change, what's reported in the newspapers does. When I was in high school, a prominent history teacher was fired because of "engaging" with a student. When I was in college, a coach was ousted because of unprofessional conduct to ENTIRE TEAMS of athletes. None of these events were reported - everyone was told to keep everything "hush hush..."

It also involves "office politics." No one in charge wants to have something like that brought out in the open while they ran the school, so they convince the students that it didn't really happen, or maybe they were mistaken about the events that took place ...

But some students are lucky enough to have support from administrators and finally come forward when they're convinced that it's not normal behavior.

For anyone who thinks it's a walk in the park to tell administrators that you've been felt-up by your teacher or coach, I don't wish Karma on you.

It took two teams of girls to convince a college administrator that the coach was doing VERY inappropriate things.

After he was let-go, another school hired him immediately afterward... Nice background check, folks.

... and oh yeah - (from above) the coach was a GREAT guy. We just didn't think it was appropriate for him to be caressing us or undressing with us in our locker rooms...

( Wow some of you are really arguing with each other ...) I was raised to believe that EVERYTHING that happens was my fault. So as sad as it is, I also believe that a 16-year-old wouldn't come forward with the info. Back then, there would be NO WAY IN HELL that I would have reported anything like that on my own. It's called "Pre-conditioning."

Faralan was a great teacher and held his students to a high standard. his teaching methods were unique in the sense that he actually held students accountable for their work and studies. ive read many immature comments about his teaching and it is evident that the comments are from failing students. as a teachers assistant i seen his agenda and curriculum, and my no means was he a man of low moral standing. this is a sad situation and he and his family are in my prayers.
