1. He is too young to be a teacher. No one should even be allowed to teach, to include at the university level, until age 40. By then they have a history and we know their character. Plus by age 40 they actually have enough life experience to pass on to students.
2. At 26, he is barely older than most of the girls in the school. Too close in ages.
I wouldn't go in to teaching after making a livable income for 18 years... what an insult to those of us who are professional young teachers.

Drunk Driving, and posession of marijuana, regardless of wether it was 3ounces, 30ounces, 130ounces or 130pounds. He needs to be fired and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. No plea bargains, no "suspension with pay". This is someone who is supposed to be a roll model for children. And people wonder why I am a strong advocate of returning to hangins on the courthouse lawn.
What he does when he is not on the job is his business. now if he was smoking pot in the classroom for sure lol hang him high. Im glad that you are such a perfect person that you can judge people like that. I'm sure that you never did anything wrong but when you do we will hang you right next to him. lol

I'd like to know why WLFI even reports news for Rensselaer. We don't even receive the station in Rensselaer, we're in a complete different time zone/area code etc. and pretty far from Lafayette. I'm tired of that lame station reporting. It tries to report for my hometown, south of Lafayette, and here in Rensselaer WLFI has always been a horrible station

This is crazy.

I'm glad that he wasn't a real important teacher.

I don'think that he should be paid for being suspended.

Just another slap on the hand.

there could have been a much worse drug involved this drug is grown naturally even the indians smoked it around the camp fire u should try it u might loosen up a little at least its not crackand also he wasnt smoking it at school in front of the students what u do at home on your own time is your own business.

C'mon, it was just weed. I'm sure most of you drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes. Only because your government legalized those drugs( they make a pretty penny might I add) you think they're ok? I bet if pot was legal there would be less people on antidepressants and antianxiety medication. Give the guy a break. Personally, as long as he wasn't in school, it's his business. Chill out, it was only weed.

The point is that even weed is illegal. What's next on your agenda? I can hear it now: "It was just a little crack" "He was only doing heroin at home" "That girl was only 5 years under age"

My point is this: What he did was illegal, period. And for that he should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. And the same goes for anyone doing anything like that.
