Now who is being condemning and hateful? I only expressed my opinion, which is my right. If you disagree, then, hey, that is your right to do so. However, this isnt about you or me. I respect your opinion. I expect you to respect mine, even if you disagree. I dont have to prove anything to anybody. Im doing my best to accept what is, but I also want to make a point of teaching my children that certain things that people do (adultery) are not what they should emulate.They have experienced enough pain firsthand to know what it does to families. As a matter of fact, in some societies throughout the world, people are executed or jailed if they are caught in the act of adultery. Fortunately, that isnt the case in our country. I hope and pray that your family doesnt experience what we have.

It is clear, based on what you have said, that your resentment is from your own personal experience and has nothing at all to do with this man. Hopefully you will be able to heal from your own pain enough to stop taking it out on others. Sin is sin and all of it is forgiven by God. Don't dredge up the past that has been covered by the blood of Jesus. God Himself doesn't hold these things against us. Leave it under the blood for your own sake. Be free of it.

And you really believe he has the power to make that decision? If you do, then you are very naive. Only a board of education can eliminate positions. Start pointing the finger in the right direction and stop believing every word that comes from some people's mouths. If you think any principal wants to lose people in their building, then you don't understand the job!
By the way, rumor is Salem and Lost Creek will have a half time librarian before next school year starts.
Sounds to me that you just want to blame this principal and not work with him. Work with him and maybe Salem will improve!

don't believe that it was wrote that he was at fault for losing library, you might have assumed that but you know what happens when you assume right? But I do know that there were teachers willing to give him a chance at the begginning of the year that no longer feel that way. BTW the BOE (or at least several memebers) are publicly telling everyone that David recommended that the librarian position be cut so maybe thats why people believe that. Its hard to imagine you can't believe what the BOE says (note my sarcasm please). Also just so you know I don't think hes actually to blame for losing him people at salem he just won't stand up to the boe.

I have had quite a few run ins with David Decker this year he is by far the most self absorbed principal I have ever met in my life. He presumes that he knows it all and attempts to intimidate parents. It didn't go well when he tried that with me I know my childrens rights and will accept nothing less. I haven't had a bad experience with Kathy she's always been polite and respectful when I have dealt with her. I however have honestly contemplated moving my children out of salem elementary because of David Decker I have no complaints with any teachers or other staff. Salem has the potential to be an amazing little school but while David Decker remains there on his power trip I don't have high hopes for its future.. its really quite sad that he has a position that allows him to degrade children and their parents.
