the principle of seymour middle,dr. nelson was overheard by another mother at seymour schools pointing out to apx 20 othere students that my daughter and her friend were "half-naked" and that everyone should "look" at them. she went on to say,"don't they look half naked everyone?" If she truly thought that the girls were inappropriately dressed she should have protected them instead of parading them and trying to humiliate them in front of their peers. I feel that is sexual harrassment of my child! I dont know what to do about this! If a predator took an inappropriate picture of my daughter and posted it on the internet he /she would be charged appropriately by the powers that be. Can someone suggest what i should do? I really need help as this Principal harasses my daughter daily. I have spoken to other parents who are having the same problem with the same principle.

I don't know how yours are dressing, but in my opinion:
If they are showing too much "skin" or their clothes is tight enough fit a 2nd grader, then they are half naked. I mean relly this is 12-13 year old girls who wants to dress this way, but it is up to the parent to use their best of moral judgemnet to decide if the clothes are to revealing.
I've seen these kids (not yours ..kids in general), with their parents, dressed like they are hookers in training. it's just sad knowing there is predetors out there, and parents let them go out looking like that. Don't get me wrong sickos will abduct kids who are not dressed "slutty", but this only feeds their sick minds.

Dr. Nelson should not be a principal in any school. She seems to relish tormenting students who don't fit the mold of "perfect student". If you are in special education classes, you are not worthy. If you are not in Beta Club, you are not worthy. If you are not an athlete or cheerleader, you are not worthy. If the student's parents are not wealthy or have some kind of political pull in the area, you are not worthy.
She is a bully. The sad part is, IF you get enough parents together to protest and get her out of Seymour Middle School, she will be promoted to a higher position in the school system. The good thing would be that she would no longer be in the position where she can humiliate and push around our children.
BTW, she bullies her staff too.

the bitch was the librarian at seymour middle and was always really hard on boys for their mistakes, but was so much softer on the girls. also that gwen hardin lady. she was my 6th grade math teacher. i was a good kid, a/b student, but she treated me like some kind of punk. always talked down to me, always had an attitude, i guess because she got smart with my parents at a pta meeting and they set her ass straight. but nevertheless, she didnt deserve to be allowed to retire. she should have been fired after all the incidents she had. i wasnt the only one she was nasty to, and im sure others h=got it worse than me.

No disrespect intended, but was your daughter dressed in a provocative manner? If so, maybe she needed to be "called out" on it. That happened a few times to people when I was in High School… it was embarrassing for them, but sometimes embarrassment is an effective teaching tool for correcting wrong behavior.

I would believe Mrs. Nelson doing that,but I would also believe girls these days being scantilly clad lol.But anyway when I was in middle school,my mom was well aware of the dress codes and only bought clothes accordingly-Mrs. Nelson come up to me during lunch and called me out on my shorts..hello,I was sitting down,obviously they're gonna ride up from my knees a little while sitting..my mom and I even had a meeting with Mr Wade after school and he agreed that I shouldn't have been called out.Besides,I was a pretty big kid,I wasn't gonna wear anything that was too short or what not..oh and yeah I had Mrs. Hardin too and she was awful to everyone..I hated that class..
