everyone that knows mr pappas knows he wouldnt do anything like this. and it's like, if a teacher gets on your nerves, all you have to do is say they touched you, and they are fired! it happens every day, one girl i know even accused her own father, cost him his job, and destroyed his life, later to find out it was all because he took away her phone. now they both live with her grandma. innocent until proven guilty??? oh yeah, and FYI princton wont hire mr pappas back even if he is innocent his carreer is over. he is gone from teaching foreve, just because of the allogations.

I can't believe this. -.- it's so upsetting. I remember him as a teacher and he seemed so eager to teacher and help us find a way to learn better. He never appeared to be too close or inappropriate. :( he helped so much with kids that were bullied and tried making it so everyone had fun learning math. I could never have foreseen this happen. :(

I can't believe this is happening he was a great teacher and never acted inappropriately. He was kind and a great person. I enjoyed his class a lot an I'm sure anyone that was in his class would agree. I hope this all gets cleared up soon and if it isn't true that girl will be in so much trouble for building false accusations. His career is all messed up now because of her I would hate to be in her shoes if she lied. He is a very honest man and had a great reputation but now it's all gone. Like I said before hopefully she isn't lying because if she is she also ruined her reputation, so remember "honesty".

My opinion. Too many teachers charged. Too many true. Too many wrongful charges. He says, she says? Cops must be sure. Charges devastate. True or false. My opinion.

Mr.Pappas is not like this or what it seemed to me. When i heard it was him i could not believe that it was true and still cant. I miss seeing a smile on his face because he is doing what he loves. Mr. Pappas is a wonderful and bright teacher. He helped us with problems outside of school. My bestfriend and I could talk to him about anything. I think if he is found innocent he should be able to come back. I MISS HIM. I so wish this wouldnt of happened to Mr. Pappas because i wanted him next year for math.
