Maybe discipline is his thing for both students and staff. He should lay low the first year to see how the school runs and then the following year put his foot down on what changes he would like to make. We need the discipline on the kids. We have one to may kids that use their parents to get out of trouble. That needs to stop. Every student needs to be treated equally.

Out of curiosity who is going to be the new JH principal and band director? My son said he saw an ad in the Progress for a new band director.

Principal has a reputation just like his wife. Heard that not only the kids rubbed his legs as his article says so did his current wife. He was asked to leave Premont because he and the secretary were having a spicy affair in his office. And now you know about his current wife the school secretary.

I guess his secretary wife will have to worry then. The high school in GW has some hot women working there. We are a laid back community. I like that I can walk into that office and the staff is not intimidating to be around. Everything is casual.

That is some pretty harsh gossip you are throwing out there. I hope none of it is true and he does his job above standards. You see, in GW, there is no such thing as standard.

I hope he is fair and equal with every student and he makes sure his teachers do the same as well. There is a lack of discipline in both students and teachers and parents.

I think what they're trying to say is he and his secretary had an affair prior to being married.

Regardless, I don't care about his personal life. As long as he can put these pushy parents in their places and discipline some of these students and biased teachers. We lost some good teachers and coaches this past year due to small town politics.

It seems no one is concern about the ethics involved in being and administrator. When you become a principal you are bounded by the ethics you pledged too.

He is here and we need to give him a chance to prove to us that he is what we needed to clean up that political mess involving students and parents in highschool.

He was a good principal in Premont. It was AFTER he was forced to leave and told if he didn't his now current wife would be fired. They both did their jobs well. After he left...Premont Elem fell apart! The kids ruled the school and the scores hit the tank. There was never an incident if inappropriate behavior while on school grounds. The idiot sup at the time had "other" plans and motives so he pounced on the opportunity to remove Waterhouse, reassign the the HS principal Johnson to the Elem and "promote" they crocked asst. principal John Gonzalez who later got a student pg and was asked to leave without even collecting his things. Now, you know the whole story!

From what I have heard from GWHS teachers, parents, and students, I am not impressed with his version of leadership so far. He is not professional with his teachers, and if he were to speak to my child like he has spoken to some of the students... Let's just say he is probably a lawsuit waiting to happen.
