Like I've said before, these sick, peverted people are in the right job for being child molestors. I have also said the school systems needs to do psycological testing on these people, and if there is any doubt, tell them to hit the road, flag their files for the next place they go.I drive a bus for VB, and it took from Oct. to January before I could start work, waiting on a background check to be done. Why are there still teachers out there who have been "grandfathered" because they have been teaching so long. They could also be perverts.

Go to dailyadvance.com and read the comments to their article on this subject. This teacher should not be criticized so harshly. He's not a perv and he'll pay for this mistake in judgment the rest of his life. The teenager in question is known as a flirt and she seems to be proud of what she did and loves the attention at school (my daughter also attends PCHS and had this teacher last year). The girl is a new student, I wonder why she left her old school, did she do the same thing there?

I am a student of this teacher and I still don't think that he did anything like this.I just can't believe my ears nor my eyes as I'm hearing and reading this story.I weep now because the teacher that we're stuck with now is not helping at all.Since we've lost this great teacher, everyone's confidence has gone way down.

He is my second period teacher at PCHS (Pasquotank) and he was one of my most favorite teachers in High School. I think it is not true. FREE MR. WHEDBEE

I had Mr. Whedbee as a teacher when he taught at Perquimans County High School. He is a awesome teacher, and a good man. I do not believe that he would do this. And yes, I have read everything, heard all the rumors, and talked to people about this situation. Mr. Whedbee is my favorite teacher. He was back then and he still is. He has been there for me whenever I needed him, and no matter what the outcome is, I will be there for him.

Ok, many of you think this guy is a gem of a teacher, a good guy, you know only what he LETs you see. Of course he isn't going to get up in front of a bunch of students and tell them he has this sick crush on a 15 yr old. I KNOW a family member very well, believe me, he is guilty. He admitted it to his wife, that is why he NO LONGER lives at his house. If he were so good and innocent, she would be standing beside him with loving support. Instead, she threw his sick butt out and will get a divorce. His family is devistated. You students can think he's all that all you want to, and I pray that your children never have a teacher like him, looking so good, so innocent, and there behind close doors take your child and carry on like a pervert/child molestor. Don't get me wrong, I don't believe this girl was little miss innocent either, but he should have had enough strength to say NO.

i remember standing in the hallway telling him that i couldn't wait to be into his class. i've always heard he was a good teacher.
i don't really believe the whole "sex" thing
but i know she said she loved him and they sent messages back & fourth to each other
it was always werid when they flirted in the hallways
you could always tell something was going on by the way they looked at each other

you see everything happening with all these teachers at other schools with the same charges but i'd never expect it at my school

I had Mr. Whedbee last semester and he was always telling us about the things he saw and the stories he has heard about the people who did what people think Mr. Whedbee did. He always told us how much jail time they got, the punishments that went on, and all the negative things about it. I dont believe that he did it. He was one of my favorite teachers and he always had us laughing. Its just another girl in our school wanting attention. FREE MR. WHEDBEE

You are right. And the funny thing is.. THIS IS HER FIRST TIME IN PUBLIC SCHOOL!!! She has been home-schooled. I know the girl. She should have stayed home.

I hope the allegations about Mr. Whedbee are not true (although it sounds like there is some truth to it-time will tell). Mr. Whedbee was a great teacher. He was very knowledgeable and one of the few National Board Certified teachers (the highest credential in the teaching profession) employed by the Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools. I really hope he didn't throw it all away by having "indecent liberties" with a student. It just goes to show you anybody can succumb to life's temptations.

first of all...we'd all like to say that we love mr. whedbee & he's a great man!!!...mr. whedbee was the type of teacher, who cared about everyone and pushed for everyone to be better and try their best.He's human & yes, making mistakes are possible, but we honestly don't feel as though he's being treated fairly(but who are we to judge). we also feel that it is wrong for the pchs staff to walk around and pretend like nothing is going on. we're almost adults and situations like this should not be sheltered from our eyes and ears.

I know Mr Whedbee and he is/was a nice man.But remember if something is printed that is untrue about him ,or reported,he could go back on them for doing that.I think he will be in prison for a long time which is sad since he was a good teacher.That girl was home schooled,but I feel sorry for the wife and family of Mr Whedbee.He has a step son who is at that school and he graduates this year.What is happening with people when a 15 year old,knowing full well he was married and still did not respect his wife.I read her myspace site and she quotes scripture on her blogs and goes on and on about her new boyfriend.She has not evidently realized she destroyed a family.She needs to take that scripture down and replace it with scripture about fornication and adultry................
