Teacher fired for 'inappropriate relationship with student

August 11, 2011

A Catawba County Schools middle school teacher was fired Thursday for an "inappropriate" relationship with a high school student.

Catawba County Schools Board of Education voted Thursday to terminate Mill Creek Middle School teacher Charles "Chuck" Settlemyre for six stated reasons, according to CCS Superintendent Glenn Barger. All of those reasons were related to "inappropriate conversation and contact with a student," he said. The contact occurred during the spring semester of the 2010 school year, he said.

"We have dismissed him and we will make a recommendation to the state for the revocation of his teacher certification," Barger said. "It is up to (the state) whether they do that. The school board attorney will be submitting the information that we have, with the action the board took today."

...GET PROSECUTED. SURE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE FULL EXTENT OF HIS OFFENSES!

TIME TO PUT SOME DISCIPLINE BACK IN THE SCHOOLS, BOTH FOR THE STUDENTS AND THE TEACHERS.

TEACHERS SHOULD BEGIN BY COMPORTING THEMSELVES APPROPRIATELY. START BY MEN WEARING COATS AND TIES AND LOOKING AND GROOMING AND ACTING LIKE COLLEGE EDUCATED PROFESSIONALS, AND FEMALES THE SAME WITH SKIRTS OR PANTS SUITS AND RE-ESTABLISH THE GULF BETWEEN TEACHERS AND STUDENTS AND QUIT TRYING TO BE A BUDDY!
