Congratulations!!

FINALLY, something good in the news! Great job, I don't live in Brunswick County but I sure am glad to see something positive in the news. Keep up the good work! It takes a special someone to teach kids now-a-days.

This so called good teacher

This so called good teacher is not what everyone claims she is. I remember having a dispute with her about my son, an A student at the time, about not having his work in on time and gave him a failing grade. Her story was he never turned in his work when other classmates saw my son place his final paperwork on her desk. After calling her, making it clear that others seen my son placing the work on her desk asking if she perhaps misplaced it somewhere among other items on her desk. She then iterated to me that it was too late anyhow if that was the case. He gets a 0. This hurt my sons final grade significantly and had to suffer the consequences of not being able to trust another teacher after this mishap. So call her what you wish, but in our eyes she will always be one evil piece of work. I am sure this will happen if not already to someone else.

We're Sorry

We forgot that you've never made a single mistake in your life. We apologize that you are perfect in every way, shape and form.

homework

So every other student turned their stuff in but, for noooo reason, this teacher suddenly conspired to give your son a zero? Did you see him turn this homework in? That's what I thought, neither did the teacher.

What a helicopter parent

Evil is a rather strong word for someone who have your kid a failing grade. Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, etc were evil. Some teacher whose story differed from your son's isn't "evil." You've apparently forgotten what it's like to young. I was a good student but when I did screw up, I too blamed everyone but me to keep from catching H-E double hockey sticks at home.

That's right blame the

That's right blame the teacher for your son not doing his work. I bet those same kids who saw your son put his paper on her desk are his friends. If it were turned in when it was supposed to be then it wouldn't have been lost. I recently read and interview with a nationally well known teacher that says it is the parents that are ruining education and causing good teachers to leave. I have to say I agree, some of my parent friends are totally out of control when dealing with thier kids teachers. Good for you Ms. Warren good luck.

Really? Um does the parents

Really? Um does the parents tell the teachers to sexually abuse the children, do the parents send their child off and have to worry about nothing while in the hands of these psychopaths and pedophiles? And no, they were not my son's friends who said this. It was at the open house that same teacher hosted for the project in question. They came to us and explained what happened with the teacher present. You don;t know anything about it so I suggest you keep your comments hidden unless you are Melissa herself trying to get some notoriety for something she's not!

Hmm, seems to me that you

Hmm, seems to me that you suffer from the affliction as Pageant Moms. Your child can do no wrong. Clearly someone here is lying, and I highly doubt that it is Melissa. She is honest to the bone and has the sort of integrity that has been long forgotten by the majority of the popuation. I think that YOU in fact do not know anything about it because you were not there and are trusting in children rather than reputable, intelligent professionals that are where they are because of the person that they are.
The sort of behavior that 'Guest100' has demonstrated in this forum will likely be passed down to their children, resulting in people with the same sort of mentality, burdening the world with whining and moaning. I hope that you realize how unproductive this is and choose to stop fighting senseless battles for your 'darling' child. You have no proof, you have no reputable source saying that it was turned in. You fail in this endeavor to smear a good persons name and achievements, much like your child did for not turning in their work.
