Mr. Jacinto Ramos, what are you teaching your youth followers?

Friends:

We have discussed many of the dinosaurs that have stood in the way of progress on the board and a year after the last election, we need to also ask how the new blood is impacting the district.

Mr. Ramos, District 1, beat an incumbent who was only in it for himself and the district was hungry for something new.  His followers know him from his roots on the North Side area and for the work he does for youth.  Like them, many in the district put forth their hope that change would come or at least another voice for the people would emerge so that the status quo was no more.

Quotes and accolades are thrown around about the greatness of one person's influence on another.  While that influence is sincere, the message can get lost when actions taken in other instances do not match.  We speak about actions that are not being taken on the board, being that voice to question why things are they way they are and not a rubber stamp just so that the group looks good.

It's time that what is being taught about being a voice for others begins to take shape now before the district goes further down in disgrace.  Your followers glorified you to a degree because of what you are capable of doing and somehow that spark has faded.  Making alliances are great but only when they benefit the mass and not a particular group over another.  The quest at hand is to make a difference even when you are the only one standing.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” 
― Martin Luther King Jr.

We hope that when this is quoted within many of the youth gatherings that it is intentional because that's how it looks at this point.  Silence is a virtue at times but not when the lives of thousands of students and staff are at stake.  Not when the premise of change embodied in your campaign benefits one side.  Communication is a big point that we hear you teach the youth you serve and we are hungry for the same.

We hope words become action soon.

    We voted you in because we need represented not same crap Carlos gave us. You need to stand up and do the right thing about Mr. Palazzolo now. He was willing to go back to work last year but the Board changed there mind. You need to stop listening to that white fool of an attorney and do what is right. Pay up on this lawsuit and end these games!

  2. Mr. Ramos, you have not lived up to your campaign promises! We are waiting to see you take the bull by the horns, especially as they continue to make a mockery of our district. Your voice is not just used to make a difference in the lives of your Northside HS kids, but ALL of our kids in this district. You can make a difference if you show up when you are supposed to and VOTE to make a positive difference. You, Ashley and Avila knew what you were getting into, when you decided to run and consequently got voted in. Don't forget, Cinto, that you were just a probation officer before you got to be trustee. Don't let it go to your head, b/c your constituents are watching! Your alliance with Dansby was something we can all forgive, but if you are being bullied to stay away and not vote, you need To SPEAK UP! End this madness now, especially the Palazzolo case! Now, millions are going back to the state, millions spent on useless technology, kick backs, etc. Don't turn a blind eye and do the right thing. While you are at it, you need to convince the others it's time to move forward!

  3. Mr. Ramos it is time for you to attend a meeting (you've missed many) and actually stand up to end all of this corruption and repeated embarrassment of FWISD by Needham and her buddy Norm Robbins. Several people have now written to the FBI and/or Eric Holder asking for an investigation into the practices of the FWISD School Board. Why are you not standing up? Being absent will not protect you - it makes you part of the problem. Are you or other Board Members aware of how attorney Brandt and his Firm threatened Ann Sutherland at the Palazzolo trial? Threatened Palazzolo witnesses with termination? Allegedly coached Vasquez to avoid process servers in return for a job? Coached Robbins and Ray to the point where their testimony was obviously rehearsed - and untrue? This has got to stop and that is why we voted/supported you. Dansby was a fall guy for Needham. She has to be stopped. Speak up and end discrimination, retaliation and workplace bullying in FWISD. It starts with ending the Palazzolo case. The Community is watching you and expects you to act.

    Mr. Ramos; consider the three Soccer players at Arlington Heights you helped. Judy Needham did nothing to help them. The Coach who fought for them (Mr. Chad Whitt) was disciplined by the Principal and threatened after he began helping them. It is called retaliation and contrary to what Norm Robbins says, it is alive and well in FWISD. Whitt had to file a grievance to stop the bullying. You did nothing to help him even though you KNEW that Coach saved those students from what was strictly a racial decision by that same Principal. Did you also know Mr. Ramos who Mr. Whitt called first for help? Mr. Palazzolo. It was Palazzolo who called others in the community for help and support and urged them to contact you. You are asleep on the job. You are making the same mistake Vasquez, Rangel, and Dansby have made. You are playing along with Needham. And just as she did with them, she will spit you out and throw you to the curb when she is finished. DO SOMETHING! That is why you were elected. Help clean up the mess Needham has created. End the unjust suffering of Palazzol and his family now. End racism, bullying and retaliation in FWISD. Stop listening to Needham and her slimy attorney Brandt. Teachers, students and parents are watching you.

  5. In my opinion....Arlington Heights is a school represented by Judy Needum. I hope that people do not intend to play the "RACE" card every time. We need to start holding board members accountable for what happens in their schools and not start pitting them against each other. They cannot make changes unless they are informed. Bring up a new argument, those are getting old. Instead of attacking people, get involved or better yet....take a stand and show some people how it's done. If you have the nerve to write it SIGN IT!

    Not sure what your comment meant to say or why it was posted as "Guest" then again with your name. If we were not afraid of being fired, or disciplined like Chad, or replaced by an uncertified friend of Needham's who sits around all day doing nothing, we would sign our names. Yes AHHS is Needham's school and it is a mess. If white and "affluent" you have protector. You can deal drugs, bring weapons to school, cut class, show up drunk at events. If not, you are screwed. Is that clear enough for you? It hasn't changed. It's not the race card, it is FACT.
    Cinto was elected to the Board to help clean this mess up because Needham had gotten to Vasquez. We're calling him out to start doing his job.

    My point is that he is on the Board and needs to show up and start voting with children, employees and parents in mind - not the wishes of Judy Needham. He is a good man. We want him to show it.

  9. The guest was because I went back to sign in with my facebook and I did not know it posted on the other window. I also spelled Judy's name wrong and tried to correct it. I did not change anything else in my comment. What is clear to me is....CInto was elected by his community to represent them on the school board. Ask the principals in his area if he has done his job. Just because he can speak Spanish, he should not be the only one fighting for change. He should not be used to clean up the crap that others have left him to deal with. Instead of throwing all these felony offenses out...CALL THE POLICE. If you are afraid, start documenting and have supporting evidence like a POLICE REPORT to back you up. Hiding is not healthy. You start sounding paranoid and people tend not to believe your accusations. If you are not going to sign your name to your comments directed at me or have more to say, text me at 817-504-4695...Because I will not be by a computer. Headed out to our volunteer orientation at La Grave Field, join us!

  13. You are so critical of a man that is trying to fix the system from within. I'm someone he has invested in a lot. Check with the coach at AHHS. He will tell you. Cinto told the coach he was there for him if he had problems. Calling him out from the shadows is enough to convince many you are scared or bitter. Either way, grow up. He has not sold his soul and is probably the only one fighting for kids first, adults second. Call the man. He is probably the most accessible board member. He is on the phone with teachers and families from outside of his district daily. Don't beat up on the man that is fighting for you. Remember that he is only 1 of 9 votes. Do the math. Call him 817-941-8328. It's public info. Call and see how he responds.

    As for the post about he was "just a probation officer" that is insulting to those of us that have been in the streets for decades if you imply he hadn't been saving souls or changing systems long before this opportunity. But as he tells many of us in the CommUNITY, ask before you assume.

  14. I disliked Vasquez and I'm glad he is gone, but I dislike a liar more, one who deliberately throws people out, without warning, of his rental house on the Northside, only to be able to qualify to run for the board position. He did not live in the Northside and help the Latino community, until he had to move back! You can praise him until the cows come home, but the reality of it is that he is paying more attention to his compadres than anyone else. His alliance to Dansby is unfathomable, since Dansby is so corrupt. I like Cinto, but I don't like who he has become. Has anyone asked Cinto why he moved away from the Northside and went to Nolan HS, a private and expensive HS? Not much raza there. I might've over estimated him and making a true difference on the board. He has just turned away, when the issues were important enough, like ending the Palazzolo fiasco, voting "yes" for the bogus budget, etc. He follows the status quo, as in afraid of standing up to Judy Needham. His positive presence could've influenced others on the board to stand up and speak for what is right, not just continue the lies on the board. I applaud him for reaching out to teens and helping them stay the course. However, we voted him into a political position with tough issues, not as a camp counselor!

  17. Actually, he moved back to send his son to Northside High because he had been working with Martinez. He believes in Martinez and had faith enough to trust that principal with his own sons. He worked with the neighborhood gangs for over 10 years. He has always worked his juvi caseload in Northside as a community coordinator. His ability to connect with youth makes him a huge asset for our neighborhood. Are you serious? Check your facts or call him as Get Real suggests. I personally know he missed 2 "scheduled" meetings. One due to his son having surgery in November and the other for camp where he is the director. He changes lives. What do you do other than lie and try to bring down a positive man. He promotes unity and love.

    ReplyDelete
  18. No one is questioning Cinto's dedication to youth in the commUNITY! His position is a TRUSTEE, as in WE TRUST YE to fight for ALL, by voting for change, not going along with the powers that have failed this district year after year! We want him to do his damn job on the board! What he does on his own time with the kids in his community is his business, but while he is on the board, we expect him to make some noise, even if he is the odd man out. Like I said before, he obviously has a way with people and he should use that to his advantage and make certain board members stop vilifying another human being for the sake of pride! The initial issue with the Palazzolo trial was not on his watch, but he has had over a year to catch up and stand up and say this is bullshit! If he believes in helping kids and parents, he should believe in helping all! He received financial backing and support to help make a positive change in the board for our district as a whole! We have not seen this happen in many cases, not just the Palazzolo issue. Our district has received more black eyes (that the public has been privy to through limited media coverage) this year alone. There are many other things you supporters don't know is happening, because you are content in your own little world, as long as you and or your kids are going on long trips. The truth of the matter is, you wanted to play with the big dogs. DON'T walk away when the BIG DOGS bite!!!

  24. The dialogue here is great, hearing the different opinions that abound about an someone that is well respected within the community or at least it appears that way. Let's separate what he does for a living and focus on what he does as an elected leader of the FWISD. Yes we did question what he is teaching because some of the youth or most of the youth are FWISD students who are also impacted by decisions. There is no question of the passion to help and do for the community as the District 2 and that would be great all around if the pie were cut equally every time. Let's take the bond program, deals were made to benefit each district and in order to garner support those deals were made with Dansby. So at that time it looked like principles were not on the table. The tough votes came and left and we are worse than before.


    There are many stories that are being mentioned from both sides about how they know the person. Sources that can confirm either side and we all have our past. That past is questioned when virtues are being thrown as if the individual is invincible because of particular deeds that are done. Remember that you represent FWISD and the decisions affect everyone. If decisions that have been made thus far have impacted everyone positively, we would like to see that. Show what has been done for FWISD, let's be transparent, let's step up and be that person. Remember again that the greats did not create or advance a cause by being silent, they took action. Greatness is earned!

    Obviously many of you are Palazzolo fans. That thing was long decided before the rookies got in. Those millions came at the fault of adults that weren't thinking of our children. It's unfair to think Mr. Ramos can undo that mess. Hold the others accountable that created that madness.

    Mr. Ramos has been helping many educators including myself that are being bullied. He is more savvy than you give him credit for. It's not fair to ask him to be something he is not. He is not a militant. He is a bridge builder. Your militants claimed to be about the kids but we saw they were self serving. My money is on him. He is not a politician. He is a genuine community leader.

    I too questioned his loyalty to Dansby. After seeing how District 1 (not 2) has benefitted in year one I am thinking he knew what he was doing. He got an ADA ramp at Elder when Vasquez did nothing. He fixed up Sabine for the kids & is our strongest advocate for PTA's. It's a fact he has pressured the district to get serious about parent engagement. I wonder why? Oh, because he's a parent! I like this guy. Focus your anger and bitterness elsewhere.

  28. I call bullshit on this so-called "Supportive Educator" even though I'm sure Vasquez is enjoying all of this. If you were, unlike the others here who fear retaliation for their comments, you would have no problem identifying yourself. Cinto has not once voted against the pack mentality except with Dansby. Those of us who work here still wonder why and feel betrayed. Dansby was the ultimate in corruption, patronage, nepotism and racism. He betrayed the children, employees and educators - unless you were one of his buddies who got those special overtime checks he personally approved each pay period. He is a liar and Cinto supported him. Working from the inside to reform FWISD? you're fooling yourself. FWISD is in fact corrupting you. Same thing happened to Vasquez. He gave employees throughout the District hope until Needham schmoozed him and played to his ego. Then at the right moment, she slapped him down and kicked him to the curb. FWISD is in decline. It is run by corrupt individuals from Linares on down. We still can't believe she was brought back - or that Ray is STILL there - or that Johnson, Sorum, Davie, Monge, Breed, Menchaca or the rest are still there. We don't need silence and bowing to Needham or her latest front man Robbins. We need someone to stand up. THAT is why you beat Carlos. It was because employees hoped new blood would lead to change. Instead, you are thus far as bad as J.R. Martinez was - never around for critical votes. There is too much to be done as evidenced by the budget and admission of the $39 mil to TEA to be "taking vacations". Just a hint: there are more deficits in the millions which Robbins and Needham have yet to disclose. Now magnify the criticism you have received here ten fold and BEGIN to understand what Palazzolo and others have been subjected to. All without merit and all to satisfy a bitter old woman. Grow a set and stand up. End the inquisition of employees. There are millions more which could be reported if we were not in fear.

  29. Mr. Ramos. I am sorry you have had to have your eyes opened in such an abrupt manner. You and the others have sat back following the advise of bitter, old people who have no children on our schools and are addicted to power. You have continued to listen to an unethical attorney who has given FWISD BAD advise for four years. His Firm participated in threatening employees with termination or arrest; he threatened a Board Member who was about to testify - at trial. He was part of directing Vasquez to avoid process servers; he advised the Board to settle with Palazzol a year ago, then advised the Board to go back on that agreement. Do you really think the kids of FWISD are not watching? Time to step up and end all this craziness.

  30. Clearly many of you do not understand politics It would be great if every step in the Political arena could be made altruistically, but that did work in ancient times and certainly will not work now. It’s good to see the cowardice many of you hide behind is alive and well in the Fort Worth ISD. Jacinto has done more for the Youth in Fort Worth than what most people would do for their own children . The System (Fort Worth ISD) as it exist today is not perfect but fortunately we are nothing like our counterpart in the East(DISD). We get one Latino with dreams and some ground swell behind him and over time he will move mountains but this isn’t happening over night and for those of you who think so I have two words… “Eres Pendejo,”


    FYI,

  33. In many of these comments I continue to see a common denominator. That would be Judy Needham and how corrupt she is. My question then is, why is she still on the board, what are YOU doing to vote her out, why don't YOU run against her? Instead of making such an effort to divide, why don't YOU join the fight and roll up your sleeves and come help change lives? Its easy to sit back and type up a post on the computer, while sitting in the ac, rather than coming out and working long hours, to change lives. Cinto has helped many of us change our lives, he has believed in us even when we did not believe in ourselves and most importantly he believes in his/our commUNITY. So to end this, I challenge YOU to come out and instead of trying to tear the commUNITY apart, come out and join the fight.

    "Real Teacher" as to imply I'm not one. Really? I'm not a Palazzolo insider but I know my job and my students. What should Mr. Ramos have voted against in particular. I've watched the board meetings and haven't seen anything he should have done differently. Like I said, even with Dansby I could see the bigger picture. I went through his social media and saw he was on a vacation trip with his church group and his family. This last meeting was an emergency meeting because of the 39 million. Is he supposed to be by the phone waiting on 5 years worth of screw ups? Why not call out the other members. They have missed meetings too. More than the two described. Other board members leave early. I don't see them at the end of the meeting on camera. They obviously left early. Call them out. I'm with him. I'm a real teacher. Like JP said, do something. Quit your nagging. Be a real teacher and make a difference in the classroom.

  35. Obviously you haven't read the comments here or in the new story On FWISD and Rev. Tatum in the Fort Worth Weekly. We have been LEADING the fight. We have gone to every news organization in the state; met with Staffers from several politicians; written the FBI, Dept. of Justice, Dept of Education, filed formal complaints. People are either "bought off" - as many allege is happening to Cinto - or are retaliated against. The complaint disappears. you need to read some background on FWISD starting with TOCCO. Needham was also part of that but "for some reason" survived. Funny how you guys are getting all defensive. How do you think Palazzolo and the other Teachers and Coaches have felt as victims of worse? Cinto is now in a position to HELP end these abusive practices by the Board BUT HASN'T. It is time to start. Do you realize employees have been assaulted and raped on our campuses yet were BLAMED when they reported it to the Board and filed grievances? Wake up. Gonzalez, Salinas, Tennyson, two employees have died fighting this injustice another currently is battling cancer.

  37. There is no question about what Mr. Ramos does for the youth. We have said plainly that we believe it is sincere. At the same time when there is no communication out then no one knows if, like many say, he is doing things, we don't know. No one speaks out about anything, they think that a vote is it and you owe nothing after that. We don't expect him to change an entire system but we expect him to try. We all know he made deals to better his district and Dansby delivered but he had to give back to him and that's what affects the rest of the district. You are either in or out but you can't be in between. All we ask is for him to deliver on what he stands for and at this point, we are waiting to see it. Sutherland seems to have more guts than anyone as crazy as it may seem.

  38. That is complete hypocrisy are you an employee of the ISD? Issues are rarely black and white and as I’m sure you’re an adult I find it hard to believe you have not experienced this phenomena. I feel bad you don’t understand politics if you’re looking for a tea party/ kamikaze Board member then look in the mirror and put yourself in the position where people will want you to represent them.

    If things seem too gray then you are indecisive. Take a stand and stand for it. We don't know what he stands for anymore. We don't know if he really understand what it is to serve. The district cannot move forward until all the issues now are buried and done. The vote is simple vote to end the appeal.. clean house in administration.. the facts are there, the evidence is there and yet nothing. We don't have to be part of the ISD to know, many have lived and continue to live it.

My guess is you are probably still smoking weed, on your lazy ass doing nothing, but complaining about your past coach! Another guess is if you were calling Palazzolo a "slime", he must've disciplined your ass once or twice for you to send him and Chad to "hell". Maybe you are already there and need company?

  45. The difference between confidence and cockiness is preparation. For many, many years (well before he decided to run for school board) Cinto has been working diligently to empower/build commUNITY minded individuals, organizations, and institutions. As one of the students he has empowered, I know that he has not abandoned any of the commitments he made to himself and mentioned at the time of his election. In the grand scheme of political rhetoric, it's unfortunate that a person's ideas and philosophy (which outside of politics are powerful windows into a person's character) are attacked and criticized as stalling because they require components outside of oneself. At this time, nonetheless, the team is setting the groundwork and preparing for the future which is one that requires us being in it for the long haul.

    Therefore, I feel the spark has not faded. Those who understood the mission from the beginning are still working along side him and other community leaders at the grassroots level. Those who feel the motivation was simply a "spark" are mistaken. This is actually better represented as a flame; the "spark" that initiated this journey began many years ago and will continue to grow.

  46. Reply to Miguel (and anyone else supporting Cinto's Actions) I too thought Cinto was a good man that was why I supported him over crook Vasquez. Then I began to wonder why he was voting the way he was. Why he would not speak out. I began to hear things about the renters he evicted, about Claudia who was hired right after his election. I noticed how he began to change. He does things now only if the make him look goof. He got in with Dansby who was desperately looking for allies with Vasquez gone. Cinto is not the same man I supported. Look at yesterdays vote on Tatum. He votes with Needham and Robbins. Cinto needs to look to the welfare of children not what these fools who are promising him for a political future. Look at Vasquez, Dansby and now Tatum. They will use you and then throw you away. Tatum used children but so did FWISD. The children should have been paid weeks ago without all this drama. Yesterday was to make the Board look good. It didn't. You looked like a sheep. The only people on the Board with cajones were the two women who voted "NO".

    Miguel, we hope you are right. We are just wanting to hear more of what is happening if in fact the spark or the flame is there. The votes and actions thus far have not shown that he is in it for us. His inner circle has commented that he will only serve one term and that his goal is to build his own training company or the like and move on. We are not tying his building of his community to this but what his job as a board member and keeping his promises. WE expect to at least see effort even if everyone else on the board does not support him. We can be in it for the long haul but don't just drag us, walk with us, do the things that made people believe in him.

  49. Yeah. She's just like you. A victim of bullying from a racist Tarrant County and highly respected by many of us. Jacinto is on many Latino and Black's reference sheets. Why? Because he is well known and respected for his years of work in the minority community. She is not the only one to name him as a professional reference. He is promoting FWISD as the place to be. He is recruiting at the universities too. Ask Sergio at Kirkpatrick. Who would have thunk it. Trying to bring talent to our classrooms. Geeez. He is the best shining star we have. He is Mexican and one of us. Wonder what you would be saying if he wasn't. I know several of you probably include Raul Duran, Aracely Chavez, Sharon Herrera, etc. All Palazollo followers. Quit trying to have him save your boy palazo. That's not his job. Since you think Judy has all the power let's get her to end it and take care of your beloved Payaso.

  50. Pray for our hermano. Satan is attacking him by way of his own people. May God protect him and his family.

  51. This "HCM Insider" comment is a joke. Almost as big a joke as HCM. How defensive you become when people begin to ask questions. Maybe now you know how PALAZZOLO felt. HCM, OPS, outside Accounting Firms, everyone Needham could muster crawled through his life going back almost 30 years if I remember the trial. Robert Ray is still hanging around because he directed the witch hunt - even paying one "investigator" (his "godson" - with a small g) $10,000 for his trouble and they were wrong. They slandered and twisted everything about him and Aracely, and Raul (who unfortunately all had the same worthless attorney at first), and many, many, other employees. Cinto was given the evidence, many who voted and WORKED for him testified for Palazzolo or would have if there had been more time. What does Cinto do? He sits there and votes the way he is told. He supports Dansby because Dansby gave "Claudia" a job. Obviously he can watch others suffer but can't take the heat himself. I have no first hand knowledge of "Claudia" but I have heard the same rumors you obviously have. Her hiring was at best suspicious. Cinto needs to get off his backside and start earning the trust we placed in him. I for one am not impressed. He voted with the pack (who you obviously work for and support). I do agree with you on one point: Judy Needham started all of this five years ago and very well could end it all. So why doesn't she? TASB has no legal right to dictate the Board take any course of action. These attorneys threated FWISD employees with termination - one immediately after he testified. And how can they represent Dansby when they themselves will be called as witnesses? Explain the ethics behind that. Cinto needs to start thinking for himself and our students. Not the empty promises of Needham. Just ask Carlos.

  52. For the record I know Aracely is worthless. She has personally passed up so many Hispanics because she is about herself. She is always "recruiting" Hispanics but doesn't follow up with them. Vasquez saved her but her guardians are long gone. Raul is a militant, angry, bitter nut job with a hard on for Dansby. I go way back with this crazy guy. Dansby never took to him so he got his feelings hurt. Why is he still angry? He got his wish. Bye bye Dansby. And by the way it happened because his sweetheart Judy masterminded the whole thing. I bet she gets a stack of tamales from him for her birthday. Sharon is a horrible person with no loyalty. She burned me. Speaking from experience. She claims to be about the employees but listen to her. It's about her. She is cinto's friend (Or so she says) that talks behind his back. I would say he needs to watch himself. She needs to go. Snakes have entered his camp. I'm liking this group. Please name others that are commenting. I'll get you the info and why they are bashing the kid. I don't really know cinto or care one way or another But I'm glad he is generating interest. Clean up HCM Start with Aracely. Our district has so much dead weight!

  53. Funny reading the comments of his defenders. Let's watch tonight and see if he votes as he is told by Needham ad Robbins or is his own man. I don't know if he cheated on his wife with a co-worker; fathered a child with her; or got her a job now with FWISD. I don't know her name. I do know he has participated in persecuting employees because he voted the way he was told. He did not protest Linares; he has not spoken out on the fraud and waste; he has not helped clean up the mess. So far, he is no better than Carlos. At least with Vasquez, when he was sober and motivated, he was a leader. Greed and arrogance were his undoing and the same is happening to Cinto. He has been doing as he is told. This is not who I thought I was supporting. You need to challenge what is being fed to you. Robbins is a liar and a puppet. He is part of the corruption. $39 million should be enough to bring in the Feds. Tired of watching you sit there (when you show up) and just go along.

  54. Wow, Super Spy or HCM Insider or Dr. Diaz, you are filled with piss and vinegar, huh? Answer one question: Were you ever thrown into the bullying pit? Probably not, since you were the bully! Were you ever retaliated against? Probably not, b/c you did the retaliating! You say all these things about these people, but you have never once taken a good hard look at yourself! You honestly don't know what has transpired with all these people or what their story is. If one of these people "burned you", it was probably because they got tired of you doing the same. Ah, casting stones are we? How bravado of you to say "Please name others that are commenting. I'll get you the info and why they are bashing the kid." Will you be pulling "info" out of your ass as usual or will it have substance? If you do know everything about everyone, why don't YOU come out from behind your pseudonym, so others can call you on the carpet for your despicable, unethical, unprofessional and bullying ways! You said Sharon was "all about herself"? I feel you probably think you recognize this in others, because you are the same! And were you jealous that Dansby didn't have a "hard on" for you? I think, yes! All three, including Palazzolo have gone through more than you will ever understand! Your moral turpitude, however, is uncannily obvious! Blast all you want, baby, b/c the bottom line is, you are an epic fail! A word of advice from Confucius: "If you are on a journey of revenge, you'd better dig two graves."!

  55. Actually. the clean up needs to start with Ray, Sorum, Breed, Menchaca, Kaufman, Davie and the 192+ retire/rehires

  56. I think Cinto and all of his blind supporters need to realize that if he were held to the same standard Palazzolo and the others were held to, he would be fired FIRST - in spite of facts and testimony - and then have to fight to retake his position. Yet there he sits - passing judgment on Teachers with his silence.
