My Two Cents: Teacher


My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – Well I see we’ve come to the end of another school year in Montgomery County.  As I follow all of my friends on social media who are teachers, I try to feel your sense of relief AND accomplishment. 

I’ve known you all my life.  I’ve seen you struggle.  I’ve seen you cry.  I’ve seen you angry.  But I’ve seen you celebrate.  I’ve seen you laugh.  I’ve seen you scream with joy.

I’ve seen you perform miracles, where miracles could never expect to happen.

Are large maximum class size laws giving your child a fair chance?


Students in a class roomAccording to the National Education Association, research shows that the ideal number of students in a class is 13 to 17. In Tennessee, class sizes are allowed as follows (data from the Tennessee Department of Education Web site): Kindergarten through third grade: average 20; maximum 25; fourth through sixth grade: average 25; maximum 30.

An investigation by Detective Demone Chestnut revealed that Jennifer and Jeremy Seadler provided alcoholic beverages to a 16 year old female juvenile, a former Northeast High School student, while playing a card game.  Jennifer Seadler was at one time the math teacher of the juvenile; this supports the fact that both adults knew the age of the juvenile.  The investigation uncovered there were  two other adults that the juvenile had never met who were also playing the game.  The juvenile did not play well during the game, therefore she had to take shots of Ciroc Vodka.  Shortly after consuming the alcohol, the juvenile became very sick and vomited.  The juvenile was sent home without being provided any medical attention. «Read the rest of this article»
