    What if everything in her personnel file indicates she was a good assistant principal and model citizen?

    Remove the emotional reasons because I can see those.

    I am just not sure that dismissing her would legally hold up in an appeal process.

    In some of the other cases you mentioned, those teachers were found GUILTY by a court of law. In this case, the prosecutor is on record of saying NO CRIME COMMITTED. Big, Big difference.

    This is what I hate about my profession. On one hand we call out for respect and consideration for our efforts. We want the community to hold us in high regard. From that vantage point, why is it so hard to not think some sense of responsibility and accountability be taken? It is not a legal question. Is it an accident, of course it is. That does not preclude doing the right thing going forward. This would be a distraction and how can that be what is in the interest of the school and kids? It is not. Please do the right thing and step aside. To think otherwise is just another example of self interest.

    I'll tell you how my system works - my kids come first and I think of them all the time. If she is such an idiot that she can't remember what she did with her child for an entire day, I'd say its negligent murder.

    But you're saying SHE has to prove that she is innocent?

    I can understand how a person can get overwhelmed at work and tasks at hand. I honestly have never gone one day without thinking of my kid's or spouse while at work. People need to learn to say the word "no" to request's that will stretch their already busy schedule. I hope this family will eventually find peace for their sake.

    Her advice to other working moms: “Stop trying to be perfect. Stop trying to do it all. I never said no to anybody – I just kept doing and doing and doing. Ask your husband for help. Ask your friends for help. Realize when you’re doing too much. Was I doing too much? I didn’t think I was. But I knew I was at the point of exhaustion.”


    Best advice from some who knows.

    I am a working mom, but have had the luxury of being part time. My husband always has traveled. My kids always came first (by both of us), without reprimand from work. I was very lucky. I was always the primary caretaker and I knew that. The kids were always first and foremost in my mind. The problem arises when both parents think their careers are first and someone else is in charge of their children.

    Careers are important, but when your children are young, you need to be more organized or agree to place one's spouse's priorities ahead of the others.

    This whole thing is so sad, but it is a tragic result of parents who are so involved with their careers that they forget what is truly important.

    You can' t bring home the bacon, fry it up in the pan.....etc etc.


    Let's all slow down and think about what is most important.

    I must admit that I've never been a big fan of the "I try too hard" apology.

    She said no to her child. Like no you don't mean as much to me as my job.

    She can't take care of her own child. I for sure do not want her taking care of someones children.
