Spot on and great humor to boot! Fun Facts: Last year I did something that I have never done in 35 years of education. I reached out to school board member Kim Fisher privately & invited her to lunch (my treat) to clear up misinformation she was sharing publicly concerning Dr. Finch, myself, and our lifestyle. At the time, her accusations were collusion with China, insider trading, and lover of pedophile teachers. Biscuits Cafe, 4-2-2022, private room, no other diners. I brought our estate plan and all our years taxes since moving to AZ. I shared intimate details of my life which included childhood sexual abuse. I am a survivor. Those experiences messed with my head for years throughout adolescence. My husband would never condone a pedophile or any sexual abuse of a child. If anything, he is hyper aware. Meeting was long-winded but I thought cordial for Mrs. Fisher. Fast forward 1.5 years to this week. Kim Fisher posted on social media that she secretly recorded that lunch. Not only did she secretly record our private conversation, but Mrs. Fisher has also offered transcripts and copies of the recording for anyone who would care to listen. THAT is the character of the vile personage that occupies a seat at the DVUSD table. *We ended up going Dutch.

It was probably hard for you to gather from the parents side being the district is lying about actually responding. Just like a broken bullying portal that all the schools direct you too but it doesn’t work. You can only know for sure with facts. Has the district proven they did? Can they prove the documentation by law that is required? The parents are out there because they are breaking policy and laws. District didn’t know the bully portal was even broken till the parents found out with no response. Most staff doesn’t even know where that portal take it. Do you think a parent would take it publicly if they truly were getting acknowledgment or progression on the issue?
