Several years ago I was a new teacher at Leon High that worked under Principal Rocky Hanna. My tenure was fantastic for the first year as I would receive a lot of attention from the staff, whom were very helpful to me as a new teacher and recent college graduate.
One day out of the blue it seemed like the Principal started to pay extra heed to my classroom, as he would stop in weekly to watch me teach an entire lesson.
At first I was under the impression that I might be doing something wrong, because no other teachers garnished the attention that I was getting from our Principal. After a few weeks of this I approached Mr. Hanna and asked him if everything was ok because he seemed to be paying extra close attention to my classroom.
His response is one that I will never forget. Mr. Hanna grabbed my hand, kissed it, and said that the way that I teach is unlike anything he had ever seen before. I was on the one hand completely flattered and on the other hand a bit creeped out...I mean kissing my hand, really?
The following week Rocky Hanna asked me if I was interested in having lunch with him, which I accepted. At lunch Rocky told me that he knew that I liked him, and that he could tell by the way that I looked at him that I had feelings for him! Say what!!!
I respectfully told Mr. Hanna that I was in a serious relationship with my boyfriend from high school and that we were to be engaged soon. The look in Rocky's eye was one of pure anger.
For the rest of the school year Mr. Hanna completely avoided me. It was night and day from his attitude prior to lunch.
At the end of the year I received a reassignment to another school in the area. I was quite disappointed because I loved Leon High.
I'm really upset with the school district and hope that I can receive some advice on this forum. Also I want other people to see this article.
The Tallahassee Democrat was first to break the news about another teacher that was harassed (worse than me) http://www.tallahassee.com/story/news/politics/2015/06/17/threat-lawsuit-reveals-school-investigations/28856503/.
Then Nik Richie of The Dirty released a story about other teachers that were harassed by Rocky Hanna:
Thank you for taking the time to read my complaint on Rocky Hanna and Leon High.
