I feel I must share this awful bit of info. thiss morning . I  am  sure that a mandatory drug test  for the teachers aides /special care aides would show one dirty test for sure. Without naming this male half hispanic,half caucasion in his early thirties . I am concerned  for the safety of the children.This person has a violent tendacy and is extremely emotional. He uses Marijuana illegally every morning. Also , gives private lessons  to children out of his home where he smokes and stores his illegal drugs.Working for the school district off + on for some time .How he has gotten by thus far is frightening and unjust  .Please beware that we are taking this to the the top.Sorry to have to share this info. Im sure we all agree that Our Children Come First . Thank you .
