I don't get how some jackwagons on here can be upset about a parent wanting educators to teach from an unbiased standpoint. If anyone has the right to indoctrinate the children, it's the parent, not their teachers. It also befuddles me that reading comprehension is so far below average on this site. I want the best teachers around for our children...not just mine, but yours, too. It's not too much to ask for a fair education system. These children are our future, and they deserve a*****of a lot more than they are currently getting. Parenting isn't supposed to be easy, and too many are expecting the teachers, coaches, and other authority figures to raise their kids. Some of you need to put as much focus into properly raising our youth as you do making asinine comments on here.

That's funny, FYY, because I'm not associated with a political party. If your intellect would allow you to read my statements, you'd see no hate. However, I can surmise by your post which side of the fence you lean on.

hey camper, what is wrong? Did you run out xanax or what? I did not ever say that I was the king of this forum, or the moderator of this forum. Just as you are entitled to your opinion, I am mine. Why do I feel like its my job, I am sorry I offended you, would you like to give me your personal email and I will run by anything I want to post on here and make sure it is alright with you or may I have my own opinion too. You need to take a chill pill and relax, it is just a forum. But that is just my "opinion".

It's not too late you are not the king of this forum. You are not in charge and joe has the right to his own opinion. This story was about new teacher and it concentratreted on woody since he had an long time job at Catholic . Then everyone had their opinions about the current principal of PHS who I have never met in my life. My point is you will have people that love one school hate another, like one teacher or principal ,others disagree. Why do you feel it's your job to try and ferret out why people feel that way or who they are or where they work? That is why people have screen names. And no I am very happy , just don't like camping .Thanks for all your posting ,but you are not the boss here, nor are you the moderator. Everyone can have their own opinion without checking with you.

Hey unhappy, you sound unhappy too, but just as i guessed, he was a new educator who works in the system with her, and as person who has posted here for some time, trust me, their are many here who disagree with my opinions. I would also guess that you have some type of friendship, working relationship, or other type of kinship with her as well as your snipe post would suggest. But for your info, I welcome all opinions as this is basically an opinion forum.

Joe, seriously, good luck with your new job, and I am glad you had a good experience with her, But I have had my own experience with her and have heard tale of many others. My experiences with her were not good and my experiences and many others have been turned into the BOE, you reap what you sow, hopefully for her she has done more good than bad, but I have had nothing but bad experiences dealing with this woman and so have so many other PHS parents. So in conclusion, I am not just running my mouth in regards to what i heard but have the backing of personal experiences with her, and personally hope that she "reaps what she sows".

Glad joe you spoke again because I was just able to speak up for you to itsnot to late, who insists by being a new poster you are also a pro catholic education person,and a close friend or relative of the current principal of PHS. It looks like unless you agree with him, your point of view Is not as valid as his.

RealityintheMOV quit spreading hate. Everybody has a right to choose whether to be a liberal, conservative, independent, or whatever else they may desire. Hateful comments really make me wonder about the morals your party represents. Good luck David Woody in your new endeavor.

It takes time to fix something as big as PHS. Sort of like this country! It can't be fixed over night. Now as far as Catholic goes. I think Catholic sounds like a great school! I have NOTHING against it. But, I'm sure it has its problems like every school does. Thats NORMAL! I am however a proud Alumni of PHS! Once a Big Red, Always a Big Red!

Actually I am new to the education system. I always read other peoples opinions because they are interesting to me. That is what is great about this country. However, I am not going to sit back and let someone downgrade someone that I admire and KNOW is trying her best/hardest at making PHS something great for its STUDENTS and STAFF. I was a student at PHS when she was Asst. Principal. No one in that office would help me with anything and I was told by former Principal Board that he didn't have time for me. Mrs. Goots got wind of my problem and she was there and helped me!I will NEVER forget that! I do not know her personally but I do know one thing! She cares for those kids and she is trying her hardest to make things great there again! It is not right for you to make comments like you did about her without really knowing what goes on behind closed doors! Yes you see things in the news but you should know that not every little thing you read and hear is true!

also, as far as MRS> GOOTZZZ, i would put money on it, but only time will tell. By the way, you can usually tell when someone has a personal agenda when they are new to posting on this site, I have been posting for several years, I don't remember seeing your screen name? Possibly a friend, neighbor, coworker, that is fine, she will need you soon as she starts her downward spiral due to her incompetence!

Hey joey, that would be you are biased, in favor of Catholic, which is your choice, but you shouldn't try to look unbiased when you are noticeably are. As far as being judgmental, to paraphrase, what are you teaching your kids, that is judgment.

Dave Woody is a great teacher. All 3 of my kids had him in class. As far as a public school educator sending their kids to Catholic, it is not necessarily a "slam" to public education. Catholic schools are permitted to offer and require things that public schools are simply not allowed to.

Itsnottolate where in my opinion did you get I was putting Catholic down? Oh yeah! I didn't! I have nothing against Catholic! As far as Mrs. Goots goes obviously you know NOTHING! I know she will be around for a long while! Oh and she is doing a GREAT JOB!!!! So where am I being judgmental?

CATHOLIC IS NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE PEOPLE TRUST ME. I WISH IT WAS, BECAUSE IF SO MY KIDS WOULD STILL BE THERE. BUT SINCE THE ADMINISTRATION HAS GONE DOWN, STARTING IN THE MAIN OFFICE, TO THE TEACHING STAFF MY CHILDREN ARE NOT. AND BECAUSE OF THE PROBLEMS IN THE MAIN OFFICE, THERE ARE ALOT OF GOOD TEACHERS LEAVING AS WELL AND THE WAY I SEE IT, ITS THEIR LOSS AND PUBLIC SCHOOLS GAIN. SO BEFORE YOU START RUNNING YOUR MOUTH, AND PUTTING PARKERSBURG CATHOLIC DOWN DO YOUR HOMEWORK PEOPLE. THERE IS MORE THAT HAS HAPPENED BEHIND THOSE DOORS THAN YOU KNOW. DON'T BE IGNORANT AND ASSUME THINGS BE SMART AND ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE YOU START RUMORS.

Hey Joe, the use of Ms. can refer to both a married woman and a single woman. Do you understand or do you need it broken down further? She will eventually be released from that job due to her incompetence, and that is not just my opinion but the opinion of many others also. As far as Catholic goes, we can obviously see that you are biased towards catholic and that is part of the point others are making regarding this teacher. They would like him to present courseware fair and unbiased. You should probably look in the mirror at your own ethics and moralities before you call into question others. Remember, do not be judgmental.

Folks, I'm not accusing him of anything. My first sentence was, "I don't know the man...". My point is that I HOPE he is the man you all have stated him to be. Chill out and read it over again. No accusations against him.

Mr. Woody is 59 years of age. He can teach 6 years to retirement and collect a decent check on state retirement.

Wow you people amaze me! What are you teaching your kids to act like calling this man names and everything else. Is it any wonder why students don't have any respect for ANYTHING anymore? And as far as MRS. not MS. Goots goes she is working really hard to get PHS back to what it used to be. It isn't something that can happen over night. Ralph Board ran that school into the ground and she is trying her best to make it great again. Something it hasn't been in a long time! To make things great again it takes time. That includes weeding out all of those worthless teachers at PHS! Oh and when her kids went to Catholic Mrs. Goots wasn't principal at that time! So people should really do their homework before running their mouths! Lets act like adults and set GOOD examples for these kids!

Reality, if the man wants a change from his Catholic roots, and wants to change to public school, that should be okay. Many people his age want a different job, but aren't ready to retire. Rather than retire, he wants to go elsewhere,this happens everyday, why would you think he's ready to teach with a political slant? Just wondering , if he was planning on teaching tea party politics and had a right wing conservative bent to his teaching , would that be to your liking? Any teacher that teaches social studies , government, and history has to mention all the parties , not the just the one you think is best.

Congrats to Coach Woody!! this man is a wonderful teacher and a great asset to PHS. The students will learn a great deal from him and they will enjoy his class. As for the people making the rude comments, you need to grow up and be an adult. Coach has a lot to offer, he will not preach for one political party, and your kids will learn more than you will know. so before you pass judgement, why dont you get to know Coach Woody first?
