    This is a sick shame. I was a student of his. We all loved his class…but I seriously can’t say I’m shocked.

    Tunkhannock seems to be a haven for criminals in their school system. WTH, the principal of 2 elem. schools can get 2 DUI’s and keep his job, why not ? There is so much going on that we don’t know as well, cover ups everywhere
