statements from wrestlers stating that wrestlers likes to come over for team bonding before tournaments to watch films, play video games, ect. My termination was based off of me not having notes from parents prior to the events. Although I already had "verbal" consent and parents were the one calling and asking if I could host there child or asking if I could host there child. I am being terminated for having a heart and not turning my back on my wrestlers when they need me.
Many don't understand the demographics here and how 80% of the males are in a single parent household and are on reduced lunch. Often there was no way for the student to get to the tournament or get home. Therefore, with the relationship I have with the parents they were comfortable allowing me to drop there child off. The thing that really makes no sense is if I was doing something so wrong why would I be allowed to finish the season? Why would I be allowed to continue running a freestyle? Why is is that the vice principal told my volunteer coach accidentally that he should just get rid of the program? Then tried to clear up his statement. Then the same vice principal told a mutual friend he would do his best to get rid of me. This looks to be more than just a boundary invasion. This is personal. The fact that you are trying to terminate me and put a label on my personell file is absurd and a war is coming. You are not about to make my name look like something it's not. I have done nothing but positive things at lincoln high school. There is way more to the story but this is the gist of it. Many statements will be made. A newspaper article will be out at the end of the week. This is not fair and the right things will happen soon. I am a mentor, a coach, a friend, and have always been there for my wrestlers. Please take the time to make statements and to sign this petition. Share as much as you can. If you have encountered lincoln wrestlers or seen how they conduct themselves now since I have been coaching please make a statement.Thank you for your support.
