A new investigation is being launched into two former Spirit Creek Middle School educators.

The Georgia Professional Standards Commission, the agency responsible for certifying teachers, voted this morning to investigate former Principal Sharon McAlevy and former teacher Denise Ogden, said Gary Walker, the commission's deputy executive secretary and head of its educator ethics division.

Since October, the Richmond County school system has been conducting its own investigation of an alleged love triangle among school employees. The allegations were that staff members were having sex during school hours on campus last school year.

There is "No Story" here! Let the process take its course. Individuals have suffered enough as well as some who didn't ask for it. S.C. still has students and professionals that do not need any further embrassment.

The students and other

The students and other faculty at Spirir Creek Middle School need guidance from spirit filled Christians and people who can speak a word into their lives so that they can live. The parents of the students and the students themselves have gone through enough. Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruits thereof. Proverbs 18:21. I speak in the name of Jesus that everyone involved in this scandal get delivered and that God will get the glory out of it all. I want the principal and all others involved to know that I love them all and so does Jesus. Everything that happens at the rcboe is not reported to Professional Standards. I promise you that. There is MUCH that is swept under the rug. I tell you, there is nothind that is done in the dark that shall not be revealed in the light at the appointed time. We pray in the name of Jesus that these teachers, principals, and other staff find a peace that can only come from Jesus. Man look at the outward part but Jesus look at the heart. God has another plan for your lives and jesus still loves you in spite of your shortcomings. This too shall pass.Check out the upper room and you will find more.....

LOVE covers a multitude of

LOVE covers a multitude of sins. I tell you there is soon to become a day when beer, wine, prophesying, etc. shall be no more. Jesus is soon to come. The UPPER ROOM that I referred to in my aforementioned passage is the Pyramid of the RCBOE. It does not match Jesus UPPER ROOM AT ALL! Are there still many so called sex scandals that have yet to be reported? They, too shall be revealed. Thank you Hypiocrites for that winderful remark. Your character speaks for itself and I love you even more now. You can do nothing about the Agape'Love that I have for you and all of God's children. I thank God for his HOLY SPIRIT that dwells on tbe inside of me and tbhe Love for his people, even you. The word of man means nothing but WORD OF GOD ABIDES FOREVER! PSALM 118:8 Man is and has always been an unsafe example so I have learned to depend on and follow Jesus. The thief (your words) come to steal, kill, and to destroy but Jesus comes that you might have LIFE AND HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY. John 10:10, May your words turn back into your own bosom and change your spirit in the name of Jesus. Be Blessed and learn to speak life to any situation or hold your peace. Go and help those involved. SHOW LOVE

This is NOT a NEW

This is NOT a NEW investigation. It is the SAME ONE that the augusta chronicle continues to dredge up in the hopes of selling more papers and increasing the number of hits on it's website. Why condemn an entire school based on the alledged actions of a few? I seem to remember learning in Sunday school something that went like "judge not lest ye be judged"....some of ya'll need to listen to that....

I don't want anyone to feel

I don't want anyone to feel I'm against an investigation. I just feel that there is "No Story" here. I also feel beating this story into the ground will not effect the individuals accussed, but their kids and family members who did nothing. It is also a distraction to the students who are zoned for this school who should be focused on upcoming high stakes testing.

Coach, it is important that this investigation be conducted to ensure that progressive discipline, standards and ethics are ensured. This is for the students at Spirit Creek and the rest of the students and teachers in Georgia. Remember the investigation is being conducted by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission. They have a job to do. It may be a distraction, but this must be done.
