    May I ask why?

    I think j.man's posts are quite reasonable.

    No one in their right mind would openly discuss misappropriating funds, it's illegal and could get them arrested for heaven's sake.

    Same with time sheets. Leaving them lying around for others to read, makes zero sense, sorry.

    I work in law, and have worked in various work environments, I've witnessed a lot of shyt, but what you describe?

    I'm sorry but something is not jiving.

    In this instance I would surmise that the admin and principal are also dirty and she knows it. Thus they protect each other.

    Simply put are you willing to get the information you know to the local paper? They love doing investigative reporting on this type of corruption. Basically Karma needs help because if good people stand idly by and do nothing evil will flourish.

    There are people that complain and then there are people that try and right wrongs. Who are you?

    Even if you compile the information and provide it anonymously you have done something right?

    I know this is a tough and frustrating situation, but I'd also like to know why this hasn't been presented to the Board of Ed.

    Perhaps this teacher suffers from delusions of grandeur and has gotten comfortable with bragging and gets a thrill to be noticed because she believes no one has the courage to report her. I always wonder how people can live with themselves after doing something so wrong. Sociopath, without feelings?

    Who reported all of this to the administration? You? How do you know that nothing happened?

    Delusions of grandeur or not, bottom line it's a crime. Depending on where she lives, penalty is ten years in prison.

    If she is smart enough to embezzle the money which is another way of describing it, I highly doubt she is gonna be stupid enough to brag about it to co-workers.

    If admin knows and is doing nothing, then they are equally liable. And yeah who advised admin?

    Like I said, none of this is jiving.

    In any event, forget about karma, that's the least of your problems.

    This is an egregious act, it's illegal, breaks the educational code of ethics -- stop complaining and contact the board of education and or law enforcement, they will conduct an investigation.

    Being that it is a crime, and you are aware of it, if you don't report it, you're guilty of intentionally withholding evidence, and could face your own penalty.

    Think I'm kidding? Google it.

    Yeah, none of this makes sense. If this teacher has engaged in these actions (and thereís sufficient evidence to support these claims), I canít for the life of me understand why nothing has been done about it. Just doesnít add up. Canít help but wonder if itís office gossip spun out of control.

    I've just learned to expect it, that way I am not disappointed. Things in life are often unjust, unfair and lopsided. I used to let it bug me and then I realized I was just having a party for one in my head. So, I stopped and decided to keep my eyes on my own paper. Life is just a lot more peaceful that way. <shrug>

    I commute in Los Angeles to and from work. I get big eyes and huge reactions when I tell people this. `How do you do it?'

    Whenever I have the opportunity to be passenger in a car, I watch the drivers reactions. Upset, rage, frustration. That could be me if I let. But my reaction to other idiots behavior is a choice, so I choose to not react. It would take years off my life if I did. If I feel myself starting to get worked up, I simply mumble those three words `party for one'

    It reminds me that my reaction is choice and being upset about something unjust is only in my head. Besides, no one gets the benefit of my wrath, but me.

    So in when driving and situations like yours, I choose to keep my eyes on my own paper. Besides, does what she's doing directly effect your quality of life? If not, ignore it.

    JMO of course but I don't think it would be in her best interests to ignore that a fellow teacher is stealing money from the school, assuming she has solid proof. Which is what this teacher is essentially doing.

    If she doesn't have solid proof, then yeah ignore it -- it's most likely just a bunch of meaningless office gossip like milly suggested.

    Yes! Your claims donít make sense... if she was legitimately embezzling money why would she tell the whole world about it??

    Based on this, I donít think J Man is being rude to question then validity of your claims.... this is exactly how rumours and gossip end up destroying peopleís lives.

    The other side is that if you are aware of all of these behaviours and have the facts to back it up then you are responsible for bringing those forward... otherwise you are part of the problem.

    Last but not least... there have been times in my line of work where complaints about someone have been brought to my attention.... I thank the person that brought it forward and let them know I will look into it... I take them seriously and always investigate... without hard evidence there is nothing I can do though... and if there is hard evidence and an investigation is going on I am obligated to keep those details private.

    My point being it may seem like they are not doing anything but I would bet there is a lot happening that you arenít aware of OP... otherwise could you imagine how much trouble they would be in for just ignoring everything? As much or more than your colleague.
