A Principal Defends His Behavior

Dear Source:
I am sorry that Dee Lappy has problems with the response made to Mrs. Graham's letter. However, Mrs. Graham was the one who brought private matters to a public forum and begged for responses. She also confused students' issues and her private gripe with the Department of Education.
Dee's assumptions are interesting. I do not live in the office. Neither do I spend long periods on the playground anymore. But I do take a sobered look at life. When someone, be it Mrs. Graham or Ms. Lappy, puts a personal matter in the public arena and involves my school, I do not see what is unprofessional about my attempting to clarify the matters related to my school.
Maybe Dee did not read the letter to which I responded. And if she did, maybe she ought to try placing herself in my "moccasins," after reading Mrs. Grahams' letter. From the office I demanded and worked to ensure that Mrs. Graham had positive experiences at this school.
