    Christina,
    In my opinion Yes. If I had children in LUSD I would be very concerned with the integrity of its leaders.
    I dont care how many degree's you hold, you add alcohol and people make very bad decisions or foggy decisions at the least As far as I am concerned that would make herunqualified in my opinion.
    Do your own investigation and come up with your own opinion. Would you let a Dr. operate on you if he/she were drunk?? I would think not.

    Betty,
    So it is your claim that Dawn Vetica is a drunk? Is that why you consider her unqualified? That would definitely make for a bad role model, indeed! But, she may otherwise be well-qualified for the job. I'd really like more details on this, as a parent of a child who will be going through the LUSD system.

    Jeff Tillett stated to Betty... Betty, you want us to listen to your opinions about education? Try learning to spell. *your, *too, *too, etc. I let moost slide... then stated... Also, as to the award Douglas, correct spelling, received, try reading the article.

    Clearly, Mr Tillett was suggesting that one should not listen to Betty's ideas and opinions simply because of technical errors. He then treats her with disrespect by stating she should read the article she had already read.

    Now Mr Tillet is talking about irony... humm... the term disingenuous comes to mind.
    You would think a professional educator would be more appreciative of various levels of education and encourage people to participate in forums to express opinion regardless of ability to articulate one's thoughts.

    So I presume you have never witnessed her falling off the barstool? Well, I have. I cannot beleive that LUSD would appoint her to the number two position for LUSD.
    She is a horrible example of what a School District should represent. Maybe a winery??

    Betty, I understand... but you do have to see the irony in it...

    Darrell, Thank's, he is a Teacher and knows no better. I am educated my laptop is having problems.
    It is typing double letters and some , not at all.
    I am a stickler on spelling,not so much in this forum. The "moost" he refers to is somthing my computer is doing on it's own!
    I was typing too fast and didnt look bfore I sent it. He is extremely Petty and so is Dawn. This is why I do not feel she should have been appointed Asst Sup.
    She is NOT a good role model and is NOT a good for LUSD.
    That's my opinion.
    Goodnite all

    Jeff...you are supposed to be an objective teacher. If you want people to believe you are objective, maybe you should stop quoting far left wing publications and media when making points on various threads.

    I did not appreciate the content of Ms Dean's posts,but her spelling is irrelevant in an opinion forum like this. This should be about a person's ideas,thoughts and perspectives.

    Unfortunately, you want to discredit her thoughts by pointing out technical errors. Sad that a teacher would consider that appropriate in a forum designed to encourage and foster community interaction by expressing opinions regardless of their level of education.

    Betty...thank you for expressing your opinion. I am not sure I agree with you, but I appreciate that you care to express what you think. Please ignore Jeff and post more of what you think.

    Josh, I was refering to Dawn's appointment. There are so many more qualified canidates within LUSD.
    Mr.Atterbury was appointed to the Adult School because of the budget.

    "She's kind of a 'Jaqueline of all trades.'" This is a true statement.

    Jeff, thanks for the English lesson. I am actually having problems with my keyboard.
    I do know my to, too's and two's. You must be a Teacher, I would presume?
    I cannot beleive that Bill would be happy where he is at because he was assigned there.
    I cant even comment about what the word on the street is, how she get promoted
    I will watch LUSD sink further and further.She is a waste.
    Her INTEGRITY level is ZERO. But hey, thanks for the English lesson!
    1) There are two swan's.
    2 ) Can I go to school Mommy?
    3) I want to go with you too.
    ;)

    Also, as to the award Douglas, correct spelling, received, try reading the article. As to Bill Atterberry, word on the street is that he didn't apply. I believe he is happy where he is.

    Josh, what award are you talking about to Douglass? Looks too me as if they added another high paid position with a LOW budget person.This position was held by Bill Atterbury, why didnt they put him back into his former position.
    Bob, I assure you I DO know her and she is horrible.The moost Unprofessional Employee within LUSD.

    Betty Dean,
    You obviously don't know a thing about Dawn Vetica. Perhaps you should do just a tad more research before you place labels on people you know nothing about.

    Betty, could you please explain. Are you talking about the appointment of Ms. Vetica or the award to Mr. Douglas?
