> Don....I received your emails. Sorry, I didn't respond earlier but I have been out of the country. Don't look for me in Central Oregon. I am half a world away. I don't live the kind of life that you think I do, the car you refer to is long gone and never was a part of me. I rarely do work for leslieconsulting and it is usually things I can do from a distance such as editing work. After 31 years in the public, I just don't enjoy it anymore. I will be in the state and in Portland from Sept 23-29, at least that is what I am firming up with family. I can meet with you during that time and would welcome a direct meeting with you. I have no ill will against you, never did. Sometimes some awful duties and assignments came with my former job. They were not of my making. Anyway, I hope we can meet. If you let me know soon when you are available, I'll work around other plans. What place would be convenient for you?

Beaverton will replace Westview principal
A retiree fills the job temporarily after Malcolm Dennis unexpectedly resigns
Friday, November 12, 2004 by ANITHA REDDY Oregonian

BEAVERTON -- Beaverton School District administrators will begin a search in January to replace Westview High School Principal Malcolm Dennis, who unexpectedly resigned late last month.
Gail VanGorder, a retired vice principal at the 2,300-student school, came out of retirement last week to serve as Dennis' temporary replacement.
With Dennis' departure, the Beaverton School District has first-year principals leading six of its seven high schools. Carl Mead, Sunset High School principal, is in his second year at the school.
Dennis, who cited health reasons when he left the school Oct. 27, could not be reached for comment.
Maureen Wheeler, a district spokeswoman, offered no specifics concerning his departure.
Students learned of Dennis' resignation from administrators at a special assembly Oct. 28.
VanGorder said Superintendent Jerry Colonna offered her the interim job on Oct. 27. VanGorder retired in July after nine years as vice principal at Westview, the state's second-largest high school.
VanGorder, who began at the school Nov. 3, said she was surprised and excited by the opportunity.
"I've always felt very close to the Westview community, so it's not hard for me to return there," she said.
She has been working hard to get to know the school's 25 new teachers and learn the faces of hundreds of freshmen.
A principal could be hired midyear, but contracts typically take effect July 1. Desirable candidates may not want to leave their jobs before the end of the school year, Wheeler said.
VanGorder said she hasn't ruled out staying on permanently.
"That's a possibility, but it's way too early for me to tell," she said. "I do know Mr. Colonna is committed to moving forward with a comprehensive search."
The 58-year-old educator began her career in the Beaverton district as a library aide at Meadow Park Middle School. She worked as a librarian at Beaverton schools for two decades before taking her first administrative position as a vice principal at Merlo High School in 1993, the year it opened.
She moved to Westview as a vice principal in 1995.

BORQUIST'S SWORN TESTIMONY Fair Dismissal Appeals Board hearing 
JUNE 2004: 
Q. Do you have contact with the Beaverton Education Association as you work with various personnel problems? 
A(Borquist). Uh-huh. I think we probably are a little bit unique in how we work with our association. The person who is the administrator of certificated personnel, which is a job I have also held in the past, and I meet usually twice a month and go over any kind of what we call "issues sessions." We look at, you know, things that have been brought to either of our attentions, and we go through and have an open discussion about what we're hearing or seeing. The hope is that we would, again, resolve it at the smallest level. We are very frank with each other. We don't really hold any secrets or hold any information back. But we try to proactively work together. We've operated that 
(begin pg 47 FDAB transcript) 
way for at least 12, maybe 15 years, ever since I can kind of remember with, you know, past association presidents. It is a culture that we have built. Because of that we have very, very few grievances. I can maybe think of three in my ten years in -- 12 years in HR. You know, I've never sat before this kind of a board before with a Fair Dismissal hearing. We're actively working together. Obviously they have a role of representing in this case a teacher, and we have a role that we need to play. But we try and work cooperatively. When I have a meeting that I'm going to be setting up with a teacher, I give what I would call a heads-up phone call to the association president or the Uniserv rep saying that this person will be expecting a call from X because they'll probably be calling you.


B.E.A.-trayal; When I needed the union I paid into...











My union representatives in Beaverton. Sigh. Standing to the right of retiring uniserve Tom Husted (bedecked in leis) is Hanna Vaandering, former BSD elementary PE teacher and BEA president, now OEA VP and OEIB member.

Husted was Beaverton's OEA representative during the tenure of former superintendent Yvonne Katz and simultaneously served on the board of the Beaverton Education Foundation, a fundraising enterprise that grew rapidly under Katz and former BEF executive director Janet Hogue.

Ms. Hogue, a former neighbor of BSD HR director Hollis Lekas (outgoing COSA president) shared an office with the BSD HR department while Husted was representing Beaverton's teachers.


OEA Legal: Lawyers Gettin' Rich in Public Education









Rudy "Wrecking" Crew vs. OEA Leadership/Lawyers

Wrecking Crew

Somebody from the outside has to expose a process that is ineffectual and unjust. Teachers are chattel, used and abused by unqualified assistant principals who become pawns of self-important local politicians.

Taxpayers are paying (for life) some school officials from Beaverton who made it HARDER for me to teach for seven years.

When I stood my ground after being paid unfairly, the Beaverton HR administrators contacted union officials with whom they met regularly and developed a plan to violate my employment contract.

...A below-the-belt sneak attack while my mom (a classroom teacher for 35 years) was dying. Of the three building principals who testified against me in a delayed employment hearing, a) one was coming to work drunk; b) another had run off some excellent teachers, among them a skilled African-American language arts teacher and an energetic deaf woman who taught ASL; and c) a third had been my boss for...three months. He was promoted to principal after the other two were forced out and given secrecy agreements.

When she was Beaverton union president, Hanna Vaandering, current VP of the OEA (ensconced on the OEIB), brought me an illegal settlement contract for a manipulative federal law suit that had been reported as settled--to help BSD HR officials and their lawyers cover up years of improprieties.

Not that it seemed to matter to all the lawyers, but I had been working seventy-hour weeks with challenging kids whom some other teachers did not wish to teach. I was working under some curiously-qualified administrators with very little understanding of what was happening in the classrooms. in what was then the largest high school in the state.

After I was paid unfairly and voiced concerns to a new superintendent and asked about resigning, my union rep was contacted and I was fired at mid-year, without warning, for insubordination and contrived sexual harassment charges.

The enusing, protracted ordeal, played out by collaborating lawyers as my mother died, is evidence of a systemic dysfunction that promotes poor leadership, encourages waste and cronyism and turns professional educators into chattel in Oregon public education.

What is called for is a form of institutional "demolition" before we can build foundations for good schools to serve citizens again.

What is called for is an outsider with no allegiances--someone with a wicked rep for taking on the entrenched power structure.  Someone who has already been awarded a nom de guerre by the WW editors.

The Wrecking Crew seems up to the job.

Her actions were designed to affect the outcome of a federal lawsuit. She lost her job consequently (Like me, she was small enough to fail). The improper use of TSPC "stipulations" and "pass-the-trash" deals effectively lets lawyers and bureaucrats in Oregon education play "God" with student welfare and teacher careers...
