When my employment contract was violated mid-year 2003-04 by dishonest Beaverton School administrators and unethical lawyers they had employed, I was subjected to indecent bullying by state employees who were consistently abusing their authority. I was forced to wait six months for an FDAB hearing that was designed to circumvent my due process rights. In the meantime, my OEA-appointed lawyer, Tom Doyle of Bennett-Hartman, filed a breach-of-trust $1,000,000 civil suit for free speech in US District Court--without consulting me.
The findings of the FDAB hearing included charges for which there was no testimony or documentation yet the TSPC director, Victoria Chamberlain, persuaded DOJ lawyer Elizabeth Denecke to file for an unprecedented "accept-certain-facts-as-true" preclusion finding to shelter BSD employees who had lied under oath. My union lawyer delayed and eventually tanked my FDAB appeal while Chamberlain harassed me for almost four years to sign "stipulations" to unproven allegations. I steadfastly refused and she used DOJ lawyer Denecke to persuade (former) ALJ Andrea Sloan to rule in my case without allowing me to present a defense. I have been asking for a review of those findings for many years.
My mother was dying. I had been working 70-hour weeks with challenging students in two languages in both humanities and technology and had asked BSD HR officials to help me resign after being paid and treated unfairly by unfit administrators. Within weeks, I was fired for contrived sexual harassment charges that were dismissed by an FDAB panel consisting of school administrators are "judges" while my union lawyer manipulated me with the free speech federal lawsuit and allowed BSD's former lawyer, Nancy Hungerford, and the TSPC's former investigator, Susan Nisbett, to go on a witch hunt.
My mother died watching me fight for my dignity and rights in Oregon courts. I lost my career and good health as a result of the misconduct of people in your employ.
I was a very hard-working, dedicated teacher. I would appreciate very much a review of the circumstances that allowed the TSPC to damage my right to earn a living and to support BSD administrators who had violated state and federal laws in terminating me without cause and the lawyers they paid secretly to harass me in state and federal courts.
I am currently living out-of-the-country but will gladly appear before any objective body who will give me the justice I feel you stand for.
Please forgive me for any former efforts to communicate my situation that may have been deemed excessive or inappropriate. I "followed the rules" for years and waited futilely a long time before I began my email campaign, trusting in a dysfunctional system that failed me and caused my mother unnecessary suffering during her protracted illness.
I sense that you are different form others who have served in your role. I hope so.
Please examine the attached documents. Also, be assured that I am not giving up. I have been bullied by unaccountable people who have run Oregon's public schools into a last-place ditch. This is about more than me...teachers are chattel in the system I experienced. Reform cannot begin until leadership is required to be ethical and accountable.
