It goes on right here in Victoria. Not only do the kids do it but the adults join in. It is very sad and evil. Until you personally endure it with a child you can not comprehend the magnitude of how serious this epidemic is. To those who participate in it or turn a blind eye they find it funny or feel whoever is being tormented should just "get over it". It needs to be put to a stop immediately by anyone participating in it.

Thank you for speaking out publicly. No one was willing to support us in public for fear of retaliation which they have witnessed our families go through. It still continues today.The conspiracy theories are never ending and change daily as I am sure you will now become a part of a new theory.
Every word spoken was true and the ones who have supported her so vocally have taken part in the retaliation. That is why they do not understand because it is all a game to them.Thank you, thank you, thank you for speaking the truth!Sincerely, Kim Franklin
I totally agree that they reassigned her to Mitchell. She still gets a her full pay and gets to work with children in PE where she is certified to teach.
The Advocate never took either side. Although we answered questions they only stated what was happening. Go back and read the articles. The Houston Chronicle gave much more detail on her job history/accomplishments and the accusation by DJ about Mr. Klimist and the spin she gave to the reporter about the Keeling/Jaynes election. Her job history/accomplishments were necessary because Houston citizen's have no idea who she is.The lie about Bernie Klimist was just that another lie to deflect from the truth. Pick a conspiracy theory and stick with it. Each week it is a new vendetta someone supposedly had against her.
We NEVER spoke to Bernie. No one in VISD back us, took our sides but simply listened, looked at our evidence, along with former/current team members evidence and after a 3 month investigation they took the appropriate action.
Children are the center of the investigation and their names are part of the evidence. That is why VISD will never turn over that information to any reporter. Thankfully they have the best interest of the children in mind. We filed the grievances on our own because of the retaliation that we personally experienced. We had no one in administration or related to administration speaking up for us to VISD.
We never said DJ did not do good things, we were her biggest supporters until we were put in the position to see all of the wrong taking place. I've asked questions from day one only to be lied to and when you see the truth it's wrong to stick your head in the sand and allow current/future members to be done wrong.The facts are the facts and nothing will change that. As for TKB...it is no secret a family member is paid $37,000.00 for the event. That is not all profit for him but the entire event cost $60,000.00 to have. I have all of the receipts to prove it. This is not a privately owned business it is a public school class, which is credited and that is insane for any one person to make that kind of profit off of. That is our tax dollars being used.
I do not agree that ANOTHER story needs to be done. It is over, let it go and move on. To do another story is pouring salt in an open wound. Until your family personally has to experience the wrath/lies of the haters you can not comprehend. We never hated anyone and the retaliation is the reason any of this was ever started. Let it stop, please.
Once told about this blog and that my name was mentioned in a false accusation I have also decided to again state the truth.I use my real name, phone number and e-mail address. The ones on here blogging are clueless.You will never see the facts because children are involved and VISD serves in the best interest of the children. Not the nosey bloggers who want the "inside scoop". If you had been part of the grievance process you would know that.
The ones who have stated the false accusation that our grievances were overturned, get your facts straight. To overturn a decision means you must first, rule in the favor of the complaint, then change your mind to overturn it. Our request was granted, there's your proof. Our letters verify this.
No matter how much we have all tried to move forward and not resorted to bickering on the blogs it does no good. Your postings, name calling and childish behavior continue.If you call stating the facts, defending yourself then so be it. You blogging with no facts about a situation is ignorant. You have only been aquainted for 3 months with any of the individuals involved. You do not know anyones character in that amount of time.The facts from many in the community, not just us and from current/former team members were presented, she was reassigned. Future legal action that may be taken will only let these e-mails, recordings, documents and photos become a huge embarrassment. Anyone who is a former member/parent knows of the numerous harrassment and hazing incidents that took place over the years. To state you "have nothing to hide" only made past parents/members mad and they brought forth their evidence as well.
You have embarrassed yourself and DJ with your inmature blogs. Do her a favor and start living your life. Yes, I am responding because the accusations and lies are being sent directly to me and posted on the web. Bob Moore does not owe you, I or anyone else the facts presented. But he did not act quickly, it took three months of investigating and without solid proof he would not have made the decision. If it were a personal vendetta he could have reassigned her at anytime as her contract stated without reason. There had to be actual facts.No one coaxed us, walked us through anything and it all started because of retaliation. Those who supported her for years in and out of administration have now personally experienced the wrath we endured.
Victoria Advocate- Please do not remove this blog because of individuals personally using my name. I just received a phone call letting me know that my name is in this blog. I am an adult and can handle the name calling, harrassment and retaliation for doing what is right. I'm not bothered. I actually had not read this blog but have been blessed with caring friends and family who have let me know this was on here. Thanks to friends and family for giving me a chance to defend myself.
Westwhat- Thank you for your compliments on my dental hygiene, I brush my teeth daily, have them cleaned on a regular basis and have a wonderful dentist, glad you noticed(: When teeth (like other things in life) get broken or damaged I do my best to fix them immediately, it is a good motto to live by.
If it makes anyone feel better to call me names behind fake screen names etc... please, feel free just don't start attacking the kids. This is not an East VS West issue it is wrong being made right.Again, in case you have forgotten I have used my real name, photo which I took in my kitchen not thinking I should have not smiled (:(:(:(:, and given my phone number. You have never called, text or e-mailed me but chosen to behave like an inmature child. 361-676-1658 or you can reach me at Kimfranklin1986@yahoo.com
It is beautiful outside today, I just came inside, it would do you good to get some fresh air and release a little of your anger.Have a great afternoon(:Kim Franklin
