My 3 kids liked him a lot as a teacher, they knew of some VERY weird things and saw through him. It's too common for a charismatic popular leader to fool many. (hmmm) Con men are experts. The extent of his deceit is frightening. NOT sorry to lose that, but sorry to lose the great teacher he really was. Thank you victims, for the courage to come forward, you have hopefully ended this reign and surely have saved others. Unfortunately he may still be a threat to girls elsewhere.
Wow. too bad (ya its true) he was an awesome teacher, made a few horrible decisions regarding young trusting sweet women. Its NOT their fault, a charismatic leader who can con many is not uncommon. Lots of kids saw this flaw, including me, my brother, my sister, lots of others I know. Bad things can lurk in a good soul. he is missed for the good he gave, cannot tolerate the other.
Coach T was like my best friend in track. He always pushed us to be the best athletes we could be. He was a very good teacher and i am devestated to see him leave. He was always a person who cheered up his students and is a very caring person. Everyone of his students looked forward to having him in their class. He was a person that you could talk to about anything and he would give you his honest opinion. He would try to help his students in anyway he possibly could. He is a great guy.
WOW Really? That is way harsh dude. It might not even be true. Stop hatin
Does anyone know If this whole thing is real or not ? Cuz mr t was one of the coolest teacher and he helped everyone with their problems, mr t always kept it real and always told the truth!? He is way to smart to do this or to even throw his life away I feel like people jump to far ahead without even knowing anything just to get people in trouble. He was the only teacher in franklin regional who helped the students and not be so stuck up and act like he was the greatest, he kept it real.
Arrested this morning! The fugivity level is through the roof!!!
I thought Mr. T was a awesome teacher in high school. I find the allegations hard to believe because he was one of the last people I would have ever expected that from. Even though they are allegations at this point I do not believe that it should be ignored at all and if they are true there should be legal repercussions. As a parent I wouldn't a teacher trying to have an affair with one of my daughters. Its just sad that this stuff happens at all.
The only black teacher in the district. has an ongoing affair with a white female student from her freshman-junior year.. the guy has (had) a wife and kids.. Really nice guy, really bad decision maker.
Can someone tell me what happened? Can't find any information anywhere.
I left my wallet in his class room back when I went to Franklin Regional back in 2007. He returned the wallet to me without the 30 dollars in cash in it.
When he taught self defense class to us he, in my opinion, would always get a little too close to us the students and would slap us on the butts in a Football coach style.
I ran into him two years ago, near the strip district and I am almost positive he was smoking a marijuana joint.
The Accusations are merely accusations. "Brotha T" is still my favorite teacher from my time at FR, and let us all remember that he is innocent until proven guilty. Who knows, this story might be made up
whoever gives up on T should give up on themselves. best guy i know!
I wish I had ten times the spaces here just to say how amazing Mr. T is. Had him for 4 of 5 gym classes and every single one was fun and hilarious. Who else would let you name a team A-rection? I gaurentee Billy Byers wouldn't. Keeps funny stats too!
I would like to rate higher however I actually had to work in his class unlike in Byers class
Incredible. You can tell he really enjoys what he's doing. Fair, honest, and just plain cool. He teaches you the right way to do things and lets you do it on your own time, so you don't feel pressured either. Awesome guy.
DUDE I LOVE TT!!!!!!!!!!!!! he was like the best teacher i ever had...if you get him, you are deff luckkyy!
Great teacher, The best I've ever had, energetic and exciting
T is without a doubt the best teacher in the school. He actually cares about his students. If you even have the tiniest problem he will listen and try to help.T Rocks!! If you are blessed with the privilege of havin him teach you, be thankful. Stay Black!
T's the man. he's always happy and u can ask him for help on anything. he's real down to earth
MR. T! Is awesome. Take it from an alumni, he is by far the coolest teacher in FR. And he'll always give you a helping hand.
T is the best teacher to ever walk the face of the planet... what else can i say
amazing. i love him soooo much. he listens to my problems and really cares for all of his students
I LOVE Mr. T!! He is the best ever. He would do anything to help one of his students out if they were having a problem. He's a good person who really cares about what his students think, and treats us like adults, the way we should be treated.
T rocks! Definitely the coolest teacher you could ever have
amazing, i can't imagine a single person who doesn't think he's great
Mr. T is the best teacher I had in all of high school. I never had a problem that I needed to go to him with, but I knew I could if I needed to. Great guy.
"Watch the Fujivity, brothers!" Best. Teacher. Ever. (Except for Mac, possibly)
Unbelievably awesome in every respect. Actually keeps P-O-S jocks in check, unlike most gym teachers.
Hands down, Thompson is the greatest guy there is. Very nice, motivational, cool, and the whitest black guy I know. How can you not love him?
mr. t is the coolest teacher without a doubt. awesome to talk to if you ever have any kind of problem with anything. good person
mr. thompson is the greatest teacher. he doesn't treat you like an "immature teenager"
this guy rocks - he treats you like an adult and is very cool, be glad you have him
