Fowlerville Teacher Resigns, Investigation Begins

(WLNS) – Amid claims of intimidation and fears of retaliation, a Fowlerville teacher has resigned.

According to our media partners at WHMI, Diane Spence submitted her resignation from her teaching position at Kreeger Elementary School on February 22. In her resignation, she says she received an unfair evaluation from administrators at her school and could not work in that kind of environment.

Several parents addressed the Fowlerville Board of Education last night in support of Spence, saying Principal Jason Miller and Assistant Principal Josh Meersma consistently intimidate and bully teachers, students, and parents who make waves at the school. When asked for comment, most of the parents in attendance declined, saying they feared retaliation against their children.

Now Superintendent Wayne Roedel is going to investigate the claims and will bring his findings to the district’s personnel committee. The school board voted to accept Spence’s resignation.
