August 10,am 1 So I finally managed to break away from the Chinese and Korean places in Edison and got my ass over to Iselin for some Indian action. I know very little about Indian food and have been eager to try some places here and finally got around to it! We started off at a really dead food court. There were a few different shops but not knowing any better, we went ahead and ordered some things. Anyway, I ended up with a sandwich with some kind of slop and onions on the side.
Parents of special needs children in a New Jersey school district say they want three teachers who were caught in an online chat allegedly making disparaging comments about students and former colleagues fired from the district. The chat was discovered by a co-worker after the three teachers at Edison schools spent the morning of Oct. One of the teachers, Tyler Van Pelt, invited the others, Maria Weber and Maryellen Lechelt, into what he called a "personal wiseass backchannel discussion" on a public chat program called Today's Meet, according to the chat transcript.
Van Pelt allegedly called children "short bus kids," adding that he referred to one of his groups of students as "I hate you don't waste my time.
Lechelt allegedly said she referred to another group as "jesus christ, why the did they place you with me? The two are teachers at Lincoln Elementary School.
Weber, a teacher at James Monroe, did not respond to those messages, transcripts show. But she allegedly participated in disparaging the woman running the computer training program that day in a conversation filled with sexual innuendo. The chat was discovered by another teacher in the training room, who said she heard them laugh after she turned around to shush them, according to NJ Advance Media.
She suspected they were chatting about her, and found the chat transcript insulting. She reported the chat to her principal. The three were suspended with pay and are accused of unbecoming conduct, insubordination for misuse of school technology, failure to pay attention to the training and violating the district's sexual harassment and affirmative action policies, among other charges.
At a meeting Monday evening, the Edison Board of Education moved forward in a process to potentially terminate the teachers, putting them on paid leave for days.
Their case will be sent to an arbitrator, who will decide whether to fire the teachers, reduce their pay or reinstate them. Parent Anthony Pasquale said during the public remarks portion of the meeting: "I truthfully feel there should be an apology by those teachers to the school district and to the township.

You're dealing with. If you don't have it in you, I feel like the decent thing for you to do is to re," said parent Andrea Siragusa.
A fourth teacher who participated in the chats, Jonathan Bauza, reed rather than face disciplinary action, the district told NJ Advance Media. NBC 4 New York was unable to reach the teachers' lawyers Monday, but Lechelt's lawyer told NJ Advance Media prior to the vote that he believes the teachers' punishment is inappropriate.
