I am also from Popayan, Colombia and I really think he is capable of this and more. I owe him teaching me (and my classmates in Campestre Americano School) English but I also know he was trying to seduce a girl in this same school when we were only 8th graders and 13 years old, my school teachers are very negligent and they never find out that, they even wanted to re-hire him for the coming school year, also the Physics teacher Rodrigo Alberto Montaño has a relationship with and eleventh grader and once more the directives did nothing about it.

There are four teachers now with charges pending for having inappropriate sexual contact with students.
In this day and age of a teacher shortage, we owe it to our children to tighten up on background checks and safety precautions.
We can't even monitor teachers crossing state and county lines who are alleged sex offenders. Why hire out of the country?

To clarify my last post, there are FOUR teachers with charges pending for having sex with students right here in Union County Public Schools, in North Carolina. What kind of school district has FOUR teachers arrested for having sex with students? Why are we engaged in a game of Pass the Trash, when this teacher from Columbia is a known problem in his own country, according to post on this site? Are we so desperate for teachers in the county that we will hire anyone as a warm body? Our children are at RISK! Shame on this district for the slow response to allegations of teachers having sex with students, and for teachers being able to cross county, state, and even other country borders to put other students at such risk.

We allow our top government officials to get by with it, so who sets the morality of our country?
