I was in the parking lot last week getting ready to watch my child practice football and I noticed that the Sr. High Band Director was pushing and shoving one of the kids and yelling at the top of his lungs. I wonder if he does this often or not? I can tell you I will never let my child in the band program at Tech if the adminstration allows him to do this. I believe that this should be ground for immediate dismissal. If I was that child's parent I would be contacting the daily press and get them involved. Look what happen when they got involved with the coaches (they are all gone but maybe one or two)

Yes he does this to get to the kid and use as an example he says to other students. He has threatened the students if they did not do something they would stay till right or would not go to competition. He plays favorites. But as far as cursing never seen this. He raises his voice and makes one feel horrible.

I am a grad from Tech and was in his band program and I have never known him to do so. He is a great director and person and is very carin. But this was some ten years ago as well. Things can change but I just dont see Mr. Davis doing this, cuz he is a great band teacher. If you are that concern why didnt you go over there and stop him? If you were any type of parent wouldnt you do that to any child? So please!

Why would you post this on topix instead of going to the superintendent? I think Mr. Davis is a wonderful and dedicated man, who spends countless upaid hours at the school. Take his salaray and mutliply it by the hours he spends with these band kids and you will find out that he does not get paid near enough. Very few teachers are that dedicated. By the way, you should park over close to the football coaches, and listen for awhile.

Danny is old school and will raise his voice to get a obviously smart kid that's being dumb to pay attention, but he would never raise a hand to any student.

The comment that started this post did happen. I have heard about it from more than one student, including my own. It has been reported to the principal. Now what will happen when Mr. Weeks knows?

What is the difference between Mr. Davis "yelling at the top of his lungs" at the kids, versus the football coaches "yelling at the top of their lungs" I saw a football coach pick up one of the younger kids and yell in his face. You parents that think that children should be handled with kid gloves (no pun intended) probably are the ones that have children that have zero respect for their teachers and other adults. I wouldn't be a teacher or football coach or band director for anything. Because they have to deal with kids that don't listen, don't have any respect and parents that gripe about everything and are up at the school complaining about "poor little Johnny"

Iono, they've done James Bond and The theme from The Planets. I don't think you really understand marching band all that much.
