New Rochelle High School Music Video an Example of Bad Timing in Wake of Librarian Sex Sting

Rabadi

A teacher and his students at New Rochelle High School have created a YouTube video entitled Call Me Maybe - Mr. Rabadi. The video was posted yesterday. At the time Talk of the Sound linked the video is had 300 views. This morning it has over 3,000 and climbing.

UPDATE: The video was removed from YouTube on June 7th but later uploaded again on June 8th. In the meantime, the video was uploaded by Talk of the Sound to Vimeo but was removed once the video was back on YouTube.

The kids are all cute and the video is a happy, upbeat homage to a favorite teacher.

In light of the past 14 months, however, where New Rochelle Board of Education employees have been arrested for having or attempting to having sex with students, the image of the teacher holding up a note from a student saying "call me" are more than uncomfortable viewing. The images of the teacher sitting at a desk, texting, while the girls dance around him, brings into question the judgement of those involved. There is a time and place for everything and this is so clearly not the time or place for this sort of video that it is difficult to imagine what these people were thinking.

The video is a lip-sync version of a current pop song by Carly Rae Jepsen called "Call Me Maybe". The lyrics depict girl is soliciting a phone call from a stranger with which she has had a chance encounter in a love-at-first sight scenario. In the video the stranger is her neighbor who turns out to be gay and not interested in her but rather a guy in her back up band. In a twist to the video, the boy hands a note to the guy who reacts with surprise.

I threw a wish in the well,
Don't ask me, I'll never tell
I looked to you as it fell,
And now you're in my way

I'd trade my soul for a wish,
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn't looking for this,
But now you're in my way

Your stare was holdin',
Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blowin'
Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

It's hard to look right,
At you baby,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

You took your time with the call,
I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all,
But still, you're in my way

I beg, and borrow and steal
Have foresight and it's real
I didn't know I would feel it,
But it's in my way

Your stare was holdin',
Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blowin'
Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

It's hard to look right,
At you baby,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
I missed you so, so bad

It's hard to look right,
At you baby,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that

So call me, maybe?

I think this is a well done YouTube Video and I see absolutely nothing wrong with this at all. The kids are cute its in fact more inspiring and maybe a stretch on your part Bob. There is nothing sexually suggestive it mixes guys and girls who I know are seniors as I know some of the performers.
Why throw out the baby with the bath water. Nothing going on with this that is bad. One very dumb Librarian should not ruin some good stuff

This looks like something done cleanly and in the good taste of fun. Very creative and not objectionable. But with every witch hunt, a few good people get inadvertently stained for their good efforts.

liked it, was creative, fun and nice to see a positive relations among students and a teacher.

Have no idea of what "too soon" means in this context. Better this creative performance than the sight of that pirate fan draffing tail to the court of justice.

If there are hard and fast rules, maybe we should alleviate it somewhat by not showing the U tube video?

No, Martin, Fed Up and others have it right I think. Nice piece of work with talented youngsters.

Nicer still to know we have a faculty member who seems like he can higher math across to kids.

Warren,

As I said in my article, "The kids are all cute and the video is a happy, upbeat homage to a favorite teacher." No doubt the kids are talented and the video production is good and its a happy, upbeat video. I don't think the choice is between the librarian in the pirate hat and this video.

My criticism is not with the production quality or the acting. It is the content and the context.

Someone came up with the idea of doing a fun homage to their teacher, fine.

Someone thought it would be fun to do that my making a video of kids lip-syncing to a pop song. Fine.

Someone then selected this particular song, questionable.

Someone decided to shoot clips and edit them into a video with lyrics and images of students offering their number to a teacher and asking the teacher to call them. The teacher is shown holding the number. He is then shown texting, presumable with a student. Not as fine.

If you will look past the images and pop beat, you will see a video about students wanting to have a personal and even sexual relationship with their teacher and his reciprocating.

Even this could be chalked up to snarky teen humor but for the reality that this exact scenario just took place at this school and the teacher has been arrested.

For those who choose to ignore the facts of the lyrics, the images in the video and the context of the recent arrest of this teacher's colleague, all I can say is that I believe your replies here are a case of trying to appear to hip for your own good.

I wonder how some of you might feel if it is was your child who was a victim of Jose Martinez or Marisa Anton and then seeing how the school district -- teachers and students -- are making light of a situation that was very real for them.

I know, I know. I know all you are saying. Not in dispute.

It is simple. This story will draw interest as long as it appears. It is simply the wday things work.

Not many deny the affect reelings behind what you say in your last sentence. No parent wants a child to be a victim of adult sexual misconduct.

Speaking for myself, I know someone made a decision on context and character; a decision that someone likely would repeat were there no Anton.

You say tomatoe, some say tomato. I say let it rest, your journalistic right or obligation is to let it continue.

Said all I am going to say. I covered my view above and have a little sense of adverse impacet; don't see any here.

Uncharacteristically for me, I will be silent and hope this stain leaves the community and we can concentrate on other matters.

But as always, respect, albeit in this case, disagree with your view and life goes on.

Hope people attend the VFW 8 Armory meeting tonight.

Warren,

OK. Glad you have said all you are going to say.

It is not a matter of "adverse impact". You and others are making lots of statements praising the video, the student and the teacher which have nothing to do with what I wrote. Your and others are assiduously not addressing what I did write -- that the decision to use this song, with those images at this time was poor judgement considering the timing a week after the arrest of Marisa Anton, the night before she was appearing in court.

We can agree the kids had fun, the teacher is "cool", the kids are engaged and learn in his class. I have no doubt that the sentiments expressed her about the teacher are heartfelt and true.

None of which addresses my point -- this video was poorly timed, thoughtless and makes light of what has been, based on news accounts across the county, an increasing problem of inappropriate, overly-familiar and illegal relationships between students and teachers.

That school resources were used to make this video is another issue which I have not even bothered to address.

As a student of the school and a student of Mr. Rabadi's I would just like to say that nobody, and I mean NO ONE, took this video the way YOU wanted it to be, Mr. Cox. Also, I would like to point out that he is not texting, that is a calculator, if it was a "prop" and they were trying to display a cellphone being used, they would have used a cell phone. Also, just a question for you Mr.Cox, You go out of your way all the time to make my school district look bad and if you dislike it THAT much, then why do you send your child to our school?

Robert Cox's picture

I do not recall arresting Patrick Clark, Jose Martinez or Marisa Anton. I believe that was the Westchester County District Attorney and New Rochelle Police Department.

The school district makes itself look bad all by itself.

Ok but you did not answer the question of if the school district is SOOOOOO terrible then why do you send your kids here?

You are a wanna-be muckracker, a cyber bully. Nothing more.

if you were affened by this video the I apologise for my fellow.class mates but grow up. Your acring like a chiled who teels the teacher on everyone.

Why cant you talk about how some kids at our school found a lost dog and returned it to its owner in no harm.
Or how whe had a pave art show at the warehouse showroom,and that it was beutifull

Just please stop acting like that old man knowone likes because he calls the cops oneveryone for nothing.

I reapeat im sorry if you were affended im apologise for our school

the fact that you put his picture up is just wrong
Oh sorry for my spelling its not easy typing on a phone

Honestly Mr. Cox, if NRHS is THAT bad, why send your son there? Also, for the record, NRHS should be honored they have a teacher like Mr. Rabadi. I am a current student of his, that man has taught me more math in one year than i have learned in the rest of high school. He is truly an outstanding teacher. In no way would he ever even think of having sexually illicit acts with students-- that's just not Rabadi. Although I was not a part of this video, I can tell you that it was in no way intended to mock Ms. Anton or imply any sexual or inappropriate feelings. Just because one teacher was involved with illegal sexual actions with a classmate of mine does not mean ALL teachers are like that. Please do get your mind out of the gutter. And while you're at it, take the chip off your shoulder. If New Rochelle is really all that bad, than why is all of the NRHS community jumping down your throat and criticizing this opinion based crap of yours?
My reasoning? You crave attention on any way possible. People like you need the attention of others to feel adequate, even if it is negative attention. I am unfortunately feeding this desire of yours, but i felt that everything here had to be said.
Maybe you should consider writing positive things about the school district, perhaps about some of our outstanding teachers. A good start would be Mr. Rabadi. You could write about how he has inspired many to continue with higher levels of math, like myself. If it hadn't been for Mr. Rabadi, i probably wouldn't have signed up for math for my senior year. Instead, I am going to take AP Stat and Calculus. He is truly one of the best teachers NRHS has.
Lastly, I would like to say if you don't have something nice to say, don't say it. Didn't your mother teach you that? Maybe you weren't listening that day. You catch more bees with honey than you do with vinegar-- so be nice and highlight the good, not the bad. Judging a book by its cover, or in this case a teacher based on a video which YOU and ONLY YOU perverted, is wrong. As stupid and simple as those sayings are, it would benefit you to take them all to heart, Mr. Cox.

Robert Cox's picture

I have never written nor even thought that this teacher had any thoughts about "having sexually illicit acts with students".

I expressed an appreciation for what the video was intended to be -- an homage to a favorite teacher. I also think it was unwise to put out this video at this time.

Robert Cox's picture

Did you listen to the song? Did you read the lyrics? Have you seen the singer's video for this song? I embedded that video above.

Why do you think the girl in the song wants the guy to call her? To study for the AP exam?

I too, must say that this article is a stretch, to say the least. The actions of one employee should not result in the school turning into a military academy (or the NFL) where personal expression is not allowed.

I had the pleasure of having Mr Rabadi as a teacher back in 2005, and he still remains the most dynamic instructor I have ever encountered. He has a unique ability to first relate to the student (regardless of race, ethnicity, gender), which then allows you to absorb the knowlesge of a rather complex curriculum (Calculus).

This video merely shows that he is a human being just like the students he teaches - a way to relate. A lot of teachers have this hidden myth about them, which in my eyes is more scary and dangerous than a teacher who expresses his enjoyment of life openly with all, including his student. Don't throw stones at the man for having the talent to engage his students and instruct effectively.

Robert Cox's picture

"This video merely shows that he is a human being just like the students he teaches"

I do not see anything in the video that specifically depicts what you describe. That may be how you feel about the video but what I actually hear and see in the video is that a girl sings about wanting a guy to call her because she has fallen in love with him and wants to be chased by the guy, the video also shows the teacher getting a phone number and sending a text message while sitting at the girl's desk in the classroom.

I would not have remarked upon this at all two years ago and maybe even not a year ago but it has only been a week since we first reported the arrest of the librarian at the same school for allegedly getting the number of a student, texting that student, sending them sexual photos of themselves and arranging to meet with the student at the student's home to accomplish a sexual act with the student.

This strikes me as unwise, to say the least.

1. The entire classroom (including all of the boys) hold up a paper with a fake "555" phone number on it

2. For a teacher to not only support, but be willing to participate in a current trend clearly shows that he is not "unreachable" or better than his students. He is a relatable human being. The entire participation of the production as a whole, and not anything specific in the video, depicts he is merely a human being who can relate to his students.

3. It's one thing to have a biased opinion, but what you have done is craft your article in a manner that paints a picture of complete negativity. Sure you're not obligated to do so, but in my "opinion", you'd be much more effective if you didn't come off as so obviously one sided.

There is nothing wrong with this video. It is done in good taste and exemplifies the good humor and interaction between teacher & students. Yes, there are problems with some kooky personnel in our schools and city govt, but to lump this YouTube video with those others is a bit misleading and puritanical. A little latitude is in order.

Robert Cox's picture

the timing is questionable. I was in court today where Marisa Anton appeared before a judge in her case. I was in court for the Martinez case.

A lp-sync video fine? Honoring the teacher, fine.

But in the week after the arrest of Marisa Anton for the video to show a teacher getting a student's phone number and texting them seems kinda dumb. The lyrics don't help matters.

I don't think it is puritanical to think that this video can be scene as mocking the Anton arrest.

I was in court today also where Marisa Anton was tried. I didn't happen to see any mention of this video, this song, or Mr. Rabadi. Congrats on becoming public enemy number one of New Rochelle High School.

Robert Cox's picture

Why would this come in court today?

I understand it must be very lonely being you. And you seem to be the only one who had made a connection between the video and Anton. So you dragged people into your lonely world by making that connection. Since we are talking about school, please pick up your dunce cap and stand in the corner where you will once again be alone. That way the rest of us can go back to enjoying life and not making up connections that did not exist (until you put your fingers on your keyboard).

Robert Cox's picture

"you seem to be the only one who had made a connection between the video and Anton"

Really? Then why did News 12 run a story on this immediately following their report on Anton's court appearance today. The facts would indicate that plenty of people share my view that whatever the intent, the timing was poor.

Where do you get your 'facts' from? 'Plenty of people?'

When I saw the video story follow the librarian story, two thoughts came to mind.

1) If you had not blogged this story, News12 would not have picked it up. Meaning, it was not an issue.
2) They followed each other because.....hold on to your hat.....they both involved New Rochelle.

Back to 'plenty of people.' Yes, the plenty of people are NRHS students who loved the video. It seems that you and the two parents interviewed did not like it. And I believe the parents did not like the content. You had no issue with the content, just the timing. Two very different issues. From the math courses I had taken, 3 does not constitute plenty. Wait. Have you counted all of the blogs that AGREE with you? Would love to know the #s who support your ideology and those who do not agree. Can you share that data with us please?

These are students from Mr. Rabadi's AP class. They worked hard all year and I am sure the results on the AP exam will be terrific. It is clear from this video that they truly appreciate him AS A TEACHER and were letting off the pressures of a challenging course.

To connect this wonderfully produced video (clearly they did a lot of rehearsing) with the incident of the librarian shows a huge disconnect between a great educator and a misguided adult. How often do you see students who love their math teacher and go out of their way to show their appreciation? With more 'Mr. Rabadis' in math classrooms around the country, the US wouldn't have such poor results compared to other countries.

Robert Cox's picture

Under other circumstances I would not have any issue with this video. As I said, I think the timing is poor considering that another NRHS educator was in court today on charges that relate to improper phone calls and texts between a teacher and a student.

Sorry folks this is all at a bad time.A teacher with a phone number in hand even though not his sends the wrong message. There was just a incident at the high school. Maybe some thought should have gone into this about the timing of this.This is clearly not the time for this type of viedo to be aired.

I would just like to point out that, contrary to what has been stated, Mr. Rabadi is not texting in the video. He is holding a calculator, not a cell phone.

Robert Cox's picture

This is a film. The calculator is a prop.

The teacher is moving his thumbs in a motion used in sending text messages; he is clearly not calculating a math problem. In fact, he is not actually pressing any keys.

In the context of the video, considering the lyrics, he has gotten the number and is now making use of the number to make contact with the person who gave it to him.

In light of the charges currently pending against his former colleague this strikes me as thoughtless and ill-advised.

Or you could pull your head out of your ass and see that he's just typing some of the lyrics of the song on the calculator using it's implemented alphabet. Try paying attention to the environment and see that it is a math class. You're pretty stupid so I'll just let you in on a little secret. People use calculators in math classes.

It's the 21st century by the way. Why would anyone use a calculator as a prop for a phone when the majority of individuals HAS A PHONE?

You're perverted and pathetic. Open your eyes and realize that people like you are the reason that this world is spiraling into a puddle of shit.

Mr. Rabadi is a phenomenal teacher who has lead hundreds of students to perfect scores on Advanced Placement Exams and strong Regents exam scores.

What do you do? Sit on your ass all day and criticize the world because your life sucks? Yeah, you do.

Great people die each and every day but people like you still roam this planet. You're a horrible thing.

Robert Cox's picture

"he's just typing some of the lyrics of the song on the calculator using it's implemented alphabet"

Uh huh. And why is using his thumbs and why are his thumbs not touching the keyboard?

The issues is not whether the teacher is a good teacher or whether the production quality of the video is good or whether the students had fun making the video. The issue is one of judgement -- is this really the time to put out a video like this when one of his colleagues in in court on charges which mirror what is going on in this video.

As for your foul-mouthed rant, is this a result of the phenomenal teaching your are talking about or did you just learn that all on your own?

First of all, Mr. Rabadi is well respected in the community and has accomplished more than you ever will. He's a great role model and amazing human being. Don't try to connect him to anything I say. I'm speaking as an independent individual who looks at your bullshit and feels offended.

Now, you keep on saying 'bad timing.' This video was made to end off a great school year. Many of the students in the video are seniors heading off to college in the fall. This was a final good bye with ONLY good intentions. You ruined it though. You killed the moment.

The song is only that, a song. A catchy song that holds as you said, "a happy, upbeat homage to a favorite teacher." The video was never meant to imply sexual feelings or material of that sort. However, you manage to connect children and sex frighteningly immediately.

By the way, of course I'm angry. I see how you talk about this district and wonder why you don't just move far away.

Robert Cox's picture

I am not sure what that means but I listened to the song. I also watched the original video for the song. I then drew a conclusion from that.

Just curious to know how would you characterize what the original recording artist is singing about in the song or what is happening in the video she made for the song?

The original recording artist, Carly Rae Jepsen, is 26. I'm sorry you're so insecure about your old age that you fail to see that she is a full fledged adult.

Her song depicts a love story that has been seen in the media for decades. If you have a problem with that love story then you probably would have a problem with songs from a majority of music artists today and in the past like Madonna or Cher.

The fact that you related this fun filled and happy video to sexual tensions between adults and children strikes me as scary. You obviously have gone through experiences personally that have corrupted your mind. What exactly happened in your childhood that you've completely failed to trust the student-teacher learning environment? Was it something at home with your mother or father? Another relative or even a stranger?

I just hope that you treat your children better than you treat others.

WHAT BETTER TIME!

After this scandal where a teacher was a threat to a student, what better time then now to show student-teacher unity! This is 100% a joke, and any person who knew Mr. Rabadi and knew his humor would see it as one indefinitely.

This video WAS NOT trying to make a statement, but it you want to say that it did then fine... It showed at a time of doubt, students and teachers can still act as one.

You talking about the lyrics and texting on a calculator is just trying to be picky and get NRHS teachers into more crap.

That is completely your bias opinion.

He is a math teacher, in a math classroom. I personally saw this as the teacher not noticing the kids dancing around him while he's focusing on something else as a joke. The lyrics of the song hold no importance. If you were up to date on your media you'd know many people across the country are making covers of this song as a joke. I think this video would be a huge hit.

Robert Cox's picture

The ran a story on the video after running a story on Marisa Anton. They did some man on the street interviews.

The students saw nothing wrong and the parents objected.

Simple question (for a simple minded person). How many parents were interviewed on News 12?

Good. Now let's play connect the dots. Do you think every single parent interviewed said the same thing as the couple who were interviewed?

Still able to process the facts? Good! There may be hope for you after all. Bonus question. True or False: Do you think News 12 showed both positive and negative reactions to show there are two sides to the story, not one sided like yours?

If you were not able to add 1 + 1 + 1 from the questions above, I will ask the NR School District to enroll you in one of Mr. Rabadi's math classes. He has been known to make lemonade out of lemons. Thank you for reading this far Mr. Lemon.

Robert Cox's picture

"Do you think News 12 showed both positive and negative reactions to show there are two sides to the story, not one sided like yours?"

I am under no obligation to present "two sides" in expressing my opinion. That said, I did state several positive things about the video but questioned the timing of the video.

Your response tells me that you did not process what I wrote. YOU had written that on the News12 piece, the kids saw nothing wrong with the video but the parents did. That implies the adults think it was wrong (siding with your belief).

I did not infer that YOU post both sides, I said do you think ALL adults interviewed by News12 were in agreement? News12 was showing both sides to the story. Since they couldn't find any students who found it wrong, my guess is that they used the ONE set of parents who expressed the opposing view. The minority should be allowed to voice their opinion, just as you have the right. As with TV reporting both sides of a story, the viewer can make an informed decision. The difference on a blog is that when the original poster reads the overwhelming opposing view, he/she has the opportunity to realize that they may have been wrong. But of course that takes and open mind.....

This is honestly one of the stupidest articles ever, Mr. Rabadi in no way whatsoever has made this video sexually explicit or even imply anything sexual. It's a stupid fun song that everyone knows, and it does not mean that he has done anything to the level of what Anton has been arrested for and I highly doubt he will ever do so. Mr. Rabadi is one of the highest held teachers at New Ro high and even though I never had him , I have heard nothing but good things of him. and if you aren't aware , there have been quite a few of other cases of teachers performing this song like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=9TZqfHTp8pc.
Maybe you should write an article on that school too?

All I have to say is that there is no reason for this article to even exist. Honestly, what are you hoping to accomplish by having this post on your blog? There are enough issues in the city of New Rochelle with the recent events that there is no reason for any attention to be going to such a stupid article that can only do harm to innocent people. How dare you accuse these amazing students (and OUTSTANDING teacher) of mocking a serious and upsetting event such as the one involving the librarian. If you find this video uncomfortable for any reason, fine. Stop watching it and move on. Even dislike it, if you so choose. Really, you should not have the audacity to call out these students and this teacher on something that is no more than a fun, end-of-the-year video displaying the happiness that New Rochelle High School brings to its students. You are causing an unnecessary ruckus and innocent people should not be feeling guilty because of it. As Arnold Diaz would say it, SHAME, SHAME, SHAME.

Robert Cox's picture

If the video is nothing more than "a fun, end-of-the-year video displaying the happiness that New Rochelle High School brings to its students" then why has been pulled from YouTube and the account closed?

Seems like someone agrees with me.

Actually, it has been taken down because this outrageous article is putting negative attention in the wrong place. The student who uploaded it probably wants to protect the teacher and students involved in the video from getting any kind of repercussions considering they did NOTHING wrong and you are making them out to be the bad guys. Taking down the video is simply a message to you to stop your ridiculousness.

Robert Cox's picture

Did you even read the article?

It is simply because you brought unnecessary media to the matter. I'm sure it was simply taken down to avoid conflict because every teacher would rather be safe then lose their job. If it was me, I wouldn't have let a man writing a blog behind a screen push me around but job security is everything in today's economy. You wrote about Ms. Anton, look where she is now. No teacher wants that to be them. They shouldn't be subject to your unjustified abuse. Not only are your facts incorrect on this matter, but they have been incorrect on many instances before. If NRHS had more teachers like Rabadi kids would stop cutting class so often because they would want to be there. #TeamRabadi

You really cannot be THAT far from reality. All it would take is for you to THINK for one second. Is that a lot to ask? You asked WHY the video was pulled and the account closed. Simple. Your misconstrued blog put the STUDENT who posted it into a very uncomfortable position. So HE removed it.

Now knowing the FACTS (isn't it awful when facts slam you in the face of your ideology?), the tables have turned. You sir, should now be accused of child abuse. You have single handedly traumatized a minor. I think it is time to notify the police of your criminal behavior. That would make a great article for Talk of the Sound. Have to find a blogger to write the story of your impending arrest!

Clicking the embed link to the video now displays a a message reading: "This video is no longer available because the uploader has closed their YouTube account".

Congrats you must feel so accomplished with your life.

I am a proud student of New Rochelle High School and find you article totally out of place and unnecessary. I'm not a student of mentioned teacher but find complete offence. If it weren't for you this video would not be looked down upon by anyone. It's said he who control media controls all. In America that is very true. And you sir are adding more flames to the fire. How is this video related to the librarian at all? I'm offended and unhappy at this because our school is going through a bad time in the media's eyes and the students suffer for it. I don't want people across the county or in the nation that if we go away to college think negatively of those who come from New Rochelle High School for incoherent blogs and posts like this. People make parody's of songs all the time and post them on youtube. There should be no relation made to the librarian and this video not should it be looked upon because he or any of the kids in the video are doing anything wrong. I don't want my school be looked down upon because of things like this. The librarian scandal is a great media story its what all of you look for whether if its a simple blog, to fox and cnn. Your putting things where they shouldn't be.

This is a total shame. I wish this had never been done! This has only caused more problems that are reflected badly onto the school and the students. Why did this happen in the first place?

All these problems started with an old guy called Cox.He was such a hateful person that anything fun and creative that the kids at New Rochelle did, he thought it was of bad taste and disgusting. Because of his hate towards the schools of New Rochelle, he decided to blog about all the horrible things that happened and "forgot" to mention any of the great things that happen, unless somehow they involve his son. In that case, he doesn't mention anyone's name except his son's name.

He sees the worst in everything, even if there isn't anything bad in what he is seeing. He makes it up in order to feel good about himself.

With this video, the AP Students decided to have some fun after taking their AP exams(and knowing Rabadi, they probably all got 4s and 5s). Cox sees the video as a parody of what happened with Ms. Anton, even if it isn't. He sees a calculator as a phone. He even sees a "group of girls dancing around him"(I think he "forgot" to mention there were two boys dancing around him too).

Are you mad no one in New Rochelle likes you? Well, this post you just made adds up to the "Reasons why we hate Cox list."

Let students have fun at the end of the year and stop trying to ruin everything they do. They love this teacher because he is a great teacher. How does it feel to not be loved, Cox?
