Reinstated teacher will retire soon

Some people might wonder why teacher Tim Burgess wanted to return to Ottawa High School if the administration has treated him as badly as he says. After a five-year court battle, Burgess walked into OHS this school year a teacher again but without having settled all the issues from being fired.

He’s not planning on being there long; he’ll retire on December 18th. But he says it was important to return to teaching instead of just going away.

There is a court case pending in which Burgess alleges a conspiracy and defamation.
