Who is Stacy Schuler? Reading between the lines.

(On July 13th 2011 Stacy Schuler plead guilty by reason of insanity to these charges.  I took a lot of heat for putting this post up by members of the union who wanted to take the light off this situation.  However, since this case, many of the guilty with knowledge of the case have left town for new jobs hoping to cool things down.  And now Schuler has declared herself guilty hoping to get a plea deal for a lesser charge to the charges leveled at her.  So, read this article again knowing what you know now and compare it to what we knew then and do as I do, and that’s wonder how many more “insane” teachers are out there asking for money and claiming that they can teach our kids more than the parent.)

Also consider the date of the article in which she gave the interview below.  She was “supposedly” insane while she was speaking to the reporter.  However, the Mason School System had enough confidence in her to use her to help sell their school levy to the public, even as she had another relationship with her direct supervisor, George Coates going on during all this activity.

Now, the article as it appeared originally when the story broke.

 

________________________________________________________

I don’t really want to pick on this young woman. She is innocent until proven guilty. But there are some facts that we already know and whether or not a jury convicts her of the charges leveled in her direction only time will tell. She certainly involved herself in behavior that is left to debate. The severity of that behavior will be up to the prosecutor and a jury to decide which will establish new social standards moving forward.

What I’m interested in when I run into an article like the one written below by the Mason High School’s online magazine, The Cronline, is what is the overall message.  The Cronline is a student magazine at the school which is designed to create an impression to the public and give student reporters a way to hone their reporting skills.  So it’s partly an education device for the school and a public relations arm. 

When I read articles like the one below, I can’t help but see patterns hidden in the wording. It’s a habit of mine.  You could say I’ve made a living seeing what other people overlook. So I went back and re-read this article that I remembered from right after the levy campaigns in November 2010 ended. I took it back then as a nice PR piece that teachers do to let parents know that their kids are in good hands with ambitious professionals. My initial impression was I thought Stacy was putting a lot of emphasis on being busy, and was probably trying to hide the fact that she was actually bored, and the slant of the writing was to help make parents want to vote “yes” for their levy in November.  However something seemed wrong with it that I couldn’t quite get my teeth in it. But because it was Mason, and not Lakota, I left it alone.

When this sex scandal story broke I went back to see if I could find that article online, because I thought I recognized the name, and found that The Cronline still had it up, so I posted it below before they took it down. I thought it would be interesting now, knowing what we know about the 16 count indictment that she is accused of sexual battery of 5 football players, and having a sexually oriented relationship with the assistant principle of the same school, to look at the below interview with the eyes of psychological analysis. So read the article below. I’ll highlight the sections that I think were particularly revealing about her character.

The balancing act

Between five jobs, Schuler uses meditation, organization to control stress
Janica Kaneshiro | Staff Writer

A common excuse among high school students is, “I didn’t have time,” and many times, they feel like their teachers don’t understand their busy schedules, according to Mind and Body Wellness and Sports Medicine teacher Stacy Schuler. She said what many don’t realize is that school is just one aspect of many teachers’ lives. For example: Schuler has five other jobs.

“I teach at Mason High School,” Schuler said. “I work for Atrium Medical Center, so that means I do athletic training at Mason and other schools that Atrium covers. I work for Miami Valley Hospital. I do athletic training for [Alter High School], and I also do strength and conditioning [there]. I also work for the sports advantage clinic [at Miami Valley Hospital], and that’s for people who do post-surgery rehab, and athletes trying to improve their fitness. I [also do] yoga and personal training at people’s houses.”

Senior Justin Lamb, who works with Schuler after school in the training room and at the Atrium as an intern, said she has taught him various ways to deal with time constraints.

“She’s taught me a lot,” Lamb said. “With physical training everything is about time management. She’s taught me that you have to keep everything in place for everybody, like water for the football players and dealing with injuries in a timely manner. She’s really good at managing her time; she has to be.”

Schuler said she understands that students sometimes have hectic schedules since her own demanding lifestyle is crazy.
“Kids [say], ‘You don’t understand; you don’t know what it’s like to be busy,’” Schuler said. “But I’m like, ‘Yes, I really do understand what it’s like to be busy.’ Sometimes I laugh because I feel like students don’t see teachers as anything else besides the [people] standing in front of the class.”

Besides just her paying jobs, Schuler said her other time commitments include being an avid animal rights activist, starting her own business, to practicing her black belt in the art of Ninjutsu.

“I have my own photography business,” Schuler said. “Also, in my spare time, I love to do my martial arts training. That’s something that, right now, I only get to do really very sporadically, [and] it used to be a weekly thing for me.”

Schuler said she was raised as a busy person, so it’s only natural for her to want to take on several commitments. She said her current time commitments fill her schedule with activities from dawn to dusk.

“[Monday through Friday,] I wake up at five a.m.,” Schuler said. “I’m usually home around ten. On Friday nights [I get home] a lot later because of [football] games, so sometimes I won’t get home until midnight. On weekends, I still have to get up early because I have football injury checks in the morning. I usually have games and tournaments on the weekends [at which I have to work,] so I might get up at six a.m. on Saturdays, and I won’t get home till 8:30 or 9 p.m.”

With everything she does, Schuler said that she can get stressed out, but sleep and organization are major factors in the way she handles it.

“[T]he way I deal with [stress] is really through yoga and meditation, because even if I don’t get enough sleep, …I meditate,” Schuler said. “If I lost [my iPhone calendar,] I would show up to the wrong place wearing the wrong work shirt or something, so I have to be really organized.”

Schuler said that even sleep and organization aren’t enough to keep her relaxed all the time, and when she gets really stressed, she tries to change her perceptions.

“If you just…get perspective on a situation, [you] realize that stressing does you no good,” Schuler said. “It’s not going to fix the situation and it really just takes you further away from any sort of resolution or any productive work towards whatever needs to be done.”

Senior Chloe Crites, who is in Schuler’s Mind and Body Wellness class, said that Schuler has taught her to look at her commitments with a fresh perspective when she gets stressed.

“I think it’s crazy [that Schuler has so many jobs],” Crites said. “I can’t imagine her schedule, because I get stressed and I just have one job. But [by being in her class,] I’ve learned from her that [when I get stressed, it helps] to know everything has a purpose and if I focus on one thing at a time it isn’t so bad. She teaches us to always take a break for yourself, because that helps you focus.”

Schuler said she isn’t perfect and she knows of a healthier lifestyle than she is living now.
“I used to wake up earlier to come in [to the school] and work out,” Schuler said. “But I just wasn’t getting enough sleep, and as much as I preach a healthy lifestyle, I would say I’m not a good example of a healthy lifestyle right now.”
Even with her demanding schedule, Schuler said she aspires to do even more in the future.

“There’s so much I want to do,” Schuler said. “I love learning other languages [and traveling]. So [I want to do] more of that. I also really enjoy music, …so there [are] things I want to finish, and things I don’t have enough time for. I also want to spend more time with the people close to me.”

Now, it’s easy to look at that article and see the Freudian slips. Actually they are quite obvious and funny if you think about it. The trick is in learning to read between the lines without the benefit of hindsight so you can avoid peril. If we can learn anything from articles like this one, it’s that whenever you listen to a public official of any kind, listen carefully to what they tell you and how they say it. Because you may save yourself a lot of headache if you listen to that little voice that goes off in the back of your head instead of ignoring it out of convenience.

  2. You call them Freudian slips. But I could go through your posts and bold random text to make it look like your subconscious was trying to say something. Hell, anyone could. I’ve had Schuler as a teacher before, as has my sister, my friends, and even my sisters friends. We all agree that this is something that Schuler would NOT do. Would you not agree that if you spent an hour every weekday for months that you wouldn’t get the gist of what kind of person they were? I want to give you some extra information, that I, and several other students know of, and I want you to write a post with this new information. Would you give it a shot?

    1. I think some people hide bad things even from themselves. But like I said, she’s innocent until proven guilty. In that case, it would be the students that made statements against her, and they’d be in serious trouble. But if you have something that defends her reputation I’d be happy to put it up. Depending on how credible it is, I’d probably pass it along to the media as well. Be careful though. I’m sure that your teacher wasn’t a bad, evil person, and probably had good intentions like a lot of people do. She could not have embarked on a sexual addiction of a sort without a lot of people knowing because in a school someone will always leak the info. So I’d be interested to know why you and your friends agree she did not do anything. In that case someone, or many people set her up, and that does happen, and is a far worse crime.

    1. An idiot wouldn’t be able to see Freudian slips like it’s apparent you can’t (Ms.-I-don’t-have-the-guts-to-use-my-real-name-person.) An idiot wouldn’t see impropriety which is obvious and right in front of their faces, like you can’t. And an idiot wouldn’t have the desire to do anything about it when something bad when does happen. An idiot would also take an apologist position on something that is obviously wrong. Oh, wait, that fits your description also. So who’s the idiot? LOL

      Oh, and I’m glad you were around when my parents were doing the funky mamba. He tried to pull it out in time, but just didn’t make it. I’m a determined being. It gives me great pleasure to find that you’re disappointed in the result. And I’ll promise you that you’ll even be more disappointed before I’m finished.

      And for you and others that think its ok for just one or two incidents to occur when you have a lot of employees are the kind of people that are guilty of it occurring at all. If one plane goes down it’s one too many. If one public official commits impropriety against a community it’s one too many. We don’t want to hear, “oh, it’s just a few bad apples.” We want to hear, “we learned of this activity and took proactive action to terminate the guilty individual.” Not to come out in hindsight, hoping the story doesn’t break, to say you’re sorry after the public found out.

    1. Thanks Amberr! That article was very controversial, as was that story when it first came out, and there were a lot of factions who wished to keep the story under the covers. So they attack anything they can to keep people from bringing things to the surface.

    My fellow teachers, I am deeply troubled and upset about Ms. Stefulic’s remark that I control women by putting my tongue down women’s throats against their will and that I have bragged about this in the staff room. I have never met Ms. Gordy Stefulic outside of school (never alone) and certainly, it is not the kind of conversation I would have with any person, period. I have too much respect for women and have a very long history in these matters. Nevertheless, I am upset and deeply troubled by Ms. Stefulic’s behavior and state of mind! I fear for the school and the Board! Does anyone have suggestions?
