    Angry Substitute Teacher admits Molesting Girls

    Ontario police are investigating claims by a substitute elementary school teacher that he has molested between 100 and 200 girls in elementary schools where he has taught in the Inland Empire over the past three years....

    Eric Norman Olsen, 28, of Ontario, was arrested after a student at Berlyn Elementary School went to school authorities and reported seeing Olsen inappropriately touching a 10-year-old girl in a classroom over a period of two and a half hours.


    After that report, other students came forward and corroborated the student's claims.


    When police spoke with Olsen, they said he admitted to molesting the girl and made the claim that he had been molesting girls at schools where he has substituted.

    If he infact did molest 200 kids, that would be an average of 5 1/2 kids a month. Sick F...er

    What is going on with these male and female teachers in this age bracket anyway? It seems that everytime I listen to the news another teacher has struck.

    How could it be possible that this little girl is the first child that has said something about this teacher....out of all of the kids that he has molested?
    I wonder who she told...her mom or someone else and then they told? I'm surprised that this teacher has admitted that he has molested so many kids. If he hadn't said something no one would have ever known. Maybe he wants to be stopped or something. Well, want to or not he is stopped now. I hope he doesn't get a slap on the hand and his teacher's certificate taken away.

    Not to mention many school systems STINK. I find it a shame that homeschooling isn't as widely accepted as it should be.

    I heard something on the news the other night about this guy. The detective said something about the manner of his molestation. The kids may not have realized that they were being molested and that he was getting gratification from whatever he was doing to them. I'll have to find the updated story tonight. I'll post it tomorrow.

    The bar for substitue teachers is fairly low. School districts take people as subs that they would never accept as fulltime teachers--uncertified, untrained (other than a day or so perhaps of "training.") The work is uncertain and the pay while okay--does not provide a decent living. In some school districts, it is $50 a day. It is basically good parttime work--or temporary work for some people--so there is always a shortage.

    School districts are also notorious for banning a sub at one school and not making it district wide. They are desperate for subs for teachers, but that does not excuse them.

    As a fulltime teacher, I often did not take my sick leave because I wasn't sure who would be in my classroom--and I worked in a great district. So you can only imagine how the others fare.

    Until we demand better--and pay for it--we will find ourselves with these losers. There are costs that can be cut in schools,but salaries of teachers and subs are not those costs. Some schools hire "permanent subs." Those are teachers who agree to be available every day for subbing in particular schools. It's a great idea--but paying for it is another question. Not all principals are willing to sign on--or all district administrators.

    Good public schools are the backbone of a strong economy.

    But this was not the case with Eric Olsen, he had full credidentials and had passed all background, and other.........same as regular teachers. He like many others who have never been caught had no crimminal background.

    Out here, at least in my District Sub teachers make now about $150 a day for subbing, depending on the subject. Eric Olsen was teaching in Special Ed classes which makes this all more distrubing.

    SNIP:

    Additional charges may be filed against Olsen in connection with the new allegations within the next several days, Ortiz said. The speed with which that happens will depend on how quickly detectives in Rancho Cucamonga and Fontana complete their investigations, Ortiz said.

    During a short interview Sunday, Ortiz said allegations against Olsen might have surfaced sooner if a school district had notified police immediately when the alleged contacts were reported to them. He did not name the school district in question. "We're in contact with the school district to see where the lines of communication went down," Ortiz said.

    So there have been other children who complained about this man but the complaints didn't go any further then within the school...that is how I read this. So the fault goes right back to the people who were aware but did nothing about it. I wonder if the school thought that the kids were making things up because they were special ed kids?

    I wonder about the child who did bring this to light. Maybe her parents went straight to LE instead of to the school. If "whoever" at the school was aware of this yet didn't contact LE then someone's head should roll.

    Earlier complaints ignored?

    http://www.dailybulletin.com/news/ci_4149098

    Complaints surfaced nearly eight months ago about a substitute teacher who stands accused of molesting a 10-year-old girl in June during class.



    On Monday, Jacqueline Hunt questioned if the complaints made by her daughter and two others -- reports filed six months before the incident that resulted in Olsen's arrest -- were properly handled.

    "(School officials) led us to believe that it was handled," Hunt said. "But obviously if it was, maybe he wouldn't have been teaching anymore."

    Hunt declined to comment Monday on exactly what happened, but on an appearance for the "Today Show" Sunday, she reportedly said Olsen forced her daughter to sit on his lap during class.

    The report is similar to what police say Olsen did to a 10-year-old girl in June at the Berlyn School in Ontario. Police say Olsen had the girl sit on his lap, then stroked the girl's back under her shirt.

    Central School District Superintendent Sharon Nagel said Monday that after Hunt and two others complained Dec. 20, the district removed Olsen from its substitute list and forwarded a report to the San Bernardino County Department of Children's Services. Asked why police weren't notified, Nagel referred the question to a district lawyer who did not return phone calls.

    Police are investigating new accusations of sexual abuse against a substitute teacher who is already charged with molesting a 10-year-old Ontario school student, officials said Saturday.

    Authorities say the incidents were caught only because the other student saw and informed school officials, who called police. Several other students interviewed by police substantiated the witness account.
