A North Kingstown, RI teacher is now being investigated after a few middle school boys felt uneasy about the way he was interacting with their female counterparts and took the initiative to do something about it.

It began as early as sixth grade. The boys noticed behavior they weren’t comfortable with from the beginning.  On various occasions, they witnessed their teacher at Davisville Middle School, who was also a coach and involved in several extracurricular activities, leering at some of the girls, giving them pet names, and even prompting them to dance for him.  The boys, on the other hand, received the opposite treatment. They were met with cruelty and contempt from the educator.
