Re: “Hail! Hail!

I am only so sorry that I broke my humorous bone and missed this tribute, Funny back around the early 80's I had a broken arm and Chuck pulled me up on stage to dance and signed my cast. I danced with him on stage and a few other girls joined us and we were mentioned in the Scene magazine! God bless Chuck Berry! Long live Rock N Roll!

Re: “Jury Awards Plaintiffs $392,750 in Sexual Abuse Cover-Up Case Involving Chagrin Falls Nanny School

I am a graduate of the English Nanny & Governess School - class of 1995. I am amazed at the feedback this lawsuit has brought. Some with valid points, others not. While having reviewed different articles regarding this lawsuit and the ensuing comments, I am dumbfounded as to the "lynch mob" mentally stated in the articles as well as the reviews of those articles. Quite frankly...I am appalled at the lack of respect and objectivity with which this case has generated. Former graduates and non-graduate students making references as if all the students and graduates felt the same. Please don't because that is not an accurate representation of the rest of us. I acknowledge that Mr. Gaylord and Mrs. Roth have made mistakes throughout their have I.

The school does have to re-evaluate some of the more valid comments made. For example:
- The school does put too much emphasis on profits and not enough on a "well-fit" match between client and graduate.
- Mr. Gaylord's demeanor can be putting off to some, but not all.
- Mrs. Roth does talk "above" the audience instead of to them. Yes, those of us who have heard her are aware of this, and yes, she does need to work on this. Having said this, SHE DOES NOT DESEERVE DISREPECTFUL AND UGLY COMMENTS - NO ONE DOES! SHE IS A HUMAN BEING LIKE YOU AND ME. PERIOD!!
- The English Nanny & Governess School does need to revamp their security screening for both potential students and clients.
- The communication between owners, G.M., staff, students, former and current graduates, and clients needs to more effective and efficient to prevent misunderstandings and to promote understanding.
- Everyone, and I do mean everyone, needs to take ownership of their part in all this including Ms. Cruz.
I understand that some of the examples stated seem trivial, but they are not. In order to get things fixed some times it means tackling the small stuff first.

My experiences with Mrs. Roth during my time at the school and at INA conferences have found her to be warm, pleasant, kind, professional, and quite frankly, a joy to be around. As to the school befitting this comment "...whether these families are physically, emotionally or sexually abusive seems to be fairly irrelevant" and "We are pressured to say whatever we have to say (even if it is untrue) in order to make a good impression on interviews." it is unfounded to say the least. The commenter was stating a feeling of how she is her perception not a FACT. My experiences and perceptions are completely different; therefore, I see Mr. Gaylord, Mrs. Roth, and the English Nanny & Governess School in a different light.
- RESPECT is given not earned and it is trust that is earned.
- For those of you who see and/or experienced the imperfectness of Mr. Gaylord, Mrs. Roth, and the ENGS please forgive them and move on. They are not monsters. And for those of us who are grateful to what they have done in the nanny industry... THEY NEED TO HEAR YOUR VOICES! Please step forward and speak.

Here is a quote worth remembering:
"Each of us is responsible for everything and to every human being."
- Dostoyevsky
