Teacher Wins Harassment Suit

From the Sun:

"A Howard County jury yesterday awarded English teacher Michelle Maupin more than $235,000 in compensatory and punitive damages for harassment and retaliation during her time at Centennial High School in Ellicott City.

Maupin remains with the school system, teaching at Wilde Lake High School in Columbia.

The Howard County Board of Education is responsible for $225,000 of those damages, while former Centennial High School principals Lynda Mitic and Scott Pfeifer and English department leader Margaret Polek are responsible for a combined $12,000, according to Maupin's attorney, Mike Coyle."
