A Clark-Shawnee teacher has appealed a school board decision to terminate his employment over allegations of inappropriate behavior toward female students.

Dennis Bruce Dahlberg [303 Dover Rd. Springfield, OH 45504-1105 - Home Phone: (937) 390-1941 Cell: (937) 408-4804], 35, was suspended with pay last week pending termination of his contract. He filed Friday to have a hearing on the decision.

Dahlberg is a social studies teacher at Shawnee High School, but he was reassigned in March to Possum Elementary as an in-school suspension supervisor.

Dahlberg's personnel file listed several complaints against him from female students.

In May 2008, a female student reported that he had sent her unwanted text messages, and in December, one student said he used her twice as an example when asking sexually-charged questions in front of a class. That student also reported he searched her purse in the classroom.

The board will hold a hearing in the next 20 to 30 days to hear the appeal.

...

According to records in his personnel file:

* In May, 2008, one female student reported that he had sent her unwanted text messages.

* In December, another female student claimed he used her twice as an example when asking sexually-charged questions in front of a class. She said he also searched her purse in the classroom.

* Also in December, a third student claimed he touched her on the back during class.

Did his classes at UD include Perverts 101?
