    I am a student at SMA, and I personally had CPT Daughtry as my ALG 1 teacher my Freshmen year, not to mention when I took the State EOC's he was also instructing the students on test day for me both my Sophomore and Junior year; by no means does this man deserve the punishment he has; I've said it a hundred times, and I will keep on preaching from afar to the Sarasota County School Board and adults alike- this man deserves to be at SMA more then anyone else- I am a terrible learner when it comes to math, I suffer from Short-Term Memory and I always seem to forget how to do the problems the way there instructed, but somehow CPT Daughtry spent those countless hours with me to make 110% sure I would pass his class- and guess what Sarasota? I did! I couldn't believe it- and to this day I can't thank him enough for what he's done for me and countless other students at SMA. The School Board is wrong- I'm disgusted at what both the Board and Sarasota Military Academy have done to this man who has done nothing but go out of his way to help others. If you take him out of the job you should take countless other teachers out of that school as well- they have done worst things more commonly then CPT Daughtry has ever done- so much for fairness- so much for second chances SMA! Lets start firing our teachers instead of taking care of the real problem at hand, the student(s) who caused this action to happen- now that is wrong all on it's own. Is this what society is turning to? If you ask me students need the discipline in their life there obviously lacking. The student body will not let what has happened stay this way- we all keep striving for one thing in life- one thing CPT Daughtry showed us to keep doing; and that's striving for our dreams no matter what society tells us or makes us think we can and cannot do. Lets become who we wish to be- and lets get our beloved teacher back SMA!!
