Teacher Removed After Bizarre Incident At McGavock High:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A teacher was removed from McGavock High School after a bizarre incident in a classroom that forced the principal to call parents and explain what happened.

The incident happened in Donald Wood's 11th grade algebra class Friday. Video shot by a student in class showed Wood throwing two tables, a garbage can and a chair.

Officials said Wood was removed from the school on a stretcher and transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital. Wall said he had never experienced anything like it in his 32 years in education.

Mr. Woods is a good person. Seeing someone mentally break down before your eyes is not funny. He needs to have his mental health needs met, he doesn't need people laughing at him. He has suffered enough and he and his family have further been humiliated by the posting of this video. Shame on you, McGavock student, for posting this video.

I feel so sorry for this man. Those kids must have made his life hell!

I'm glad to see people are on the teacher's side. I could never deal with what these teachers deal with nowadays. I give him credit for sticking with it for 17 years before flipping out. This would have been me on my first day.

I've seen the affects of a mental disorder first-hand when I watched my father suddenly turn into a raving lunatic over the course of a few days. He is now on medication, but he has never been the same.

I hope this poor man is getting the proper care, because these problems are not always easy to diagnose.

Does he have a mental disorder, or was he driven to insanity by years of teaching kids who obviously don't care, and parents who don't care how their kids behave in school?

I agree, he's reaching out and speaking out. I do think it's kids nowadays who DO NOT care,a dn parents. I feel for him, as I have felt the same way - but due to ABUSE from someone. One can calm down, but it affects them for a long time being taunted by insane students.
