Conroe and The Woodlands, February 18 – As an ongoing indication of the poor management by administrators in the Conroe Independent School District (CISD), Richard Chiamulera, the Head Coach of the Lady Highlanders Junior Varsity Basketball team and a Woodlands High School English Teacher has allegedly had “an improper relationship with a student,” as internal school district documents reveal.
The Golden Hammer appreciates the two CISD employees who shared the documents with this newspaper, on the condition of anonymity, so that we could make the public aware of this very serious situation. There are, in fact, numerous teachers and at least one administrator of CISD who clearly are upset over the poor management practices of the district.
This newspaper has confirmed that a local law enforcement agency has issued a warrant for Chiamulera’s arrest. The Golden Hammer has also confirmed that administrators within CISD have known about this situation at least since the beginning of last week, i.e., Monday, February 11, 2019. Nevertheless, Chiamulera remains on the CISD’s payroll and there have been no actions to terminate his employment within the school district. An arrest of Chiamulera is imminent, according to a source who has requested anonymity inside of the local law enforcement agency.
Chiamulera has coached for nine seasons. Previous to coaching at The Woodlands, Chiamulera coached basketball and softball in Houston and Memphis, Tennessee. He also coached track and field in Michigan. He received a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education and English from Northern Michigan University in 2011 and a Master’s Degree from Walden University, an online school, in 2016. Chiamulera has held himself out as a specialist in integrating technology into the curriculum.
It’s important to remember that, while the charges are very serious and reflect poorly on CISD’s leadership, especially the secrecy surrounding the situation, Chiamulera deserves his day in court both as to guilt or innocence and sentencing.
