One parent is upset because two of her daughters go to the middle school where he worked, and they were surprised by the arrest because they thought he was very nice. 

“He was around my child. My child was in a class with him so that makes me very upset,” said parent Araceliz Bonano. “So that means it could be my child just as it could be yours. That makes me feel very uncomfortable, and now, I’m going to have to [go] my child and see was… he inappropriate with her? We can’t trust the situation now at this point.”
