Girard teacher facing charge placed on leave

Posted: Updated:
GIRARD, Ohio -

A teacher in the Girard City School system is on paid leave while he waits for a court hearing on a charge of disorderly conduct.

According to municipal court records, the charge was filed last week against 38-year-old Daniel Nagle Jr. of Struthers.

State records show that Nagle is a 7th and 8th grade math teacher in the Girard City School system.

Girard police say they investigated a complaint filed by Junior High School Principal Jen Santangelo on September 27 when she told police that she was in fear for her safety because Nagle was extremely upset.

Nagle had become disorderly and disruptive on this occasion, as well as at an earlier time, according to the report, which says the behavior allegedly occurred in school where students could have witnessed the incident.

A Junior High School teacher told police that Nagle was upset about being disciplined by Principal Santangelo, who told police that Nagle was in her office “balling” up the disciplinary memo and voicing his displeasure about receiving it.

Superintendent Dave Cappuzzello had police escort Nagle from the building, at which time Nagle told an officer that he was feeling ill and that's what led to him being disciplined.

According to the police report, Nagle told a fellow teacher that he was “going to get her”, referring to the principal.

Asked the reason for what prompted the disciplinary action against Nagle, Superintendent Cappuzzello tells 21 News he is not at liberty to discuss personnel matters.

A summons has been issued to Nagle to appear in Girard Municipal Court on October 25.

Nagle has been licensed to teach since 2000.
