How a local private school unknowingly hired a teacher with a decades-long history of child molestation allegations

T

he teacher arrived with excellent credentials and more than 20 years of experience in the classroom when he accepted a position last year at a private school in Menlo Park. What the school didn’t know — until informed by the Almanac — was that he also came with a trail of allegations of child molestation involving students he taught at previous schools in three states, starting in the 1970s. The school didn’t know because like most other schools, public and private, it conducted only the state-mandated criminal history check, and the teacher had never been charged with a crime or prosecuted. A simple Google search for the teacher’s name, however, would have revealed a great deal and raised alarms. “We of course take these allegations seriously, and we will investigate them immediately,” the principal of the school wrote in an email to the Almanac after being informed of the prior allegations. “We will be treating this as a confidential personnel matter and will have no further comment.” Within a week, the teacher no longer worked at the school.

ally came about as a result of prospective hires listing online profiles, such as Twitter and LinkedIn accounts, on their applications. One human resources administrator at a school that conducts informal Internet searches described the state-mandated process as adequate, but not perfect. “I think the current process identifies people with criminal histories. Obviously if the person has never been arrested, it doesn’t help. Also people change over time. There is no way to predict the future,” she said. “I think reference checks are only slightly helpful. Because of legal problems, people may give very positive references, but will almost never say anything negative.” Teaching history

The Almanac was tipped off by a former friend and colleague of the teacher living out-of-state who had sought to reconnect with the teacher after losing contact years earlier. Much to the friend’s surprise, when she began searching the Internet for his name she came across several newspaper reports about molestation allegations.

When background checks miss the mark By Sandy Brundage

Hole in the safety net

Apart from schools conducting more careful background checks that include Internet searches, preventing similar experiences is easier said than done. According to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, the state maintains a confidential database of complaints against teachers in public schools, but can only publicly disclose “final adverse actions” taken. In this case, those actions would come about only after charges or convictions. As a result, the teacher referred to in this article retains his state teaching credential. The state doesn’t maintain a similar database for private schools, which don’t require teaching credentials and essentially operate as independent businesses, according to the California Department of Education. The Almanac surveyed public and private schools in Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Atherton, and Mountain View to find out whether any conducted a more thorough background check than mandated by state law. Administrators were more comfortable discussing their policies off the record. Only three of the 18 schools said they used Internet and social media searches as part of the hiring process. Of the schools that do, the searches gener-

When she tracked him down and found that he was still teaching, she became concerned and began reconnecting with other former colleagues and students to help her decide what to do. She discovered several of his former students who revealed that the teacher had molested them and who were willing to share their stories publicly. Three had previously filed police reports that led to investigations in California, including one within the last year about incidents that occurred during the 1970s. No charges have ever been brought because time allotted by the statute of limitations had passed. None of the victims has filed civil lawsuits against the teacher.

Joe Yarkin Joe Yarkin, beloved husband, father, grandfather, friend of many passed away March 7th, 2012 in Palo Alto. Joe possessed a wonderful, generous personality. With a positive attitude, warm smile and natural curiosity, he could connect to people from all walks of life, helping them feel important and appreciated. He was always passionate about learning new things and believed in living life to its fullest. As a businessman, Joe was highly respected for his integrity and compassionate nature. Joe was born to Sophie and Meyer Yudkofsky on May 22, 1922 on the Lower East Side of New York. His parents came from Bialystock, Poland in search of a better life. With seven children in the family, Joe was the first-born son, arriving after five girls, and right before his youngest brother. As a child Joe had a vivid imagination, making up stories to tell his friends. He watched cowboy movies every Saturday at the theatre. He loved to collect and trade baseball cards as well as listen to his hero, Lou Gehrig on the radio. After one year at CCNY, Joe was drafted into WWII. He fought in the Battle of the Bulge and was seriously wounded with shrapnel lodged in his skull. Always the fighter, he was lucky to survive. Upon returning from overseas, he set out for USC to continue his education, receiving a BA in Economics and a Masters of Public Administration. While at USC, he met and fell in love with Pearl Galpern , a beautiful law student, also from New York, and they married in 1948. While still in school, Joe was accepted into the public policy internship program at the Coro Foundation. Inspired by Don Fletcher, the co-founder of Coro, Joe gained the self-confidence and a desire to do something meaningful in life and to pursue his passion. After completing the internship and the Masters in Public Administration Joe and Pearl returned to the Bay Area. Joe began his career working for the Home Builders Association of San Francisco, a secure and highly desired job. However, Joe’s passion was to own his own business and in 1957 he took a huge risk starting Yarkin

Realty and becoming his own boss. Palo Alto was a small town and Joe knew everybody! Joe’s success in business was earned the old-fashioned way: with hard work, honesty and honorable business practices, and especially through his vibrant, positive personality and his wonderful way with people. In the mid 1980’s Joe began to pursue other interests. He loved playing tennis, running with his group, practicing yoga, meditating, playing poker and bridge and practicing a healthy life-style. Joe and Pearl traveled all over the world and shared their adventures with friends and family. Joe loved summers at Rio Del Mar Beach and wintering in Palm Springs. Joe believed in giving back to the community. He was a past President of the Palo Alto Board of Realtors, served on the Board of the JCC, joyfully involved in the downtown Farmers Market and a founding and lifelong member of Beth Am and a member of the Kiwanis Club of Palo Alto for 40 years. At the center of Joe’s life was his family. He was devoted to his wife Pearl and took much pride in his seven children, their families and all 10 grandchildren. Joe is survived by Pearl and their children: Neva Yarkin, Allan Yarkin (Ray Ellen Yarkin) of Miami Beach, Mark Yarkin (Terri Yarkin)of Danville, Kerry Yarkin, Don Yarkin, Burt Yarkin ( Karen Yarkin) of Piedmont, and Matt Yarkin and by his grandchildren Adi, Mayaan, Sophie, Genna, Brent, Justin, Ilana, Sarah and twins Nathan and Kaylee. The memory of a good man is a blessing forever. There will be a celebration of Joe’s life at the Luci Stern Community Center on Saturday, May 19th, between 2:005:00. PA I D

“If I want a Best Seller, I advertise in the Almanac and the Weekly.” – Lyn Jason Cobb As a Realtor serving Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Atherton, Portola Valley and Woodside, I do my utmost to provide extraordinary service to my clients. The Almanac and the Palo Alto Weekly is always where I advertise first because I like the home delivery, editorial focus, and it is a great value. I have always had great results promoting open homes in the Palo Alto Weekly and The Almanac, and I also run in special publications like Spring and Fall Real Estate, Neighborhoods and Info Menlo because of the great coverage and online presence. I am also a big believer in the Palo Alto Weekly’s Open Home Guide, which is by far the most accurate and comprehensive. I’ve had many buyers bring in the guide to my ‘Open Homes’ to see what I have listed.”

The property heretofore described is being sold “as is”. The following statements; NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS and NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER are statutory notices for all one to four single family residences and a courtesy notice for all other types of properties. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks invovled in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, check drawn by state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 to the Financial code and authorized to do business in this state, will be held by duly appointed trustee. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the note(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below. The amount may be greater on the day of sale. BENEFICIARY MAY ELECT TO BID LESS THAN THE TOTAL AMOUNT DUE. Trustor(s): SIUA MAHONI, AN UNMARRIED MAN Recorded: 06/23/2006 as Instrument No. 2006093885 of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of SAN MATEO County, California; Date of Sale: 4/30/2012 at 12:30 PM Place of Sale: At the Marshall St. entrance to the Hall of Justice and Records, 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA 94063 Amount of unpaid balance and other charges: $688,693.45 The purported property address is: 1221 Sevier Ave, Menlo Park, CA 94025 Assessor's Parcel No. 062-084230-2 NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-573-1965 for information regarding the trustee's sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan. com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-09239909-BL. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled

sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein.
