Former Biidaaban teacher has licence revoked

A former long-time teacher of Biidaaban elementary School in Sagamok-Anishnawbek First Nation has been found guilty of professional misconduct by the Ontario College of Teachers.

Paul Daniel Fox taught at the school for several years.

In February, the college revoked his teaching licence and imposed a $10,000 surcharge for payment of case-related costs.

Initial allegations were made that Fox had verbally and physically abused several students during his tenure. His licence to teach was suspended in 2017 while a police investigation was carried out.

According to Espanola court records, in 2018, he was charged with nine historical assault charges and granted a conditional sentence; having to pay a fine to victim services as well as receiving a peace bond not to contact any of the victims.

The identity of the victims is protected by a publication ban.
