    tara bagley is a piece of **** if she did what she is accused of doing to those young girls. Anyone with that much authority and influence on children should never have put them in that position. She is a disgusting person and should spend the rest of her life in prison. I feel very sorry for her husband and children, they will be scarred for life because of her actions.
