Dance Teacher Contract With QAPR Not Renewed

Centreville did not renew the contract of Dr. Teri O’Meara, a dance instructor in the county’s recreation program. O’Meara’s job ends in November, and the county is looking for a replacement. Published reports say O’Meara repeatedly and openly complained about allegedly bad and unsanitary conditions in buildings where she taught. O’Meara also raised issues with the county about policies and procedures regarding collecting fees for recreation programs and allowing county employees to use vehicles for personal use, among other things. She believes she is not being renewed as retaliation for speaking up.
