This is a work of creative nonfiction. I have recreated events and conversations from my memories of them and from hundreds of pages of emails and official documents created by school administrators, district officials and investigators. To maintain the privacy of the child who falsely accused me of physical abuse, I changed the names of all the people and places except my own. All events in this blog happened. I added nothing for literary effect. I recalled the conversations in as much detail as I could remember. In all cases, the essence of the conversations are accurate.
