News that a Pelham Middle School teacher from Yorktown has been arrested and charged by federal authorities with trying to arrange a sexual liaison with a 15-year-old “girl” over the Internet has residents in that school district and across the region buzzing.
He teaches at my son’s school. … What kind of monster tries to have sex with children?! That’s beyond disgusting,
one parent wrote.
These things happen, and we have to do the best we can to stop them. This was more of a lesson for students than for the adults that run the school. Hopefully, the students should now realize that they should report any odd behavior among teachers,
another reader said.
Several former and current students of Gregg Cavaluzzi are also weighing in.
Mr. Cav, why?,
wrote one, while several others talked about what they say was inappropriate behavior toward female students.
This guy is (or, rather, was) my teacher. Disgusting. He was often randomly quite friendly to girls. We sometimes joked about how he was creepy, but now we know the truth. School’s gonna be bizarre tomorrow. I hope he doesn’t come back.

Doesn’t anyone watch Dateline? They round people up like this by the dozens,
summed up one reader.
