I wouldn't say I saw through Mr. Tefft's actions until I was much older; when I was 12,13,14 I thought it was great that he was willing to treat us like we were adults (as I saw it at that age). I had to become an adult to realize how inappropriate it was. However, the part that frightens me is that there were, or rather came to be, adults aware of his behaviors, and they declined to take action.
