St. Paul teacher speaks of struggles as he begins legal action against district


St. Paul teacher John Ekblad has no memory of a Dec. 4 attack by a student that put him in the hospital with a concussion.

But he is well aware of the aftereffects.

Headaches, 24/7, he said. Numbness in his right arm. A loss of hearing in his right ear.

“I’m kind of broken right now,” Ekblad told reporters Tuesday — a day after his attorneys filed a claim against the district, saying it created an unsafe environment for students, teachers and other staff members.
