Some Teachers Just Desperately Want to get Fired



Yesterday I wrote a post about a teacher unfairly on the brink of losing her job. Today I’m writing about one that probably never deserved to have one in the first place:

As an RE teacher it was her job to enlighten pupils about Christian values and the beliefs of other religions.

Instead, Catherine Reynolds encouraged her class to have lots of sex and ‘sleep around’ before marriage.

In expletive-ridden lessons, she told pupils to ‘stop bloody talking’, ‘sit on your a***’ and warned them: ‘If you don’t want to learn RE, you can p*** off’.

An investigation into her behaviour also found she posted offensive comments on her Facebook page. Following a parents evening she wrote: ‘That was the most f****** horrendous evening of my life’, and branded parents ‘retarded’.

Yesterday Reynolds, 27, was banned from the classroom for five years after Michael Gove decided she was a disgrace to the profession.

Describing her conduct as unacceptable, the Education Secretary declared it fell seriously short of that expected of a teacher and added that a disciplinary panel had struggled to identify any ‘understanding, insight or remorse’.

Reynolds taught RE at Saddleworth School near Oldham, having joined the state-run secondary as a newly-qualified teacher in 2008.

The Manchester University graduate initially showed promise, and was feted by pupils on a ‘rate my teacher’ website.

However, she got into trouble after her Facebook comments of September 2010 came to light, a report by a Teachers Agency panel found.

These included: ‘F****** retarded parents’ followed by: ‘That’s because only eejits pick RE’.

Further complaints followed in January and March 2011, the panel said.

Reynolds made numerous references to ‘sex from a personal perspective’ and told one pupil ‘not to get married because then you can’t sleep around’ and that ‘you should have sex all the time’.

In one lesson, she recounted a visit to Amsterdam in which she saw a sex show involving a horse and a woman and revealed she had been for a naked massage.

She used inappropriate language on a regular basis, the report found, including a string of swear words used to describe various people. One pupil was apparently told to ‘F*** off’.

Reynolds, who is married with a one-year-old daughter, told her class of taking a morning-after pill and of having a relationship with an older man.

She also showed pupils the tattoos on her lower back and her thigh and played them ‘inappropriate videos’.

Question: How on earth did she last this long?
