Primary School Teacher Catches Herself in the Act (Video)

February 27, 2014


I always appreciate it when a school community comes to the defense of a disgraced teacher.

It is important for us to understand that good teachers often make bad mistakes, just like good stockbrokers and company executives do. But bad mistakes in every sphere often leads to a termination of contract, no matter how much that person was regarded or liked.

Here, we have a odd case of a teacher filming herself taunting an autistic child who is stuck in a chair. This would have to be one of the most bizarre ways of getting caught being completely unprofessional:

A PRIMARY school teacher who used her mobile phone to record a 10-year-old boy with Asperger’s syndrome as he struggled to free himself from a chair may be fired.

Nicole McVey, who teaches the fifth grade at Oaktree Elementary School in Goodrich, Michigan, is heard mocking the youngster, asking him, “Wanna be tasered?”

Even the school principal Michael Ellis gets in on the act, telling the child: “It’s not really an emergency in their book,” after Ms McVey states that maintenance is on the way.

According to the New York Daily News, Ms McVey then emailed the incriminating video to school colleagues — presumably thinking they would find it funny — who forwarded it to school administrators.

Mr Ellis has since resigned and there are now calls for Ms McVey to be sacked. But the teacher still has the support of some parents and the incident has divided the local community.

“You hear of bullying by other students and other kids in class … but I have never had a case with teachers and administrators bullying,” the boy’s family lawyer, Patrick Greenfelder, told the New York Daily News.

Mr Greenfelder also revealed the family may take civil action against the school.

Goodrich School Board Superintendent Scott Bogner told ABC 12 that an investigation into the incident was under way.

Poor Judgement by a Potentially Good Teacher

February 15, 2013

Give this teacher a second chance. He made an extremely poor choice but his intentions to make his lessons more engaging are extremely noteworthy:

A history lesson took a turn for the worst recently when a Texas middle school teacher opted to show, rather than tell.

According to multiple reports, the Schrade Middle School history teacher attempted to lasso student volunteers with a rope during a lesson on cowboys and herding methods.

Footage of the teacher’s lasso lesson, captured on a cell phone by seventh-grade student Tristan McKissick and shared with local station WFAA, shows a man lassoing a student in an open field. The young boy, who is wearing a hooded sweatshirt, falls to the ground amid laughter from other classmates after the rope is tossed around his neck and shoulders.

A 13-year-old student suffered bruises to his neck following the incident.

As the Dallas Observer notes, the history lesson was publicized after the bruised student’s parents “complained to the school and local TV station.”

The district placed the teacher on administrative leave Tuesday, pending the results of an investigation.

“It was not malicious. It was not intentional,” Garland Independent School District spokesman Chris Moore explained to the Dallas Morning News. “But it was very poor judgment.”

Graphic Video of Teen Attacked on Bus

February 10, 2013

We hear about fighting and bullying but not many understand how bad it can get and how passive the bystanders can be:

Florida 16-year-old Chase Cristia was standing up for a friend during lunch, when another J. W. Mitchell High School student threatened her last Friday, Bay News 9 reports. Though Cristia reported the incident to her assistant principal, “no imminent threat” was found and the sophomore was permitted to ride the bus home, as always.

According to authorities, it was there where a 17-year-old student attacked, while another student filmed the brutal school bus beating. The footage was later posted to Facebook.

Addressing how quickly the video was posted to Facebook, Pasco Superintendent Kurt Browning told local TV station WFLA, “I think it’s a reality of where we are today in our society and our culture.”

Two students allegedly involved have since been arrested on misdemeanor charges, but Cristia is still considerably shaken by the horrific incident that has been shared countless times on social media networks.

She returned to school on Wednesday, but left early after she was subjected to teasing from classmates, Tampa Bay Online reports.

Though the graphic video in which Cristia is beaten by a fellow classmate on a moving school bus is only 16 seconds long, it will live on the Internet for years to come.

“It’s not like we can recall them,” Dennis Alfonso, an attorney for the Pasco County school board, told the Tampa Bay Times.

According to school officials, the two sophomore students have also been suspended, and the district has launched an investigation into the incident, Fox 13 reports.

Cristia and her mother are pressing charges against the female students involved, and Cristia’s mother also intends to file a restraining order against the two on behalf of her daughter.

However, in an interesting change of events, Cristia told ABC News that she received a brief apology note from her attacker Wednesday morning.

“I’m sorry. I am so sorry, Chase,” the note reportedly read.
