Epitome of a bad teacher!
Kindergarten Teacher Suspended For Threatening Facebook Comments About Students
Memphis kindergarten teacher Tameka Gatewood is on unpaid suspension pending a hearing for comments she made about her students on Facebook, WMC-TV reports.
According to the station, her public posts include references to two of her Rainshaven Elemenary School kindergarteners arguing:
“How bout I blasted both of them. The girl in my class hair is nappy almost every day and the boy wears dirty clothes, face nasty and can’t even read. They didn’t bother nobody else when I got through with them.”
“What do you think you’re supposed to do? Bang! Bang! Shoot ’em up dammit! Just kidding!! For real tho – slap their ass back then Bang! Bang! Shoot ’em up dammit.”
Parents are furious. While the city of Memphis has a social media policy barring municipal employees from publicly posting comments that would negatively reflect the city — or place the city at risk for lawsuits — the rules don’t extend to school employees. Parents say that Gatewood should be fired and the district could use social media regulations.
“She needs to be up out of here. Because how can you do your job and that’s what you think about students?” parent Monica Watson told WMC-TV. “That’s ridiculous. I wouldn’t want anyone like that teaching my child, over them, trying to teach them the value of life…period.”
She should be fired just for her grammar in the facebook posts!
Secondly we need to making teaching one of the highest paid professions there is, but hold all teachers to a very high standard. Do this with the goal to attract the most intelligent among us to become teachers because the education level of the average person in this country has become a complete joke.
