The teacher who taped her student"s mouth shut
A mother of a Broward middle school student got upset after her 13-year-old daughter told her a teacher placed tape over her mouth. I came home from a hard day"s work to hear that my daughter had her mouth taped up unwillingly, said Leah Freel. Jazlyn Freel attends New Renaissance Middle School. She said her teacher placed tape over her mouth. She asked me to stop talking, and then a couple minutes went by, and I started to talk again, and she came to me and put it on my mouth, Jazlyn said. I had to cough, so I took the first piece off, so she went into her desk, and she took another piece out, and she put it on my mouth again. Jazlyn said the teacher also taped another student"s mouth, so they went to the administrator.
According to the 13-year-old student, the teacher told me to keep the tape on my mouth, and she told me that what happened in her classroom stayed in her classroom, and it was just a joke. Leah said she went to the school and was told that the teacher would be reassigned. I hope that this doesn"t happen to any other children, said the mother.
The teacher who published an erotic book featuring some of her students
An English teacher has been sacked after writing a racy novel which detailed her teenage pupils" sexual fantasies. Leonora Rustamova was suspended from her post prompting mass demonstrations by pupils and a campaign by parents to have her reinstated. But after a disciplinary hearing, governors have now decided to sack the teacher.
The story - Stop! Don"t Read This! - originally appeared on a self-publishing website.
Although it is claimed to be all invention, it features five genuine teenage pupils at Calder High School in Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire. It contains swearwords, has children skipping lessons, refers to a pupil flirting with a teacher and compares two youngsters to "gorgeous Mr Gay UK finalists". The story names several teachers, including real headmaster Stephen Ball, and features pupils missing lessons, stealing phones and setting themselves on fire.
One pupil is described as fantasizing and flirting with 39-year-old Miss Rustamova, while she says she would do anything for a smile from another. She writes: "It"s getting harder and harder to see them just as kids." Later she describes in the novel how the youngsters practice "orgasmic moans", which sound like "the soundtrack to teenage gay porn".
The teachers who gave lap dances during school event and the video went viral
The kids are calling it Two Teachers, One Chair, and it has all the makings of a YouTube hit.
But school administrators and parents are hard pressed to find humour in a graphic lap dance caught on video between two teachers at a spirit rally at Churchill High School in Winnipeg.
The two teachers, one of whom was identified by students as phys-ed instructor Chrystie Fitchner, have been sent home without pay after the spirit dance before 100 students as young as 13 years old. The routine began with the female teacher, sporting pigtails, seated on a chair, her legs spread, hips gyrating. Bumping beats played in the background and the male teacher approached between her legs, his hips swiveling to the beat.
Less than five seconds into the routine, a Grade 9 student and her friends went from giggling to staring at their sometimes very strict instructors in disbelief.
At first we were laughing and then it was like Oh that"s a little too far." But it went even further. The female teacher threw her head back and thrust her one leg out as the male teacher continued to dance over her. There was butt-slapping and further gyration. Then the man dipped his head down between her legs and simulated oral sex. That must have been an interesting class.
