So the story behind this is that one of the most loved teachers at Mayo Senior High School has been suspended by Human Resources for swearing in class. Apparently he gave a girl an extension on a speech and when her time was up she still wasn't ready. He asked a few more people, and they weren't ready either. He then responded to this by saying "This is f***ing ridiculous." Mr. Jon Thorson is now on suspension by human resources for this language. Mayo High School would like the support to keep Jon Thorson at Mayo and have his punishment be lifted.


  • Anonymous Thorson is an absolute amazing teacher . He made Speech so much fun and exciting. I can honestly not thank him enough for how much of a difference he has made in my life. I think the world of him as a teacher and he didn't deserve this to happen. I hope we can continue to fight for an outstanding person like him.

  • Nina Arteaga I've never had him as a teacher sadly, but i always heard good things about him.

  • Jennifer Meyer Sometimes, a properly placed swear word gets the attention of slacker students. I'm a parent and I support Jon Thorson.
