STUDENT PETITION -Reinstate Ms. D'Amico Immediately
A Brownsville Area High School Spanish teacher has been suspended after someone posted pictures on Facebook of her with a male stripper at a bridal shower.
The Brownsville Area School District issued the 30-day unpaid suspension after school administrators eventually saw the pictures.
The teacher was fully clothed and was in the same frame when the pictures were taken. "She was caught in the photograph. She was in the picture and that was it." "She wasn't posing and she wasn't doing anything inappropriate. She was in the picture."
During this suspension the students have a substitute teacher who does not speak Spanish, FOR 6 OUT OF THEIR 9 WEEK GRADING PERIOD therefore the students’ education will suffer during this suspension. This is not the proper corrective action to be taken in this situation.
Our teachers should be able to have a private life. No crime or nothing illegal was done here, so why is she being singled out?
