Middle school teacher in NC suspended for profane rant

A middle school teacher in Durham, North Carolina was suspended recently after she was found using profanity while ranting in one of her classes, an article of WNCN reported on November 11.

A statement coming from Superintendent Bert L’Homme revealed that teacher Majonica Haithcox was suspended after one of her students recorded an incident in which she was expressing her dismay with the election outcome. Unfortunately, she did so in the classroom while using excessive profanity in her language. In the recording, the eighth-grade teacher at Shepard Middle School was heard venting her frustration to students using vulgar words. L’Homme also said that Haithcox’s action of using foul language in front of her students was intolerable.

Plano teacher accused of having inappropriate relationship with student

A 37-year-old Plano assistant band director is facing charges of having an inappropriate relationship with a student at Frisco Liberty High School back in 2008. The teenage girl was a senior in the band at the time of their alleged relationship.

Although the age of consent is 17 in Texas, a 2003 state law prohibits any primary or secondary educator from having a relationship with any person enrolled in his or her school. According to Star Local News, the school’s band director found the girl hiding in the man’s closet.

Both the band director and the assistant band director have resigned from the high school. An investigation by the State Board for Educator Certification is ongoing.
