Trans Florida Teacher Continued Working For Weeks After Threatening To Shoot Some Underperforming Students

A transgender Florida teacher upset over a hurtful online post was taken to a higher-up’s office for counseling — where she allegedly threatened to shoot some underperforming students.

The Fox Chapel Middle School teacher, who is a transgender woman married to a woman, told the school’s guidance counselor last month she was distressed because she “learned about a social media post where people were talking negatively about her sexual orientation,” according to an incident report obtained by The Post.

The teacher was sent to speak to the counselor because she had expressed to the assistant principal that she was having “bad thoughts” and wanted to shoot some students, the report states. During the meeting March 24, the teacher told the counselor she “wanted to shoot some students due to them not performing to their ability.”

The teacher then immediately corrected herself and said she would never harm a student. When later questioned by deputies, the teacher said she was nervous for her students who would be heading into high school next year because their grades were suffering.

Later that day, deputies collected three firearms and ammunition from the teacher’s home.

In a letter sent to families in the Hernando School District on Thursday, Superintendent John Stratton said an investigation is ongoing, and in the meantime, the teacher has been removed from “all student contact.”

A notice from the Florida Department of Education, however, revealed that the teacher had remained working at the school until the agency stepped in on Wednesday, prompting complaints from parents who feel the district has been misleading them about what actually happened.
