Texas substitute teacher suspended for ‘disturbing’ teaching assignment

Vaseline 2 months ago

A Texas substitute theater arts teacher is under investigation and was suspended Friday over concerns about a teaching assignment.

Hays CISD says the sub allegedly instructed Johnson High School students to perform a puppet show that involved killing one of the puppets. They added that a group of students said the performance may have involved a mass shooting.

Hays CISD apologized to students and parents, calling the teacher’s behavior “disturbing and unacceptable.”

The teacher was hired by Hays CISD in January 2024.

An investigation is still ongoing and it is still unclear whether that was the specific assignment.
