Elementary School Teacher Makes Autistic Student Cry When She Snatches His Microphone During Thanksgiving Play — See How Parents Reacted!
How is this woman allowed to teach children? Educators are responsible for molding young minds, not inhibiting them.
A teacher at Nutter Fort Primary School recently proved she's much more of a garbage human than an educator when she rudely yanked the microphone away before an autistic student could say "gobble gobble" in the Thanksgiving play.
The young boy, named Caleb, was playing the turkey in the production, so it's not like the line would've been distracting or upsetting. It actually would have been a really cute way to close the show.
But, the West Virginia teacher horrified the young boy — and his parents — when she snatched the mic just as the child was leaning in for his big moment.
The little boy was so devastated that he yelled "Oh no!" on stage before bursting into tears. And his parents, Kent Squires and Amanda Riddle caught the disgusting snub and the following devastation all on camera.
Outraged, they took to Facebook to spread the word about the horrible excuse for a teacher, who Amanda tentatively identified as "Mrs. Linsey."
In his plea to Autism Speaks, Kent shared the video, writing:
