A Florida teacher is out of a job after throwing a XXX-themed party for a former student.
The party took place after school at Mater Lakes Academy in Northwest Miami-Dade on Oct. 18. Among the party favors were water bottles, candles, and even a hat that were all shaped like penises. Some of those in attendance were as young as 11 years old.
Students recorded the party on their phones, and controversy began after the clips hit the internet.
The mother of a young female student told 7 News Miami “In the videos, we see how they were preparing for the surprise party. And as the boy walked in, they surprised him with a hat that had a penis attached to the top and a string to be able to pull it so it can get erected.”
The teacher’s name has not been released but the school told 7 News that he or she has been fired. The school did not say whether it was the teacher who brought the adult themed items to the party.
School administrators said in a statement: “The number-one priority is the safety and well-being of our students and faculty. Once we became aware of the situation, we addressed it immediately and have taken the appropriate measures and the individual has been dismissed.”
The mother of the student claims her daughter was very distraught after the party, “She couldn’t sleep last night. She woke up crying,” she said. “It hurts that she’s being taught this at the school where I trust she’s gonna be taken care of.”
Another parent has said that they’ve contacted local police, who are now investigating the matter.
Inappropriate behavior by teachers with students is not a new phenomenon. There has been a rash of more serious cases cropping up over the last few years. In February, a Texas teacher pled guilty to two felony counts of having an improper relationship with a student.
In October 2015 a female physical education teacher was caught in bed with two female students at the same time. In another case from September 2015, a teacher was caught with one of her students after her husband hired a private detective to follow her.
