A teacher who doesn’t speak a word of Spanish is suing her employers after they rejected her from a job - that teaches Spanish.
Tracy Rosner, who works at the Coral Reef Elementary school in Palmetto Bay, Florida, had applied for a position that included one hour of foreign language teaching a day.
The district rejected Rosner’s application on the grounds that she does not speak Spanish, kicking off a bizarre lawsuit.
Rosner claims she was being discriminated against because she couldn’t speak Spanish and insists that the one hour lesson could have been taught be someone else.
Her lawsuit insists she was “otherwise fully qualified” for the job and Rosner said that she was given extra teaching responsibilities as revenge for her application.
The lawsuit states: “As a direct and proximate result of the retaliation against Ms. Rosner, and the violation of her rights… Ms. Rosner was provided a less desirable position and has damages including emotional pain, suffering, inconvenience, mental anguish, [and] loss of enjoyment of life.”
