Teachers in 2017 have gotten way out of control! End of the year awards are suppose to honor students who excelled in school categories like academics, attendance, and great behavior. Middle school teacher took her class after Aguirre Junior High held their annual awards ceremony and privately hosted her own version of end of the school awards show.
"I was shocked,” Lizeth Villanueva, a 13-year-old student at Anthony Aguirre Junior High in Houston, told Click2Houston. “[The teacher] said, ‘Most likely to become a terrorist,’ and she said my name, and she gave me this.”
Other awards given out were "Most likely to become a murderer" "Most likely to blend with White People" "Most likely to date the whole school" "Most likely to become a nun" "Most likely to become a plumber (because his crack shows all the time) "and more that have yet to come forward.
This teacher is the AVID teacher, the teacher that suppose to create a positive peer group for students and teach life skills and great behavior for overall success. This is a huge disappointment for Houston education. Me being hispanic and the judgement we get from society and all the terrorists attacks that are going on all across the world is enough to show we need unity and a positive environment at least for a children who are our future.
Principal Eric Lathan released an apology on Twitter “These award statements and ideals are not representative of the Aguirre vision, mission and educational goals for its students,” Lathan wrote. “An investigation will be launched into these events.”
The student's mother said that Lathan apologized to them personally but she believes that the teacher should lose her job. What do ya'll think Beat listeners?
I hope the teachers at Anthony Aguirre Junior High in Channelview, Texas get fired. What a terrible thing to do to a 13 year old. #cowards— Amanda (@AKoldy) May 26, 2017
