There must’ve been times when you’ve been tempted to treat a bothersome worker the same way this school teacher reprimanded one of her unruly students — by placing a “cone of shame” dog collar around someone’s neck.
But this phys ed teacher met the same fate you’d likely face if you decided to put a “cone of shame” around an employee’s neck.
She was suspended from her job.
Your warm and fuzzy feeling would be just as short-lived, unfortunately.
No matter how irritating a student — or an employee — can be, you’re not going to get away with this one.
The Zephyrhills (FL) High School science teacher is appealing her suspension.
How did the school find out about the classroom hijinks?
High-tech strikes again.
Students snapped photos of the youth being punished in the “cone of shame” on their phones and put them on Facebook.
Parents saw them and were appalled — and then contacted the school.
There’s a touch of irony here: The school board has been struggling for months to formulate a policy on what type of photos and video could be posted on students’ Facebook pages — and what was out of bounds.
The teacher got the cone of shame idea from the movie “Up,” she said.
Where do they go from here?
She’s requested a hearing before the district school board to appeal the superintendent’s decision.
Until then, she’s suspended.
There’s been no word on what she plans to wear to the hearing.
