The presence of a New Jersey art teacher drew criticism from parents who said their children were distracted from the lesson.
The parents went to the principal and said that their youngster was not paying attention in class because of the teacher’s curves.
The teacher, known as “Toy Box” on Instagram, became an internet star after the tale about her went viral.
The teacher expressed her surprise on Instagram Live that some parents wanted her out of the school due of her weight.
With the rhetorical inquiry “What do I seem like?” she argued with others about her perceived physical attractiveness. No matter how hard I try, I just simply do not deny how horrified and shocked I am by the very idea that this exists. At first I thought it was hilarious because of what it made me think.
I wonder if you have any idea how many educators share this sentiment. However, there are some educators who love what they do and do it well.
Please believe me when I say that those of us who want to be there make a difference, and I wish all of you parents the luck of having a teacher who enjoys her job and the students she teaches rather than seeing it as a means to an end.
In addition, she said on Instagram that people should “cut it out y’all,” referring to bullying, racism, and body shaming. Because of this insanity, I was awake for hours yesterday night. Do away with it.
She appreciated the help she received after some parents tried to have her expelled.
