Middle School Teacher Fired After Kids Find Nude Selfies in Her Phone
I am trying to figure out exactly why she was fired. It wasn’t like she was sending the nudes to the kids, they stole her phone and were being nosey.
Shouldn’t the kids be the ones who should be punished? With that being said here is the story via Savannah Now.
The kids had gone through the 34-year-old business teacher’s Lekeshia Jones cellphone and found her stash of nude selfies. But instead of just gawking, giggling and gossiping about what they had seen, the girls snapped copies of the images with their phones, texted them to their friends and classmates and posted them on social media sites.
About a month later, Jones said, one of the girls felt guilty and came to her in tears to show her how their club prank had snowballed into a sordid school-wide social media sensation.
Wednesday, the Savannah-Chatham school board fired Jones for being irresponsible with her phone, for not properly handling or reporting the incident and for insubordination in the weeks that followed.
District officials testified Jones had given the students her cellphone password to call home, then left the phone unattended. They also said she did not report the incident but asked students to text the social media chatter back to her so she could track down the culprits on her own.
“I feel like I’m the victim,” Jones said.
Jones insists she is not in the wrong for storing her nude photos on her cellphone photo album and bringing it to work. She said her only mistake was trusting students to respect her privacy and fetch her scissors.
“I’m grown,” Jones said. “…Whatever is in my phone is my business … There is nothing in the policy about what you can or cannot have in your phone.”
Obviously she didn’t have the iPhone with the fingerprint lock. Wonder who she was sending the nudes to?
