Shirley Bunn, a math teacher at Barnett Junior High School in Arlington, Texas, acknowledged she lost her temper on Sept. 30 while handing forms out to students in her class, Dallas-Fort Worth’s Fox 4 reported. According to public records, a disruptive student was repeatedly requesting a form printed in Spanish by saying,“I’m Mexican. I’m Mexican.” Bunn, a two-time “Teacher of the Year” with 24 years of teaching experience, attempted to tell the student he could get the form in the office but he continued to repeat,“I’m Mexican.”“[Then] go back to Mexico,” Bunn shot back".
I think that the school board over reacted. I tell you that our priorities are really screwed up when a teacher has to fight for her job because she exercised her freedom of speech and someone got their feelings hurt.
