Florida temporarily bans teacher after disparaging comments

The former middle school teacher cannot teach in Florida until at least next summer.

A former Florida middle school teacher has been banned from teaching in the state until at least next summer after being accused of making disparaging and anti-immigrant comments to students.

The Education Practices Commission suspended the license of Susan Oyer, 54, last week for remarks she made to students at Boca Raton Middle School, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.

Oyer is accused of telling students that she was going to “call immigration on you,” and that she was surprised their parents “haven’t thrown you to a wall,” according to the report.

If Oyer wants to teach again, she must pay a $1,000 fine and complete a course on classroom management.

1. As a retired educator, I believe that woman is a disgrace to the profession.

She should never be allowed in the classroom again.

2. My teaching career ended when I offended a bigoted 13-year old student.

This was in a parochial school.

The girl is now a Registered Nurse and her mom is on the local school board. Whenever she runs for re-election, she's unopposed. My ballot always remains blank next to her name.
