'Proud Teacher' from Rhode Island Offers to Pay Anybody with COVID to Cough on Trump

A public school teacher from Rhode Island has sparked outrage after offering to pay someone infected with COVID-19 to cough on President Trump.

The teacher is said to teach English as a second language to middle school students. She used to teach in Massachusetts, but now teaches at Villa Nova Middle School in Rhode Island.

Her twitter handle is "Proud Teacher," but in response to all the backlash she received she cowardly took down her account.

According to a 2017 blog post by school choice activist Keri Rodrigues, the teacher also has a past of hostile behavior towards parents “weighing in" on education policies.

“Amy has even done her research to find out the name of the street I live on and even my phone number, which she calls on a regular basis,” Rodriguez wrote. “Now, I have no problem with people writing in to disagree with me, to correct my spelling and punctuation or to offer any kind of feedback. I’m tickled that people even read this little blog so I’m honored when people want to join the conversation. But threatening to come after me and my children where we live? That’s a bit much, no?”

Some teacher, huh?

There is no word yet as to whether the schools administrators will look into this and provide appropriate disciplinary action. We reached out to the school for comment, but we have not heard back.

Do you think is teacher should be fired for her disgusting remarks? Drop a comment below!
