Albuquerque Teacher In Trouble Over Facebook Post

Nov 6, 2013

Bernalillo County sheriff's deputies investigated an Albuquerque high school teacher's Facebook post that she wanted to "kill" students but determined the teacher was just frustrated by a classroom prank.

The Sheriff's Department says the Rio Grande High School teacher's name isn't being released because she wasn't arrested or charged.

However, the teacher is now on paid leave and a school district's discipline committee will consider her case.

Sheriff's deputies' reports say the teacher says she made the Facebook post because she was furious that a student had glued his shoes to the classroom floor and pulled up the tile.

A district administrator says the teacher told school officials that she never intended to harm students and didn't think her Facebook post would be taken seriously.
