In Seminole County, FL, a high school teacher chose to go to his truck and take a powernap during lunch time. However, he failed to return to his classroom. After lunch, another teacher noticed that students were in the classroom, but their teacher was not. School officials found him in his truck, fast asleep. He’d overslept. It’s been reported that school officials are expected to ask school board members to suspend the teacher, whose been teaching in the district for over a decade without any other incidents, for one day without pay.
Where is the team support here?
School officials have each others backs when teachers sleep in their classrooms (when they fail to teach students) but they don’t have each others backs when they are found physically sleeping in the parking lot–away from their classroom.
