A mother was left furious after a nursery teacher wrote on her toddler’s stomach to remind her to read the report they’ve previously provided.
As 23-year-old single-mother-of-two Heather Chisum explained, her toddler’s teacher wrote on the child using a waterproof marker after she forgot to read her report due to being extremely busy.
After spotting the note that read “Mom I’m out of diapers pls read my report,” the young mum shared the incident on Facebook where fellow parents agreed that the teacher working at the Children’s Education Center on Sanibel Island should get fired.
“I’m a single mom with a full-time job and two very young children. SUE ME FOR NOT READING THE REPORT EVERY SINGLE DAY,” the outraged mum wrote in her Facebook post.
“I guess yesterday they wrote on his report that he needs diapers, and I failed to see that.
Now keep in mind, I see several teachers at drop off and several at pick up, if I failed to see that he needs diapers a simple, ‘Hey, your son needs diapers maybe you missed the report’ would have done the trick.From any of the many teachers there I see daily.
“But instead, I change his diaper this afternoon AND SEE THIS WRITTEN ON MY SON WITH MARKER.
You can’t even see all of it in the pic […] I’ve scrubbed it with several baby wipes and it’s not coming off.I had plans to take them to the beach to play, and now I can’t because my son has writing all over him. ”
As Heather went on to claim, the nursery teacher in question has previously done the same thing.
After the incident went viral, the executive director of the nursery apologized and confirmed that the controversial teacher had been fired.
“We are aware of the incident at the school, and we are terribly sorry for the distress it has caused the family involved as well as all of our families. It was a breach of our professional ethics on the part of the teacher,” Cindy Carter DeCosta said according to Fort Myers News-Press.
“The school has taken immediate action to remove the teacher from the school. We are reviewing protocols already in place to ensure that nothing like this occurs again.”
