Skip to comments.This kindergarten teacher took a little girl’s shirt off… TO PUNISH HER
Posted on 01/18/2014 10:24:32 AM PST by Morgana
he Daily Callers worst teacher of the week is a no-brainer this time: its Thomas Washburn, an Arizona kindergarten teacher who was yelling at all the kids in his class. Then, when one little girl got scared and hid her face in her shirt, Washburn allegedly removed her shirt completely, leaving her naked from the waist up.
The little girl is six years old, reports local television station KTVK.
The incident occurred on Wednesday at Adams Elementary School in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa.
Police say Washburn, 54, was hollering at the 25 kids in his class for some reason. The little girl, described by her mother as developmentally delayed due to a premature birth, was frightened. Consequently, she hid her face down in her shirt.
Washburn did not like this response. He told the girl to stop hiding her face. She didnt listen, probably because she was even more scared.

Why is a 54 year old man teaching kindergarten?
This guy should lose his job immediately and never be able to teach children again.
You think he did this because he’s a 54 year old man? What are the men in your life like?
‘cause he’s a Democrat?
You it’s just me, maybe but I prefer a woman teach Kindergarten. In fact call me sexist if you want to but really that is a “woman’s job” to handle children that small.
You’re not sexist. You’re simply right.
What a creepy freak.

The little girl is not the one in this story with developmental issues.

With a baseball bat.
Exactly. I didn’t have a male teacher until 6th grade.
My 1st grade teacher locked me in the class bathroom for 10 minutes with another kid for racing down the hall after last bell.
She threatened to put diapers on us for acting like babies.
It didn’t happen and we went home. This was 1970.
We never raced down the hall again. :^)
Exactly what I was thinking.
Dont forget CSC, 1st degree.
Something seriously wrong with anyone who would think to punish a child by making her remove her shirt.
public school is child abuse, pure and simple
Eyes of a drinker
I don’t think I know what CSC is ..
For those saying that only women should teach young children, sorry, but it’s going to depend on the woman. Feminist teachers and administrators heap abuse on little boys in the school system. I have no doubt they would castrate them if allowed. Instead, they merely pressure the parents into drugging them into being little zombies. I would prefer that my sons never have another woman teach them any subject. It doesn’t excuse this creep, but automatically thinking women are better teachers is ..... sorry to say it, stupid.
This is why putting criminals in stocks in the public square worked. Let the citizens decide how much stuff they want to pummel the miscreant with based on the crime. It also helps with all the criminals whose family claims they are such a nice person. Families were allowed to place themselves between the perp and the citizens so they would take a pummelling also.
No, I don’t think that he did it because he’s a man, but I think that a woman is more nurturing and less likely to act in such a cold vindictive way.
Actually, it was just plain foolish to even touch the girl, let alone remove her top. It is possible that the incident is not exactly as described, that the child was not cowering, but covering face to taunt the teacher, but his reaction was just plain stupid.
I remembering visiting a home for “orphan” or problem kids or something. Just a weekend, I don’t remember why.
Anyway, 2 boys tried to run away. Their punishment was no clothes, just wear trash bags. lol. Boys and girls had separate “houses”, of course.
For the kids who followed the rules, there was a pool, game room, horses... I remembered thinking that it wouldn’t be so bad. The only thing I might have had a problem with (much later anyway) was the Presbyterian Church attendance was mandatory. I’m Baptist.
That would be criminal sexual conduct. It covers pretty much everything from rape to indecent exposure and such.
eyedigress your story brought back memories of my first grade teacher. She did crap like that to students. By today’s standards she’s be on the 6pm news and in jail or be sued if not both.
We think there is something “seriously wrong” with him? I wonder if he is don’t the same crap to the kids that was done to him in the 1970’s? I can see a teacher doing this in the 1970’s! Maybe not to a female student but to a male one. Difference here is he’s a male teacher and this is the year 2014. If you think about it he is old enough to remember 1970’s type of punishments. He figured if it worked for us it works for them? Yea he was not thinking.
This story, indeed is nauseating. And to think my dh lost his teaching position (at a public school), for explaining to a student, who asked when they were discussing the elections, that “most Republicans think abortion is murder.” That’s it! Dh was fired! After ten years of solid work!
what a class A jerk
In this era of “non-bullying hysteria” I have to say this child was bullied.
Did anyone check his cell phone?

“On a personal note, having been certified for foster care and licensed for adoption, I am looking forward to becoming a single father for the first time and am waiting the placement of children in my home. “
Hopefully this episode stops him from any type of adoption!
Take him behind a shed and put this sick bas-TURD to sleep forever!
Men should not teach elementary school because too many of them turn out to be pedophiles.
Let me guess..Registered Democrat and he has tenure
LOL, yes, she would appear to be acceptable.
Bump! Stripes suit him.

Why is a 54 year old man teaching kindergarten?
Because the pajama guy job was taken ?

Important things to consider before using an acronym
Outline what the acronym means
Short forms aren’t always the best way to avoid redundancies. So, if you’re going to use acronyms in your business writing, remember: The first time you use an acronym in your document, the words should be written out with the short form placed in parentheses immediately after. This way, it’s clear to the readers exactly what the letters mean. Here’s an example:
“Maybe not to a female student but to a male one.”
To a 5 year old?
This is unacceptable. If the child is not behaving send her to the principal’s office. Make her sit in the corner. Removing a person’s clothes pretty much constitutes assault and I hope the kid’s parents press as many charges and file as many suits as they can.
“Did anyone check his cell phone? “
This is not normal behavior for a 54 year old man. Anyone who has never met a man that could be trusted around children needs to make some serious changes in their life. This is not normal.
I would imagine that if ANY 54 year old man took clothes off my 6 year old child he and I would have some serious problems.
Kind of like going home (in my day) and saying “Sister Mary ___ hit/slapped/fill in the blank” and the first reaction is YOU get it again. THEN the parent guardian etc checks in with Sister Mary ______ to get her side of the story.
When returning to school the next day, Sister Mary _____ and you would have a little talk about ‘carrying tales home from school’.
I had my share of rulers on the knuckles and ‘kissed’ the Cross on occasion but didn’t really ‘share’ with my parent(s).
In those days ‘working people’ in that part of NYS tended to be Democrats - I guess because the D’s were for the little guy and the R’s were nothing but ‘rich Robber Barons’ that is probably one of the main reasons I ‘turned out so bad’....an 18 year old Irish Catholic from NY State that was a Republican or leaned in that direction, was surely demented. <: <: back in 1956 ..
I ‘liked Ike’ (and Nixon) but wasn’t so fond of JFK
Back in the 40’s/50’s parents just automatically thought Father ______ and Sister Mary _______ were DIRECT agents of God and if they ‘hit’ you, it was good enough reason (at first).
Hence, the main reason why parents in that era (and if carried over to some of the students) and beyond would have ‘trouble’ believing their Angelic Altar Boy Johnny if he said Father ________ were ‘touching him’.
So Johnny just wouldn’t ‘mention’ it.
However, if one of those big, burly Irish fathers that tended to be Police or Fire or Construction would have suspected Father _____ were ‘handling their son ‘that way’’, there surely would have been Hell to pay.
NOTHING that happens at school should be a secret from parents, ever
