Teacher in T-shirt case reads letter at assembly

Within hours of Samantha Pawlucy's return to Charles Carroll High School, the teacher she said publicly humiliated her over a Romney T-shirt returned as well, reading from a letter at a brief assembly.

Lynette Gaymon, Pawlucy's former geometry teacher, visited the school Tuesday morning, the district's spokesperson confirmed.

The teacher read from a letter she wrote, originally distributed to teachers with the intention of having it read aloud to students, a person attending the assembly said.

Instead, the teacher came to the Port Richmond school to personally address students.

"What I meant as a light and humorous remark during class has developed into a huge conflict between students, faculty, parents and neighbors," the letter reads. "I truly regret that we have come to this point."

In the letter, Gaymon writes of her support for free expression and calls for civility in response to reported harassment and threats aimed at Pawlucy.

"I'm very disturbed by the negative and hateful words and messages that have been directed at Sam Pawlucy. The bullying of Sam-on Facebook, Twitter, or otherwise-has to stop," the letter reads.

The assembly took place shortly after the start of the school day, when a rally was held to support Pawlucy on her first day back at the school.

The sixteen-year-old sophomore has stayed out of school since Oct. 3, according to a statement from the Pawlucy family. Gaymon, who was transferred out of Pawlucy's geometery class, has also remained away from the school. One of her aunts said the family is concerned for Gaymon's safety. The aunt, who lives with Gaymon, said Gaymon will not return to school until the family decides she can do so safely.

The Gaymon family has reported getting a phone call that threatened them. They said they reported that threat, as well as other harassing phone calls, to police.

The Pawlucy family has also reported hearing of threats and harassment, and students shouted obscenities from school windows when they visited last Friday.

Pawlucy's father Richard said the student does not want the teacher fired, but also does not want to be in her class.

The assembly was held shortly after the start of school. A rally on the sidewalk in front of the school was held beginning at 7:45 to support Pawlucy's return, with around two dozen people holding flags, singing the national anthem, and shouting to support Pawlucy. Pawlucy read the beginning of the Declaration of Independence, and the group also recited the Pledge of Allegiance and sang "God Bless America."

Oh, save it. This kind of harrassment of conservative students has been going on in public schools since I attended.

What we have going on now was easily predicted, brought on by public school teachers who despise and suppress any point of view at odds with their union's.

In other words, "I was just poking fun but some of YOU took it the wrong way, and others of YOU took it too far."

She appears to be a typical liberal jerk who still thinks she did nothing wrong. She doesn't regret her remark or take responsibility for it; she regrets the result (out of her control).

Another academic liberal only apologizing because someone called her on it and she got caught.

She has no business being near students.

Like a wife beater or a child molester they all claim it was the first time something like this ever happened.

This apology is as hollow as the perverts denials on To Catch a Predator.

The teacher should be fired and school needs to pay $1 million in damages. Isn’t that the kind of thing that happens when a leftist is “offended”??

Hire the nastiest Philly attorney and sue the school district, the superintendent, the principal the teachers union and the teacher back to the stone age.

The Southern Poverty Law Center sued the KKK into extinction. Miss Pawlucy and her family ought to do the same for this school district and its bigots. It sounds as though the students are as bad as this teacher, so closing the school would be a public service for the future.

It might be funny to see this teacher become the target of a "Knock Out King" competition, where her molars get rattled with a vicious sucker-punch from some ignorant, inbred, spray-paint-addicted, "ask"-mispronouncing, Obama-voting, convenience-store-robbing Amish dude named "LaFreddy."

You know, one of those guys who smells like a just-opened bag of potato chips, or like your kitchen an hour after you boil some broccoli?

LMAO!!!

Good for her, good for her parents, I’m sure there are better options out there and as for the teacher, she should be fired, but I know it won’t happen.

Once again, thank you UK news. She told her take the shirt off and compared it to wearing KKK robes. We didn’t even learn the teacher’s name until now, thanks to her union I’m supposing, while the minor student was placed in the spotlight.

“What I meant as a light and humorous remark during class has developed into a huge conflict between students, faculty, parents and neighbors,” the letter reads. “I truly regret that we have come to this point.”

This is really surprising, to learn that we all overreacted—big-time—and we should tell her how sorry we all are for calling her on this minor faux paux, this little attempt at humor on her part ... that’s the way I understand her insincere, bullshite apology.

It looks like Charles Carroll high school’s math scores could be improved.
http://www.trulia.com/schools/PA-Philadelphia/Charles_Carroll_High_School/
Maybe their teachers spend too much time on politics.

“Gaymon, who was transferred out of Pawlucy’s geometery class,” The teacher was transferred out of the student’s class? Teach doesn’t show up on their faculty list. http://webgui.phila.k12.pa.us/schools/c/carroll/our-faculty—staff
Good! Maybe they’ll hire someone who teaches more Euclidean geometry and preaches less Obama/Holder bigotry.

Thank goodness we have our post-racial wonder-president lowering the Earth’s temperature and ocean levels or things could be a lot worse. s//////

This incident reminds one of what started happening to white farmers in Africa. The blacks started taunting them, ratcheting up the violence to full blown torture and murders. This teacher has the same mentality, and will probably be torturing and killing whites in the near future unless checked now. Fire her!

She should be fired, IMO.
