HOUSTON - Michael Garza's parents say they weren't sure who to believe, their 8-year-old son or his reading teacher Savonya Depland Haston.
After Michael calls the reading teacher "ma'am," Haston is heard on the tape replying "I'm not your ma'am. If I owned you, and you were my slave, I would beat you down."
On the tape, you hear her tell the class of 7 and 8-year-olds she could have charges filed against them and their parents for lying and violating her civil rights.
"When you lie on me, I have the right to an attorney, I have the right to file charges against you and your parents. I have the right to take you straight up to the top of the Grand Jury and the federal government and file charges against your parents and garnish whatever wages are in your houses; that's the law," the reading teacher is heard on the tape telling the classroom of second graders.
So what did the Houston Independent School District decide to do about Mrs.Haston?
a video camera should record every class. Any parent should have the right to view the video. I had a teacher when I was in 2nd grade divide the class by how smart kids were, and call her bad side retards.
And..make the children feel as they are responsible for putting their families in peril. What a shame.
No, that is NOT the teacher in question.
This teacher needs to learn the Bill of Rights and some Constitutional articles.............
List to the tape at the link.
And to think... I went to school in Houston ISD back when all teacher did was whack your hind end when you did wrong!

I think we should be melting their phone lines down about Savonya Depland Haston, the despicable human being that calls herself a teacher.
Thanks, I’ll ask the mod to pull the post.
Holy crap, I jumped the gun and thought the teacher was black....OOOPSY!

Hello...I am a Computer Technologist at DeChaumes Elem. member of the North District Vertical Team, Vice President of ATPE Houston Local Unit, University of Houston Century Club Alumni. Just for the record I wear many hats for my school and for several organizations.
I read an article once that most public school teachers finished in the bottom 25% of their college graduating class. I think they were giving them way too much credit.
Aw, c’mon. Give her a break. She teaches _reading_ not _grammar_. /sarc
We need to take the schools back from the NEA. Children shouldn’t have to be abused just to make sure someone has a job.
According to the video, it is!
She was reassigned as she’s “protected”.
Look at page two...she was once the VP on the executive board.
Well, THAT's a surprising statement from ol' Quanell.
Hey - give it a break! She's a reading teacher. She don't have to talk good.
This child abuse plain and simple. Charges need to be filed and her minority ass needs to be in jail.
