Nicole Griggs, has been a teacher at Steinert High School in New Jersey for the last 15 years and today she made it on the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
She was caught on camera telling students who were playing football in the park that they should die a long, painful death from the coronavirus. From the Trentonian:
A math teacher at Steinert High School was caught on video this week shouting at a group of teenagers playing football in the park that they should die a long, painful death from the coronavirus.
The teacher was identified by multiple sources as Nicole Griggs, who has been a township teacher for the last 15 years and also taught middle school, according to the district website.
One of the teenagers, a freshman at Steinert, told The Trentonian that he and a group of school friends were playing football Thursday at the former Homedell School, on the 500 block of East Franklin Street, when Griggs stopped to admonish them from behind a chain-link fence.
In an April 6 post on the Facebook page of Nikki Leigh, which Griggs appears to operate under an alias, she says: We are surrounded by idiots!!!!!! Rode our bikes near Kuser Park this afternoon and what to [sic] we see but a younger couple with their daughter maybe 2/3 years old UNDOING the caution tape around the jungle gym so she could slide. I totally called them out on it, wished illness on them and commented that it was scary to even think they were parents. Their response: We were going to put it back.
Mayor Jeff Martin condemned the teachers actions, but it remains unclear if she will keep her job.
This is a very serious thing, he said. Weve got at least 50 people who have actually died from it, 50 families. Its not something to joke around about. Teacher or not, its unacceptable.
This does not surprise me at all. As a matter of fact, I automatically assume its a government worker of some sort when I see things like this. If its a woman, almost guaranteed it is a teacher.
The impulse to control others is generally very high in people that cant control themselves, whatever these ladies issues are, they are rooted much deeper than in whether she cares or not these kids are safe and that is evident in her over response to this situation.
I just love teachers who love children!
This is a teacher who should never be a teacher. She is a rude mean-spirited battleax. Who gets an education degree because it is easy.
She will NEVER lose her job...NEVER!
I dunno. Maybe the little b@stards had it coming.
“Who gets an education degree because it is easy.”
That’s it in a nutshell.
And of course, she’s a liberal/progressive because what else can one be when one is - shall we say - one bun shy of a big mac.
2 kids in the park, where they spitting on each other?
Dont forget about that Denver city councilwoman who wanted infectious people to go to Trump rallies.
I'm sure they hate her guts because she hates theirs.
“We were riding our bikes”. WE! As in more than one. Social distancing for thee but not for me. Hypocrite.
She can go out, but others can not.
Who died and left her in charge?
She finishes with...
“Im just trying to save your life. I hope you both die a long painful death.
Yet another prog nutcase.

To hell with trying to fire her, given the NEA's BS -- [rest of comment redacted]
The problem is this one may have said it out loud but how many feel that way but are smart enough to keep it themselves.
I want to have respect for teachers but thanks to the damage done by the teachers Union and the leftist teachings of so many teachers; I simply cannot.
Kind of looks like she would pass the Laz test.
It apparently kills statists about 5-1 over Republic lovers, so she should be careful what she wishes for.
Another Karen. Women are driving the lockdowns.
I am thinking maybe teach should be cut slack on this. Maybe she was trying to sink into their thick skulls so they would socially distance. Hard to reach a teenager. Maybe that wasn’t the best method.
I missed the /S tag...
