WPTV- A former freshman at Port St. Lucie High School is suing Port St. Lucie high School math teacher Meri-Ann Johnson. The teenager’s lawyer, Gloria Seidule, said he claims last year, he was repeatedly exposed to sexually inappropriate behavior in Johnson’s ninth-grade math class. “An algebra teacher was using sex talk as a ‘teaching tool’,” said Seidule. Seidule said her client, the former student, said Johnson said, “How about if I get naked?” Seidule said the student alleged Johnson “simulated” a strip tease in front of the classroom, and took off her shoe, and walked over and and slapped it on the top of (the student’s) desk.” The summary shows Johnson admitted to using a sex reference explaining an algebraic concept, explaining the X + Y intercept, and the student alleges she also responded inappropriately after he requested to go to the water fountain. “She responded, ‘How about if I pour this water over my body and you can lick it off of me,’ and then proceeded to simulate a sex act with the water bottle,” said Seidule.
You think Jaime Escalante had it tough trying to reach a classroom full of underprivileged inner city kids calculus? I guarantee he had it ten times easier than Gloria Seidule trying to teach freshman in high school algebra. I took algebra in high school and do you know what I can tell you about the X + Y intercept? Jack shit, because I was too busy trying to figure out how to hide a boner in a pair of exercise pants for 45 minutes to pay attention to what the teacher was saying, But I’m pretty sure that if the x-variable was “naked” you would have had my attention in a heartbeat.This chick doesn’t deserve to gets sued, she deserves to get an award. I guess you could criticize her for the whole water bottle thing because 9th grade is way to early to introduce kids to the ideas of fluid mechanics, but you have to admire her ambition.
