Teacher accidentally sends parent insulting text messages about her son
TEXAS CITY, Texas —
The parent of a special needs student is outraged after she says her son's teacher sent her two text messages about him by mistake.
According to KPRC, Tiffany Elfstrom was on the phone with the teacher Monday as she was getting the text messages about her son, Jayden, 13, who has special needs.
Elfstrom said the teacher sent her two messages. "This little MF'er is crying like a baby for mommy because he wants to go home," the first message said.
The second one, sent minutes later, read: "OMG, OMG I just want to OMGGGG pull all my (expletive) hair out."
Elfstrom said Jayden has been diagnosed with autism, ADHD and bipolar disorder. She said the teacher told her she meant to send the messages to herself.
Elfstrom said she went to school to pick up her son and showed the messages to an assistant principal.
A spokesperson for the Texas City Independent School District released a statement, saying, "the text is highly inappropriate and does not represent the character of people we want teaching our students."
The statement added that the teacher was removed from the classroom and is no longer under contract with the district.
