A Memphis-Shelby County School teacher is in hot water over a social media post.
The teacher at Chimney Rock Elementary posted a photo of marijuana-infused gummies on Facebook, according to multiple sources.
The educator uploaded a photo of “Stoner Patch Gummies,” along with with a controversial caption, WMC reported.
“Best gummies ever. I fell [off] the wagon when two non verbal autistic children were placed in my class. These are very calming and keeps me away from alcohol.”
MSCS placed the teacher on investigative leave, sharing this statement with local media.
“Thank you for reaching out. The statements shared do NOT reflect our belief in the sanctity and value of every child, and District officials are investigating the situation. Please know, we share your disappointment and MSCS and Chimneyrock takes such matters seriously.
We are working on a schoolwide initiative that reflects our value of affirming all students, and we welcome your input on a collective show of support that the Chimneyrock family can do in the coming days.”
