A New Jersey teacher has unexpectedly found herself in hot water lately after discovering two of her kindergartner students in the bathroom naked and “having sex.” After immediately reporting the incident to the principal, the teacher was suspended while police completed their investigation.

It was a normal day in the kindergarten classroom of Kelly Mascio when, for an undisclosed reason, she investigated the bathroom. After opening the door, you can imagine her shock when she saw two of her students–one boy and one girl–naked.

When asked what they were doing, the kindergartners told Mascio that they were “having sex.” She immediately had the students get dressed and called the principal, Matthew Mazzoni. He then promptly reported the incident to the authorities as well as the state Department of Youth and Family Services.

For some reason, Mascio was placed on immediate suspension, with pay, while police carried out and completed their investigation.

Adding insult to injury, the school’s Board of Education is seeking to terminate the teacher who has dedicated over 15 years of service to the school. Even though no criminal charges have been filed on the respectable teacher the Board is seeking to file them through the state in order to remove the teacher from her position.

This didn’t go over so well in regards to the community as during their next Board meeting, over 200 supporters of Mascio flooded in backing the teacher. Showing the pompous Board the error in their ways, Mullica Township Education Association President Barbara Rheault conveyed, “Our main concern is that the administration has completely forgone all traditional disciplinary avenues available in handling the incident.”

She went on to argue that, “The administration has selected a disciplinary route that has resulted in enormous emotional and professional turmoil, and has strained the confidence and trust of school staff, parents and community members.”

Mascio seems confident that the Board will come to their senses as she recently posted a picture to her facebook wall reading, “I call my students ‘my kids’ because in our year together they aren’t just kids on my class list, they become a part of my heart.”

The Board is yet to reverse their decision but seeing the support the community the community has shown, as well as legal representation–and probable union help–it seems likely that this will soon be the case.

What do you think–does Mascio really deserve to lose her job over this? After all, she did report the incident immediately. Why do you think the Board is pushing so hard for her termination? Let us know in a comment below!
