“Come at me:” California teacher suspended after being caught berating student on zoom, threatening parents

Yet another teacher has been caught complaining about distance learning in a Zoom session, this time upset because parents are more involved in their children’s’ education- to include preventing them from being abused by their teacher.

The teacher, who was recorded complaining on the Zoom meeting, felt parents were too involved in trying to ensure their children got attention in aspects where they may have been falling short as families across America adjust to distance learning.

The California educator, identified as San Marcos High School teacher Alissa Piro, was previously seen going off on her students over questions regarding racial equality and representation.

Turning her attention to a student named Jake, she berated him for inquiring about a “white student union.”

“You don’t need a white student union, Jake. You get everything,” the teacher shrieked.

Despite the incident being reported to SMHS Principal Adam Dawson, no known follow-up was mention when the matter was looked into.

According to Fox News, Piro would later lash out at her students, channeling anger reserved for their respective parents.

“If your parent wants to talk to me about their profession and their opinion on their profession, I would love to hear that…,” she said. “However, if your parent wants to come talk to me about how I’m not doing a good enough job in distance learning based on what you need as an individual? Just dare them to come at me. Because I am so sick to my stomach of parents trying to tell educators how to do their job.”

One mother complained that Piro’s students are bullied in her English class, and that the school district shares responsibility for not addressing the matter.

“These poor kids have endured so much. I held onto the video for 3 months and hardly told a soul fearing retaliation,” she said. “I shared it with some of my close friends a few weeks ago when I saw her behavior was continuing this term and I felt awful for not standing up for these kids sooner.”

Others noted that Piro was fired from a High Tech elementary school, adding that Piro has reportedly “gone downhill.”

In the past, other teachers have complained about parent involvement increasing due to distance learning, particularly when it came to “conservative parents” listening in on virtual classes and the “damage” they may cause.

In some cases, schools have asked parents sign forms agreeing to refrain from monitoring their child’s online class sessions.
