Teacher of the Fear

May 28th, 2017 – A Texas schoolteacher has drawn the ire of parents, students and administrators after targeting a seventh grade student during a class presentation. The teacher handed out a printed certificate to a student named Lizeth Villanueva that identified her as the student “Most Likely to Become a Terrorist.”

This happened one day after a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured dozens more after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, UK. The ceremony at the Houston-area school was for a group of honors-level students and allowed teachers the chance to present mock awards as a “joke” for the class. According to reports of the incident, Villanueva’s teacher laughed as she signed the certificate in front of the other students as well as teachers who also joined in on the laughter.

Other joke awards handed out were “Most Likely to Become Homeless in Guatemala” and “Most Likely to Blend in with White People.” Villanueva, who is of Salvadoran descent, was disturbed by the incident and has stayed home from school since the ceremony because she now feels “uncomfortable.”

“It was not a joke,” she told a CNN affiliate. “I do not feel comfortable with this… I do not feel comfortable being in the same classroom with [the teacher].”

The school district’s formal statement of apology read in part:

“The Channelview ISD Administration would like to apologize for the insensitive and offensive fake mock awards that were given to students in a classroom… [and] would like to reassure the community that this incident does not reflect the many good things going on in our district.”

One parent expressed both anger and shock over the behavior of the school personnel, telling The Washington Post:

“I was upset and very mad when I saw the award… I was surprised because my daughter has been doing well in the honors program.”

Despite the apology from the school’s principal and the official statement from the school district, at least one of the teachers in question doesn’t appear concerned about the impact of their actions. According to Villanueva, the teacher offered the following explanation:

“She said that some people might get offended, but she doesn’t really care about our feelings.”

The district is conducting an investigation into what happened and insists the teachers responsible have been disciplined.

So is this political correctness run amok or did the teacher not understand the assignment? Funny or Offensive? Vote and comment now!

  1. I think mock awards are fine, but they shouldn’t target students on things they can’t control like race or gender. They should be based on the student’s actions. This one did cross a line that should have been simple common sense, especially for an educator.

  2. It would have been more appropriate had it been given to the class clown. I think the video said it was given during a fake awards ceremony, so maybe they should have avoided offending the anal student by giving her a pretentious award like fucking rocket scientist or something.

  3. Is it real? The 2017-2018 year won’t start until September. Her award should be for 2016-2017. Not buying it. And if ANYONE took the time to read the Damn article…it was a presentation for MOCK AWARDS…..where teachers give away silly awards. Effing people always jumping to the worst conclusions.

    1. It’s in bad taste, poor decision making. Honestly I’m not offended personally, but it’s not even remotely funny. Just another example of stupid people doing stupid shit and only making a bad situation worse.

  4. Extremely offensive. In fact, I am offended they have honors such as most likely to succeed and the like. It’s a popularity contest that serves no purpose other than to make people feel good about themselves.

  5. It’s funny because I don’t have any connection to it, but if it was real and it was my kid, I’d be doing a lot more than be offensive to the teacher they’d catch these hands so quick lmao god I love this page though.. it’s too good

  6. I think it’s funny because teachers have a very unique perspective on the true characters of some of the kids. This kid was probably a hellion and as a joke, the teacher called her a future terrorist. The thing about jokes, there’s always some truth to them. Always. I think this speaks truth about this kid’s character.

    1. Fun fact Einstien smoked alot of pot.
      I smoke for pain control and on point to be a doctor.
      Pot don’t make stupid people, stupid people make stupid people lol.
      On that note a ton of sucessful people smoke or have smoked heavy at one point in there life.

    2. Seth Fleharty Fun facts: a lot is two words NOT one, pot doesn’t (not don’t) make people stupid, their lives (not there life). On your way to being a doctor huh? God help us all.

    3. Lol
      Need a safe space snowflake?
      Fake ass people always always crack me up
      I love i bother you enough to go find pictures because you can’t say anything of value other then insults

    4. Lol have a nice life although i doubt you do to rage like that.
      You made me laugh harder then i have for abit thank you.
      On a serious note really have a good day.

    1. You have a better chance of being struck by lightening 3 times in the exact same spot than you do of dying from a terrorist. Please go to sleep and quit promoting our government corrupt wars jackass. Thanks have a nice day.

    2. And on that note, you are almost 20 times more likely to be killed by your doctors on accident than you are by a gun on purpose.

      Look up deaths by “medical accident” vs “firearm homicide”, and see some top level catastrophising about which one is the killer

    3. And on that note 2 men had their throats slashed while defending a couple Muslim women from a radial Christian terrorist. 15 minutes from my house. They were just trying to go home to their families. Tell me again how funny this is?

    4. Did I say any of it was funny?

      I said look at how much catastrophising there is.
      Don’t be an over emotional ninnyhammer, Jason.

    5. Can you even read the comment above mine?

      “You have a better chance of being struck by lightning 3 times in the exact same spot than you do of dying from a terrorist”

      They’re talking about how people catastrophise, and imagine that things are everywhere all the time, so I expanded on their point.

      There’s two magic powers you might need, reading comprehension and emotional self control. The keys to finding them are cleverly hidden in ancient artifacts called books, or a long forgotten ritual known as “listening to people”

      Try both, it might help

    6. Keith Stoker My point was terrorism isn’t funny. Your point is you are bored in moms basement and want to have an internet fight. I’ll pass.
